Pryme Energy Limited (ASX:PYM) Rosewood Plantation 21H No.1 Flow Test Update

Brisbane, Australia, Feb 26, 2013 - (ABN Newswire) - Pryme Energy Limited (ASX:PYM.AX - News) (OTCQX:POGLY - News) report that the drill rig used to drill the Rosewood Plantation 21H No.1 well is being removed from site. Inclement weather delayed the demobilization of the rig and has, in turn, delayed the flow test until this coming weekend.

"This is a very exciting time for the company and our shareholders, many of whom were with us prior to our first Turner Bayou Austin Chalk well in 2010," said Justin Pettett, Pryme's Managing Director. "All indications point towards a good flow test as a result of the naturally occurring oil and gas bearing fractures that we intersected while drilling."

About Turner Bayou

The Turner Bayou project comprises approximately 80 square miles (50,000 acres) which have been imaged by a proprietary 3D seismic survey. Pryme has a 40% working interest in 25,029 acres (10,011 net acres) in the Turner Bayou project and is initially targeting development of the Austin Chalk horizon. In addition to the Austin Chalk potential of the Turner Bayou project area, exploration drilling within Pryme's Turner Bayou leases has intersected the Wilcox and Midway Shale intervals above the Austin Chalk and the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale (TMS)
