Arrow provides update on Pembina drilling program

CALGARY, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - Arrow Energy Ltd. (TSX Venture: AOF) ("Arrow" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its Pembina, Alberta drilling program.

The first well of the program, located at 6-4-48-3 W5M, has been completed and is expected to begin production testing next week. The Company expects to test the 6-4 well for two to three weeks. In addition, the second well, located at 16-34-47-3 W5M, has reached total depth and the drilling rig has been released. Completion and testing of the 16-34 well is expected to occur over the next several weeks. Drilling operations on third well of the program, located at 6-33-47-3 W5M, are underway.

These horizontal wells are being drilled to test the Cardium formation; the 6-4 well being completed with 11 multistage fracture stimulations. A similar completion program has been successful in wells drilled in the Cardium formation on lands on trend to Arrow's property. Arrow will initially have a 16.6% working interest in these wells and potentially up to a 25% working interest in the pool development. The number of wells and timing of the development of the Company's Pembina lands will depend on the success of the three wells, the price of oil and participation of partners. These wells qualify for both the Alberta Drilling Royalty Credit and New Well Royalty Reduction programs.

In addition, the Company advises that its Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders, which was originally to be held on September 21, 2009, will be held on Tuesday, October 20, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. in the offices of Macleod Dixon LLP, 3700 Canterra Tower, 400 Third Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta.

Arrow is a Calgary-based junior resource company engaged in the exploration, development and production of natural gas and oil primarily in Alberta.
