    (TSXV Symbol - PEF; AMEX Symbol - PED)

    CALGARY, Jan. 20 /CNW/ - Further to the official announcement on January
16, 2009, Petroflow Energy Ltd. has graduated from the TSXV to the TSX. The
Company's common shares, previously traded on the TSXV, will be traded on the
TSX starting today, January 20, 2009.

    Stock Symbol:   PEF
    CUSIP:          715918405
    Currency:       $ CDN

    The Company is subject to the reporting requirements of Section 501 of
    the TSX Company Manual.

    Mr. John Melton, CEO of Petroflow commented, "We laid out a plan to grow
the Company and we are very pleased to be reaching our goals; one of which was
to graduate to the senior stock exchange in Canada. The management of
Petroflow is charged with making effective changes to adjust to the new
economy. The leadership and expertise within the Company allows us to be very
confident about our next growth phase".
    Petroflow has operations in Oklahoma, Texas and Alberta. Petroflow has
developed specific expertise in the Hunton Resource Play in Oklahoma that has
proven to be successful. Horizontal drilling in the Hunton formation allows
large scale water withdrawal in a very brief period of time. This high rate
withdrawal changes the fluid dynamics within the reservoir allowing otherwise
trapped hydrocarbons to be economically produced.
    Mr. Sandy Andrew, COO commented, "Since we entered into the Farmout to
develop this play in April of 2006, we have spud 64 Hunton producers with 57
currently tied in and the other 7 in various stages of completion and hook up.
Production continues to ramp up, with most of these wells continuing some
level of dewatering".
    Petroflow recently formalized a Joint Venture Agreement (JVA) to add 3
new project areas within the Hunton Play. The JVA is unburdened by any carried
interests and will contribute towards improved economics in the Hunton Play.
