    Corporate Profile

    TG World is a Calgary-based, junior international oil and gas exploration
company. On March 18, 2006, TG World Energy Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of
TG World, entered into a major exploration project through the formation of a
joint venture with Brooks Range Petroleum Corporation. The BRPC / TG World
Joint Venture ("JV") was formed as an exploration strategic alliance covering
a large area of mutual interest on the Alaskan Central North Slope. The
Company's indirect interest in the Central North Slope Alaska Joint Venture
includes a 25 - 35% working interest in approximately 335,000 gross acres of
lease lands and an AMI under which additional lands may be acquired. The
Company has a 35% working interest in the Gwydyr Bay Prospect Area. The North
Shore No.1 well was cased as a potential oil producer in the 2006/07 winter
drilling season. The well is approximately 1,100 feet west of and appears to
be comparable to the 1974 Mobil Gwydyr Bay South No.1 well, which reportedly
flowed at an average rate of 2,263 bopd on production test from the same
formation. A full testing program of the North Shore No.1 well is expected to
be undertaken during the 2007/08 winter season, as well as the drilling of up
to three additional wells.
    Through a wholly-owned subsidiary, TG World holds a 20% carried interest
in the Ténéré Block, an oil and gas concession in the Republic of Niger,
Africa, measuring 71,155 square kilometers (17.3 million acres). The Ténéré
Block contains the northern half of the Termit - Ténéré Rift. The southern
half is adjacent to the Agadem Block, where six oil discoveries and one gas
discovery have been announced. CNPCIT, a unit of CNPC, holds the other 80% of
the Ténéré concession and acts as operator of the project. The first two wells
to test the Ténéré Block, Saha-1 and Fachi West-1 (drilled earlier in 2007),
were dry holes. The selection of the location for the third prospect is
expected to be finalized in the near term.

    Certain information set out in this News Release constitutes
forward-looking information. Forward-looking statements are often, but not
always, identified by the use of words such as "seek", "anticipate", "plan",
"continue", "estimate", "expect", "may", "will", "intend", "could", "might",
"should", "believe" and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are
based upon the opinions, expectations and estimates of management as at the
time such statements are made and, in certain cases, information provided or
disseminated by third parties, and are subject to a variety of risks and
uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual events or outcomes to
differ materially from those anticipated in or implied by such forward-looking
statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, such things as the
volatility of prices for oil and gas and other commodities, commodity supply
and demand, fluctuations in currency and interest rates, inherent risks
associated with the exploration and development of oil and gas properties,
ultimate recoverability of reserves, timing, results and costs of exploration
and development activities, availability of financial resources or third-party
financing, availability of drilling and related equipment and new laws and
regulations (domestic and foreign). Forward-looking information respecting the
scheduled closing date for the Offering is based upon the agreement entered
into with Wellington West and advice received from Wellington West.
Forward-looking information relating to the timing of receipt of initial funds
on account of the State of Alaska exploration credit program is based upon the
published terms of that program and TG World's understanding of administrative
practices developed by the State of Alaska in relation to the exploration
credit program. Forward-looking information respecting timing of testing of
the North Shore No.1 well and the drilling of additional wells in Alaska is
based upon prior test results obtained in connection with the drilling of the
North Shore No.1 well, the current exploration and development plan developed
by the Alaska joint venture participants and the current budget for
exploration and development activities approved by the Alaska joint venture
participants (which is subject to change). Forward-looking information
respecting anticipated drilling activities on the Ténéré Concession is based
upon advice received from the operator of the Ténéré Concession, CNPC
International Ténéré Ltd., which, in turn, is based, among other things, upon
the current budget, development plans and overall strategy for exploration of
the Ténéré Concession developed by CNPC International Ténéré Ltd., all of
which are subject to change. Although management of the Company believes that
