TransGlobe Energy Corporation Announces Second Quarter 2010 Financial and Operating Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 5, 2010) - TransGlobe Energy Corporation ("TransGlobe" or the "Company") (TSX:TGL) (NASDAQ:TGA) is pleased to announce its financial and operating results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010. All dollar values are expressed in United States dollars unless otherwise stated. The conversion to barrels of oil equivalent ("Boe") of natural gas to oil is made on the basis of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas being equivalent to one barrel ("Bbl") of crude oil. HIGHLIGHTS - Second quarter production 9,206 Bopd (Egypt 6,631 Bopd, Yemen 2,575 Bopd); - Second quarter funds flow of $17.0 million ($0.25/share), a 21% increase over second quarter 2009; - Second quarter net income of $9.4 million ($0.14/share), compared to a $4.4 million loss in the second quarter 2009; - Drilled eight wells in second quarter resulting in seven oil wells (five at West Gharib, one at East Ghazalat and one at Block S-1); - Expanded fracture stimulation program at Arta, first multi-staged horizontal frac in Egypt and two additional vertical fracs during the second quarter; - Expanded the Nukhul play at West Gharib with multiple fields to delineate and develop with fracture stimulations (Arta, Hoshia, North Hoshia, East Arta, South Rahmi); - New pool Nukhul oil discovery at East Arta #4; - Entered into a new five-year $100.0 million Borrowing Base Facility; and - Increased the capital budget for 2010 from $63.0 million to $71.0 million, which represents a 100% increase over 2009 and is powered by new production, higher realized oil prices and the continued success in Egypt. Corporate Summary The West Gharib project area of Arab Republic of Egypt ("Egypt") continues to be a star performer in the Company's portfolio and is expected to remain the focus for continued production and reserves growth. The Company continued its development of the Arta field during the second quarter of 2010, with one horizontal and two vertical wells frac'd. The Nukhul Formation play in the northern portion of the West Gharib concession has expanded to six structures that have tested oil. There are several other structural closures that will be tested over the next 12 months. The focus of drilling in West Gharib for 2010 will be to define the size of these discoveries. Full development of the fields is expected to continue through 2011 and 2012. In the Western Desert area, the follow-up well in the Safwa field was positive and up to three additional wells are planned for the remainder of the year. In the Nuqra Block in Egypt, the Company has firmed up its drilling plans and anticipates it will drill two exploratory wells in the latter part of 2010. The drilling program in the Republic of Yemen ("Yemen") was restarted in the second quarter with one development well on production in early July. 2010 is expected to be most active drilling year in the Company's history. A conference call to discuss TransGlobe's second quarter results presented in this report will be held on Thursday, August 5, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. Mountain Time (4:30 p.m. Eastern Time) and is accessible to all interested parties by dialing (416) 340-8018 or toll-free 1-866-223-7781 (see also TransGlobe's news release dated July 29, 2010).

Subsequent to quarter-end, East Arta #3 and Hana #23 were drilled and cased as potential oil wells. The Hana #22 well was drilled at the south end of the Hana field (offset to Hana #20) to a total depth of 5,503 feet. The well was placed on production as a Kareem oil well at an initial rate of 150 Bopd in mid-April. The Arta #13 well was drilled as a western extension to the Arta Nukhul pool. The well was initially completed as a 10-15 Bopd Nukhul oil well. The Arta #13 well was fracture stimulated ("frac'd") as part of the June frac program at Arta and was producing approximately 120 Bopd in late July. The Arta #14 well was drilled, cased and completed as a producing Nukhul oil well, extending the Arta pool to the southeast. The well was frac'd in late July and is producing at an initial rate of 600 Bopd. The East Arta #2 well was drilled as a down dip eastern extension to the Arta Nukhul pool. The well encountered oil in the Nukhul formation approximately 1,000 feet structurally lower than Arta #13 and was cased as a Nukhul oil well. In addition to extending the pool to the east, the well encountered a thicker Nukhul including a new oil pool in the lower Nukhul sand. The well was completed in the lower Nukhul and placed on initial production at 120 Bopd prior to stimulation. The planned frac in the upper Nukhul has been deferred due to the encouraging performance of the un-stimulated lower Nukhul which is currently producing 85 Bopd. Based on preliminary in-house deterministic volumetric estimates, the Petroleum Initially in Place ("PIIP") for the Arta pool has increased from 28 million barrels ("MMBbl") to 36 MMBbl. Additional drilling to the east and north will be required to determine the extent of the pool. A second drilling rig was contracted initially to focus on exploration/appraisal projects in the southern development leases (Hana, Hoshia, West Hoshia and Fadl) which are typically deeper tests. The first well with the new rig, Hana West #9, was drilled to a total depth of 6,910 feet and cased as dual zone oil well. The well encountered oil pay in the Kareem and Lower Rudeis sands. The well was completed in the Lower Rudeis formation placed on production at an initial rate of 800+ Bopd in early July. The East Arta #3 exploration well was drilled, cased and completed as a Nukhul oil well in July. East Arta #3 encountered a thin sand section in the Nukhul on a separate structure approximately 2.4 kilometers northeast of East Arta #2. The well is being evaluated for frac stimulation. The East Arta #4 exploration well is drilling below the Nukhul formation and is targeting to reach total depth in the Nubia formation next week. The well was drilled through the Nukhul formation, logged and cased prior to drilling the deep section of the well. It is thick Nukhul formation with an estimated 32 feet of net pay. An oil sample (20 degree API) was recovered on wireline. Following East Arta #4 the drilling rig will move back to the Arta field to drill step-out appraisals. The Hana #23 well was drilled to a total depth of 7,127 feet and cased as a Kareem formation oil well. The well will be completed as a Kareem producer in August. Following Hana #23, the rig will move to Hoshia #9 to drill a dual target (Rudeis/Nukhul). Fracture stimulations During the first quarter, the Company successfully fracture stimulated the Nukhul formation in Arta #9 during February, followed by three additional fracs in mid-March at Arta #2, #4 and #8. The wells have been placed on production and the early production rates indicate they will stabilize in the 100-300 Bopd range per well which represents a more than tenfold increase over the pre-frac rates. In June, TransGlobe successfully completed the first, multi-stage, horizontal ("Hz") well stimulation in the Arab Republic of Egypt ("Egypt") at Arta #12. The final stage of the 600,000 pound multi-stage frac was completed on June 17. The well was placed on production on June 23 at a rate of 300-400 Bopd. Based on continued high pumping fluid levels, the well is scheduled for a larger pump installation in Q3 following the current frac program. Arta #12 Hz was producing approximately 15 Bopd prior to the fracture stimulation. Following the Arta #12 Hz frac, the Arta #13 and Arta #1 vertical wells were frac'd and placed on production in late June. Subsequent to the quarter, the Nukhul formation was frac'd in vertical wells at Arta #6, Arta #7 and Arta #14 during July with additional fracs planned for Hoshia #8, South Rahmi #3 and East Arta wells in August. Total Arta field production has increased from an average of 130 Bopd in January 2010 to approximately 722 Bopd in the second quarter and 969 Bopd in July. The recent drilling and fracing program has now identified at least five Nukhul oil pools. The development of these pools as well as additional Nukhul exploration tests is expected to be the focus of future reserve additions in West Gharib. Production Production from West Gharib averaged 6,631 Bopd to TransGlobe during the second quarter, a 3% (217 Bopd) decrease from the previous quarter. Production was curtailed in June to 6,254 Bopd due to scheduled workovers and liner installations associated with the Arta frac program. Production averaged 7,255 Bopd to TransGlobe during July with the addition of the Arta wells and Hana West #9. /T/ Quarterly West Gharib Production (Bopd) 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q-2 Q-1 Q-4 Q-3 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gross production rate 6,631 6,848 5,815 5,747 TransGlobe working interest 6,631 6,848 5,815 5,747 TransGlobe net (after royalties) 4,040 4,250 3,775 3,732 TransGlobe net (after royalties and tax)(1) 3,009 3,222 2,951 2,918 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Under the terms of the West Gharib Production Sharing Concession, royalties and taxes are paid out of the Government's share of production sharing oil. /T/ East Ghazalat Block, Arab Republic of Egypt (50% working interest) Operations and Exploration Two wells were drilled during the quarter resulting in one oil well (Safwa NW #1) and one dry hole (Sahab #1). The Sahab #1 well was drilled to a total depth of 8,638 feet and abandoned in late April. The Safwa NW-1 well was drilled to a total depth of 4,440 feet and completed as a Bahariya oil well. A 30 foot net pay section was encountered in the Bahariya sandstones. A 14 foot interval was perforated and tested at a rate of 250 barrels of light, 34º API oil per day. The Safwa NW-1 well is located 2.5 kilometers to the northwest of the Safwa #1 discovery well which tested 300 Bopd from the same formation. Safwa NW-1 was the fourth well and the second discovery in the exploration drilling program conducted by operator Vegas Oil & Gas SA ("Vegas") in partnership with TransGlobe. Subsequent to the quarter, the partners have discussed a new drilling program which could commence in August. Potentially two appraisal/exploration wells are planned for the Safwa structure which has Petroleum Initially in Place ("PIIP") of 20.6 MMBbl. The third well is targeting the Nakhil prospect which has an estimated PIIP of 10.4 MMBbl could be added to the program. The Nakhil prospect is located approximately 8 kilometers southwest of Safwa #1. The PIIP numbers are based on in-house estimates using the respective probabilistic P-mean cases. The East Ghazalat Concession is located in the prolific Abu Gharadiq basin of Egypt's Western Desert, approximately 250 kilometers west of Cairo. East Ghazalat was awarded to Vegas Oil and Gas SA (Operator) on June 5, 2007 and reached the end of the first, three-year exploration period on June 5, 2010. Pursuant to the terms of the Concession agreement, 25% of the 858 km2 original concession was relinquished prior to entering the first, two-year extension period on June 6, 2010. All work commitments have been met for the first exploration period and the two extension periods. Nuqra Block 1, Arab Republic of Egypt (71.43% working interest, TransGlobe operated) Operations and Exploration TransGlobe plans to drill two exploration wells commencing in the fourth quarter, subject to rig availability and government approvals. The first two wells will test the Diwan and Selsella prospects. The Company has mapped five prospects in the eastern extension of the Kom Ombo sub-basin where the Al Baraka oil field was discovered by Dana Gas. The following table is a summary of the current Nuqra prospects: /T/ Gross PIIP(1) Name Status (MMBbl) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Diwan Prospect 46.0 Selsella Prospect 13.6 Raghama Prospect 162.0 Dabud Lead 37.2 W.

The joint venture partners approved two development wells for the Godah pool in 2010. Godah #11 commenced drilling on August 2, 2010. Godah #12 is scheduled for the fourth quarter. Production Production from Block 32 averaged 4,461 Bopd (616 Bopd to TransGlobe) during the quarter, representing a 10% decrease from the previous quarter primarily due to natural declines and down time for pump replacements at Tasour. Production averaged approximately 4,388 Bopd (606 Bopd to TransGlobe) during July. /T/ Quarterly Block 32 Production (Bopd) 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q-2 Q-1 Q -4 Q-3 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gross production rate 4,464 4,948 5,174 5,501 TransGlobe working interest 616 683 715 760 TransGlobe net (after royalties) 315 472 437 467 TransGlobe net (after royalties and tax)(1) 215 400 346 370 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Under the terms of the Block 32 Production Sharing Agreement ("PSA"), royalties and taxes are paid out of the government's share of production sharing oil. /T/ Block 72, Republic of Yemen (20% working interest) Operations and Exploration The Block 72 joint venture partnership entered the second, 30-month exploration period in January 2009 which carries a commitment of one exploration well. The Block 72 joint venture partnership has entered into a farm-out agreement with TOTAL E&P Yemen who is the Operator of Block 10 in the Masila Basin, subject to approval by the Ministry of Oil and Minerals. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company will reduce its working interest from 33% to 20%. An exploration well targeting a fractured basement prospect on the northern portion of Block 72 is planned for the fourth quarter of 2010. YEMEN WEST- Marib Basin Block S-1, Republic of Yemen (25% working interest) Operations and Exploration An Nagyah #25 was drilled and completed as a producing Lam A oil well during the quarter. Subsequent to the quarter, drilling commenced at An Nagyah #4. An Nagyah #25 and #4 are re-entries of existing vertical wells to drill short radius horizontal laterals in the Lam A pool to improve production and reserve recoveries. The An Nagyah #25 Hz well was placed on production at an initial flowing rate of approximately 1,300 Bopd in mid-July. Following An Nagyah #4, the rig is scheduled to drill a new development horizontal well at An Nagyah #29. In total six to eight horizontal wells are planned for the An Nagyah pool. In addition to An Nagyah development drilling program, two exploration wells (one on Block S-1 and one on Block 75) and a horizontal appraisal well in the Osaylan pool are planned. It is expected that the Block S-1 exploration well (An Nagyah Basement) will be drilled late in the third quarter following An Nagyah #29. The An Nagyah Basement exploration well is targeting a separate Lam terrace adjacent to the producing An Nagyah field and a fractured Basement prospect under the main field. The well will be drilled vertically through the Lam formation and then directionally drilled at a high angle into the Basement structure. The well is targeting a gross PIIP of 21.2 MMBbl in the Lam prospect and 73.1 MMBbl in the fractured Basement prospect, based on internally generated estimates using the respective probabilistic P-mean case. Production Production from Block S-1 averaged 7,836 Bopd (1,959 Bopd to TransGlobe) during the second quarter, representing a 9% decline from the previous quarter, primarily due to increased associated gas production and gas injection capacity. Concurrent with the horizontal development drilling program, the operator is installing additional compression to increase gas injection capacity. It is expected the additional compression will be installed by the fourth quarter. Production averaged approximately 6,136 Bopd (1,534 Bopd to TransGlobe) during July, due to compressor overhauls at the An Nagyah central production facility. /T/ Quarterly Block S-1 Production (Bopd) 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q2 Q1 Q-4 Q-3 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gross field production rate 7,836 8,652 8,504 9,428 TransGlobe working interest 1,959 2,163 2,126 2,357 TransGlobe net (after royalties) 995 1,169 867 1,254 TransGlobe net (after royalties and tax)(1) 744 906 585 985 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Under the terms of the Block S-1 PSA royalties and taxes are paid out of the government's share of production sharing oil. /T/ Block 75, Republic of Yemen (25% working interest) Operations and Exploration The PSA for Block 75 was ratified and signed into law effective March 8, 2008. The first, three year exploration phase has a work commitment of 3-D seismic and one exploration well. The 3-D seismic was acquired in 2009. One exploration well is planned as part of the Block S-1/75 drilling program. The Block 75 exploration well is currently scheduled for the first quarter of 2011. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS August 5, 2010 Management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") should be read in conjunction with the unaudited interim financial statements for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 and the audited financial statements and MD&A for the year ended December 31, 2009 included in the Company's annual report. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in Canada in the currency of the United States (except where otherwise noted). Additional information relating to the Company, including the Company's Annual Information Form, is on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. The Company's annual report and Form 40-F may be found on EDGAR at www.sec.gov. READER ADVISORIES Forward-Looking Statements This MD&A may include certain statements that may be deemed to be "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements relate to possible future events. All statements other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "seek", "anticipate", "plan", "continue", "estimate", "expect", "may", "will", "project", "predict", "potential", "targeting", "intend", "could", "might", "should", "believe" and similar expressions. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. Although TransGlobe's forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs, expectations, opinions and assumptions of the Company's management on the date the statements are made, such statements are inherently uncertain and provide no guarantee of future performance. Actual results may differ materially from TransGlobe's expectations as reflected in such forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, many of which are beyond the control of the Company. These factors include, but are not limited to, unforeseen changes in the rate of production from TransGlobe's oil and gas properties, changes in price of crude oil and natural gas, adverse technical factors associated with exploration, development, production or transportation of TransGlobe's crude oil and natural gas reserves, changes or disruptions in the political or fiscal regimes in TransGlobe's areas of activity, changes in tax, energy or other laws or regulations, changes in significant capital expenditures, delays or disruptions in production due to shortages of skilled manpower, equipment or materials, economic fluctuations, and other factors beyond the Company's control. TransGlobe does not assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements, other than as required by law, if circumstances or management's beliefs, expectations or opinions should change and investors should not attribute undue certainty to, or place undue reliance on, any forward-looking statements. Please consult TransGlobe's public filings at www.sedar.com and www.sec.gov for further, more detailed information concerning these matters. Use of Barrel of Oil Equivalents The calculation of barrels of oil equivalent ("Boe") is based on a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas ("Mcf") to one barrel ("Bbl") of crude oil. Boe's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A Boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Non-GAAP Measures Funds Flow from Operations This document contains the term "funds flow from operations", which should not be considered an alternative to or more meaningful than "cash flow from operating activities" as determined in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). Funds flow from operations is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash generated from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital. Management considers this a key measure as it demonstrates TransGlobe's ability to generate the cash flow necessary to fund future growth through capital investment. Funds flow from operations may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. /T/ Reconciliation of Funds Flow from Operations Three Months Ended Six Months Ended June 30 June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ($000s) 2010 2009 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash flow from operating activities 15,627 15,052 19,881 22,941 Changes in non-cash working capital 1,400 (935) 16,219 (183) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Funds flow from operations 17,027 14,117 36,100 22,758 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ Debt-to-funds flow ratio Debt-to-funds flow is a non-GAAP measure that is used to set the amount of capital in proportion to risk. The Company's debt-to-funds flow ratio is computed as long-term debt, including the current portion, over funds flow from operations for the trailing twelve months. Debt-to-funds flow may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Netback Netback is a non-GAAP measure that represents sales net of royalties (all government interests, net of income taxes), operating expenses and current taxes. Management believes that netback is a useful supplemental measure to analyze operating performance and provide an indication of the results generated by the Company's principal business activities prior to the consideration of other income and expenses. Netback may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. TRANSGLOBE'S BUSINESS TransGlobe is a Canadian-based, publicly traded, oil exploration and production company whose activities are concentrated in two main geographic areas, the Arab Republic of Egypt ("Egypt") and the Republic of Yemen ("Yemen").

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT The Company's financial results are significantly influenced by fluctuations in commodity prices, including price differentials. The following table shows select market benchmark prices and foreign exchange rates: /T/ 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Q-2 Q-1 Q-4 Q-3 Q-2 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dated Brent average oil price ($/Bbl) 78.30 76.10 74.56 68.27 58.79 U.S./Canadian Dollar average exchange rate 1.028 1.016 1.056 1.098 1.167 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ The price of Dated Brent oil averaged 33% higher in Q2-2010 compared with Q2-2009. Global markets are currently in a period of economic recovery with improved liquidity and access to capital, in addition to strengthening oil prices. TransGlobe's management believes the Company is well positioned to take advantage of the improving economy due to its increasing production, manageable debt levels, positive cash generation from operations and the availability of cash and cash equivalents. The Company designed its 2010 budget to be flexible, allowing spending to be adjusted as commodity prices change and forecasts are reviewed. /T/ OPERATING RESULTS AND NETBACK Daily Volumes, Working Interest Before Royalties and Other (Bopd) Three Months Ended Six Months Ended June 30 June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Egypt - Oil sales 6,631 6,384 6,739 5,877 Yemen - Oil sales 2,575 3,235 2,710 3,329 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total Company - daily sales volumes 9,206 9,619 9,449 9,206 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netback Consolidated Six Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oil sales 123,191 72.03 70,936 42.57 Royalties and other 50,149 29.32 25,414 15.25 Current taxes 17,834 10.43 8,805 5.28 Operating expenses 12,034 7.04 10,407 6.25 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netback 43,174 25.24 26,310 15.79 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Three Months Ended June 30 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oil sales 61,540 73.46 42,557 48.62 Royalties and other 25,902 30.92 16,095 18.39 Current taxes 9,214 11.00 5,631 6.43 Operating expenses 6,247 7.46 5,201 5.94 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netback 20,177 24.08 15,630 17.86 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Egypt Six Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oil sales 85,125 69.79 40,926 38.47 Royalties and other 32,783 26.88 14,385 13.52 Current taxes 13,014 10.67 5,784 5.44 Operating expenses 7,487 6.14 5,454 5.13 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netback 31,841 26.10 15,303 14.38 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Three Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oil sales 43,094 71.42 25,531 43.95 Royalties and other 16,839 27.91 9,009 15.51 Current taxes 6,701 11.11 3,588 6.18 Operating expenses 3,845 6.37 2,667 4.59 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netback 15,709 26.03 10,267 17.67 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ The netback per Bbl in Egypt increased 47% and 82% in the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared with the same periods of 2009, mainly as a result of oil prices increasing by 63% and 81%, respectively, partially offset by higher royalty and tax rates. The average selling price during the three months ended June 30, 2010 was $71.42/Bbl, which represents a gravity/quality adjustment of approximately $6.88/Bbl to the average Dated Brent oil price for the period of $78.30/Bbl. Royalties and taxes as a percentage of revenue increased to 54% in the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, compared with 49% in the same period of 2009. Royalty and tax rates fluctuate in Egypt due to changes in the cost oil whereby the Production Sharing Contract ("PSC") allows for recovery of operating and capital costs through a reduction in government take. Operating expenses on a per Bbl basis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 increased 39% and 20%, respectively, compared with the same periods of 2009. This is mainly due to higher well service costs, fuel costs and labor costs in Egypt during the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 compared with the same periods in 2009. /T/ Yemen Six Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oil sales 38,066 77.60 30,010 49.81 Royalties and other 17,366 35.40 11,029 18.30 Current taxes 4,820 9.83 3,021 5.01 Operating expenses 4,547 9.27 4,953 8.22 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netback 11,333 23.10 11,007 18.28 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Three Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oil sales 18,446 78.72 17,026 57.84 Royalties and other 9,063 38.68 7,086 24.07 Current taxes 2,513 10.72 2,043 6.94 Operating expenses 2,402 10.25 2,534 8.61 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netback 4,468 19.07 5,363 18.22 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ In Yemen, the netback per Bbl increased 5% and 26% in the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared with the same periods in 2009 primarily as a result of oil prices increasing by 36% and 56%, respectively, partially offset by higher royalty and tax rates. Royalties and taxes as a percentage of revenue increased to 63% and 58% in the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared with 54% and 47%, respectively, in 2009. Royalty and tax rates fluctuate in Yemen due to changes in the amount of cost sharing oil, whereby the Block 32 and Block S-1 Production Sharing Agreements ("PSAs") allow for the recovery of operating and capital costs through a reduction in Ministry of Oil and Minerals' take of oil production. Operating expenses on a per Bbl basis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 increased 19% and 13%, respectively, mostly due to lower volumes compared to the same periods in 2009. DERIVATIVE COMMODITY CONTRACTS TransGlobe uses hedging arrangements as part of its risk management strategy to manage commodity price fluctuations and stabilize cash flows for future exploration and development programs. The hedging program remained unchanged in Q2-2010, with no new hedging arrangements being entered into. The estimated fair value of unrealized commodity contracts is reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, with any change in the unrealized positions recorded to income. The fair values of these transactions are based on an approximation of the amounts that would have been paid to, or received from, counter-parties to settle the transactions outstanding as at the Consolidated Balance Sheet date with reference to forward prices and market values provided by independent sources. The actual amounts realized may differ from these estimates. The realized loss on commodity contracts in the first six months of 2010 relates mostly to the purchase of a new financial floor derivative commodity contract for $0.4 million, compared with $0.7 million in realized gains for the same period in 2009 as a result of depressed oil prices in the first six months of last year. The mark-to-market valuation of TransGlobe's future derivative commodity contracts increased in value from a $0.5 million liability at December 31, 2009 to a $0.2 million asset at June 30, 2010, thus resulting in a $0.7 million unrealized gain on future derivative commodity contracts being recorded in the period. /T/ Three Months Ended Six Months Ended June 30 June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ($000s) 2010 2009 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Realized cash (loss) gain on commodity contracts (1) (51) (103) (417) 668 Unrealized gain (loss) on commodity contracts (2) 362 (3,378) 706 (4,349) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total derivative gain (loss) on commodity contracts 311 (3,481) 289 (3,681) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Realized cash gain (loss) represents actual cash settlements, receipts and premiums paid under the respective contracts. (2) The unrealized loss on derivative commodity contracts represents the change in fair value of the contracts during the period. /T/ If the Dated Brent oil price remains at the level experienced at the end of Q2-2010, the derivative asset will be realized over the next year. However, a 10% decrease in Dated Brent oil prices would result in a $0.3 million increase in the derivative commodity contract asset, thus increasing the unrealized gain by the same amount. Conversely, a 10% increase in Dated Brent oil prices would decrease the unrealized gain on commodity contracts by $0.2 million. The following commodity contracts are outstanding at June 30, 2010: /T/ Dated Brent Pricing Period Volume Type Put-Call ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Crude Oil July 1, 2010- August 31, 2010 12,000 Bbls/month Financial Collar $60.00- $84.25 July 1, 2010- August 31, 2010 9,000 Bbls/month Financial Collar $40.00- $80.00 July 1, 2010- December 31, 2010 10,000 Bbls/month Financial Floor $60.00 July 1, 2010- December 31, 2010 20,000 Bbls/month Financial Floor $65.00 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- As at June 30, 2010, the total volumes hedged for the balance of 2010 are: Six months 2010 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bbls 222,000 Bopd 1,207 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ At June 30, 2010, all of the derivative commodity contracts were classified as current assets.

The remainder of the increase was due to increased insurance, staffing and office costs. INTEREST ON LONG-TERM DEBT Interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 decreased to $0.5 million and $1.0 million, respectively (2009 - $0.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively). Interest expense includes interest on long-term debt and amortization of transaction costs associated with long-term debt. In the three months ended June 30, 2010, the Company expensed $0.1 million of transaction costs (2009 - $0.2 million). The Company had $50.0 million of debt outstanding at June 30, 2010 (June 30, 2009 - $53.0 million). The long-term debt that was outstanding at June 30, 2010 bore interest at the Eurodollar rate plus three percent. The new Borrowing Base Facility, which was entered into subsequent to June 30, 2010 and replaces the long-term debt that was outstanding at June 30, 2010, will bear interest at LIBOR plus an applicable margin that varies from 3.75% to 4.75% depending on the amount drawn under the facility. /T/ DEPLETION AND DEPRECIATION ("DD&A") Six Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Egypt 10,718 8.79 21,403 20.12 Yemen 3,859 7.87 4,937 8.19 Corporate 104 - 92 - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 14,681 8.58 26,432 15.86 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Three Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s, except per Bbl amounts) $ $/Bbl $ $/Bbl ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Egypt 5,440 9.02 11,930 20.53 Yemen 1,845 7.87 2,436 8.28 Corporate 53 - 49 - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 7,338 8.76 14,415 16.47 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ In Egypt, DD&A decreased 56% on a per Bbl basis for both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010, due to significant increases to Proved reserves at year-end 2009. In Yemen, DD&A decreased 5% and 4% on a per Bbl basis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, due to Proved reserve additions at year-end 2009. In Egypt, unproven properties of $16.6 million (2009 - $9.7 million) relating to Nuqra ($8.1 million), West Gharib ($1.8 million) and East Ghazalat ($6.7 million) were excluded from the costs subject to DD&A in the quarter. In Yemen, unproven property costs of $11.8 million (2009 - $9.1 million) relating to Block 72 and Block 75 were excluded from the costs, subject to DD&A in the quarter. /T/ CAPITAL EXPENDITURES Six Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ($000s) 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Egypt 26,197 12,932 Yemen 1,662 4,316 Corporate 74 158 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total 27,933 17,406 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ In Egypt, total capital expenditures in the first six months of 2010 were $26.2 million (2009 - $12.9 million). The Company drilled 13 wells, resulting in 11 oil wells (three at Hana, two at Arta, one at each of Hana West, Hoshia, North Hoshia, East Arta, and two at East Ghazalat), in addition to two dry holes at East Ghazalat. In Yemen, total capital expenditures in 2010 were $1.7 million (2009 - $4.3 million). One oil development well was drilled in the first six months of 2010 at Block S-1. OUTSTANDING SHARE DATA As at June 30, 2010, the Company had 66,592,335 common shares issued and outstanding. The Company received regulatory approval to purchase, from time-to-time, as it considers advisable, up to 6,116,905 common shares under a Normal Course Issuer Bid which commenced September 7, 2009 and will terminate September 6, 2010. During the six months ended June 30, 2010 and during the year ended December 31, 2009, the Company did not repurchase any common shares. LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES Liquidity describes a company's ability to access cash. Companies operating in the upstream oil and gas industry require sufficient cash in order to fund capital programs necessary to maintain and increase production and reserves, to acquire strategic oil and gas assets and to repay debt. TransGlobe's capital programs are funded principally by cash provided from operating activities. A key measure that TransGlobe uses to evaluate the Company's overall financial strength is debt-to-funds flow from operating activities (calculated on a 12-month trailing basis). TransGlobe's debt-to-funds flow from operating activities ratio, a key short-term leverage measure, remained strong at 0.9 times at June 30, 2010. This was within the Company's target range of no more than 2.0 times. The following table illustrates TransGlobe's sources and uses of cash during the periods ended June 30, 2010 and 2009: /T/ Sources and Uses of Cash Six Months Ended June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ($000s) 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash sourced Funds flow from operations (1) 36,100 22,758 Exercise of options 5,744 80 Issuance of common shares, net of share issuance costs - 15,127 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 41,844 37,965 Cash used Capital expenditures 27,933 17,406 Deferred financing costs 699 - Repayment of long-term debt - 5,000 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 28,632 22,406 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Net cash from operations 13,212 15,559 Changes in non-cash working capital (7,952) 759 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Increase in cash and cash equivalents 5,260 16,318 Cash and cash equivalents - beginning of period 16,177 7,634 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash and cash equivalents - end of period 21,437 23,952 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Funds flow from operations is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash generated from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital. /T/ Funding for the Company's capital expenditures was provided by funds flow from operations. The Company expects to fund its 2010 exploration and development program of $71.0 million ($43.0 million remaining) and contractual commitments through the use of working capital and cash generated by operating activities. The use of new financing during 2010 may also be utilized to finance new opportunities. Fluctuations in commodity prices, product demand, foreign exchange rates, interest rates and various other risks may impact capital resources. Working capital is the amount by which current assets exceed current liabilities. At June 30, 2010, the Company had working capital of $51.9 million (December 31, 2009 - deficiency of $11.8 million). The working capital deficiency as at December 31, 2009 was primarily the result of the reclassification of long-term debt as a current liability. On July 22, 2010, the Company entered into a new Borrowing Base Facility. Therefore, as at June 30, 2010 the credit facility was classified as long-term which eliminated the working capital deficiency. While the reclassification of bank debt accounts for the majority of the increase in working capital, other increases to working capital in 2010 are the result of cash and cash equivalents increasing due to the collection of certain accounts receivable, and increased accounts receivable due to higher oil prices and higher sales volumes. These receivables are not considered to be impaired; however, to mitigate this risk, the Company entered into an insurance program on a portion of the receivable balance. At June 30, 2010, TransGlobe had a $60.0 million Revolving Credit Agreement of which $50.0 million was drawn. Amounts drawn under the Revolving Credit Agreement were set to become due September 25, 2010. Subsequent to June 30, 2010, the Company entered into a new five-year $100 million Borrowing Base Facility and paid out the original Revolving Credit Agreement. As repayments on the new Borrowing Base Facility are not expected to commence until 2012, the entire balance is presented as a long-term liability on the consolidated balance sheets. Repayments will be made on a semi-annual basis according to the scheduled reduction of the facility. As of June 30, 2010, the Company has incurred financing costs related to the new Borrowing Base Facility in the amount of $0.7 million. /T/ December 31, ($000s) June 30, 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Revolving Credit Agreement 50,000 53,000 Deferred financing costs (23) (201) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 49,977 49,799 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Current portion of long-term debt (net of deferred financing costs) - 49,799 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Long-term debt (net of deferred financing costs) 49,977 - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES As part of its normal business, the Company entered into arrangements and incurred obligations that will impact the Company's future operations and liquidity.

The Company completed drilling all three exploration wells during the six month period ended June 30, 2010. The Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has entered the first, 24-month extension period. The financial and work commitments for the extension period were met in the prior period. Pursuant to the Concession agreement for Nuqra Block 1 in Egypt, the Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has a minimum financial commitment of $5.0 million ($4.4 million to TransGlobe) and a work commitment for two exploration wells in the second exploration extension. The second, 36-month extension period commenced on July 18, 2009. The Contractor has met the second extension financial commitment of $5.0 million in the prior periods. At the request of the Government, the Company provided a $4.0 million production guarantee from the West Gharib Concession prior to entering the second extension period. Pursuant to the PSA for Block 72 in Yemen, the Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has a minimum financial commitment of $2.0 million ($0.1 million to TransGlobe) to drill one exploration well during the second exploration period. The second, 30-month exploration period commenced on January 12, 2009. The Contractor has accepted a farm-in proposal from TOTAL E&P Yemen. Subject to government approval, the Company will reduce its interest in the concession to 20%. Pursuant to the PSA for Block 75 in Yemen, the Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has a remaining minimum financial commitment of $3.0 million ($0.8 million to TransGlobe) for one exploration well. The first, 36-month exploration period commenced March 8, 2008. The Company issued a $1.5 million letter of credit (expiring November 15, 2011) to guarantee the Company's performance under the first exploration period. The letter is secured by a guarantee granted by Export Development Canada. Pursuant to the August 18, 2008 asset purchase agreement for a 25% financial interest in eight development leases on the West Gharib Concession in Egypt, the Company has committed to paying the vendor a success fee to a maximum of $7.0 million if incremental reserve thresholds are reached in the East Hoshia (up to $5.0 million) and South Rahmi (up to $2.0 million) development leases, to be evaluated annually. As at December 31, 2009, no additional fees are due in 2010. In the normal course of its operations, the Company may be subject to litigations and claims. Although it is not possible to estimate the extent of potential costs, if any, management believes that the ultimate resolution of such contingencies would not have a material adverse impact on the results of operations, financial position or liquidity of the Company. MANAGEMENT STRATEGY AND OUTLOOK FOR 2010 The 2010 outlook provides information as to management's expectation for results of operations for 2010. Readers are cautioned that the 2010 outlook may not be appropriate for other purposes. The Company's expected results are sensitive to fluctuations in the business environment and may vary accordingly. This outlook contains forward-looking statements that should be read in conjunction with the Company's disclosure under "Forward-Looking Statements", outlined on the first page of this MD&A. 2010 Outlook Highlights - Production is expected to average between 10,000 and 10,500 Bopd (mid-point: 10,250), a 14% increase over the 2009 average production; - Exploration and development capital budget increased to $71.0 million from $63.0 (allocated 84% to Egypt, 14% to Yemen and 2% to other) funded from funds flow from operations and cash on hand; and - Using the mid-point of production expectations and an average oil price assumption for the remainder of the year of $65.00/Bbl, funds flow from operations is expected to be $72.0 million for the year. 2010 Production Outlook TransGlobe's production guidance for 2010 is expected to average between 10,000 and 10,500 Bopd, representing a 14% increase over the 2009 average production of 8,980 Bopd. This target includes increased production from Hana, Hana West, Hoshia, Arta and East Arta in Egypt, and production from the development drilling program on Block S-1 in Yemen. Production from Egypt is expected to average approximately 7,550 Bopd during 2010, with the balance of approximately 2,700 Bopd coming from the Yemen properties. /T/ Production Forecast 2010 Guidance 2009 Actual % Change (1) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Barrels of oil per day 10,000 - 10,500 8,980 14 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) % growth based on mid-point of outlook. /T/ 2010 Funds Flow From Operations Outlook This outlook was developed using the above production forecast and an average Dated Brent oil price of $65.00/Bbl for the remainder of the year. /T/ 2010 Funds Flow From Operations Outlook ($ million, except % change) 2010 Guidance 2009 Actual % Change ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Funds flow from operations (1) 72.0 45.1 60 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Funds flow from operations is a non-GAAP measure that represents cash generated from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital. /T/ Due in part to higher expected prices and higher production, funds flow from operations is expected to increase by 60% in 2010. One of the key factors in the increased funds flow in 2010 is due to a better expected oil price differential to average Dated Brent benchmark price in Egypt. Price differentials to average Dated Brent in Egypt narrowed from 24% in 2009 to 10% in 2010. Variations in production and commodity prices during 2010 could significantly change this outlook. An increase in the Dated Brent oil price of $10.00/Bbl for the remainder of the year would increase anticipated funds flow by approximately $6.0 million to $78.0 million for the year, while a $10.00/Bbl decrease in the Dated Brent oil price would result in anticipated funds flow decreasing by approximately $4.0 million to $68.0 million for the year. /T/ 2010 Capital Budget Six Months Ended June 30, 2010 2010 ($ million) Actual Annual Budget ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Egypt 26.2 60.0 Yemen 1.7 10.0 Corporate 0.1 1.0 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total 28.0 71.0 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ The 2010 capital program is split 64:36 between development and exploration, respectively. The Company plans to participate in 42 wells in 2010. It is anticipated the Company will fund its entire 2010 capital budget from funds flow and working capital. The Company designed its 2010 budget to be flexible, allowing spending to be adjusted as commodity prices change and forecasts are reviewed. In Q2-2010, the Company increased its capital budget by $8.0 million with most of the increase coming in Egypt, which is partially offset by reduced spending in Yemen. The Company plans to increase its investment in Nuqra, East Ghazalat and West Gharib. CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES New Accounting Policies The Company adopted a share appreciation rights plan in March 2010. Under the share appreciation rights plan, all liabilities must be settled in cash and, consequently, are classified as liability instruments and measured at their intrinsic value less any unvested portion. Unvested share appreciation rights accrue evenly over the vesting period. The intrinsic value is determined as the difference between the market value of the Company's common shares and the exercise price of the share appreciation rights. This obligation is revalued each reporting period and the change in the obligation is recognized as stock-based compensation expense (recovery). New Accounting Standards a) Business Combinations In December 2008, the CICA issued Section 1582, Business Combinations, which will replace CICA Section 1581 of the same name. Section 1582 establishes principles and requirements of the acquisition method for business combinations and related disclosures. This statement applies prospectively to business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after January 2011 with earlier application permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this change on its Consolidated Financial Statements. b) Non-Controlling Interests In December 2008, the CICA issued Sections 1601, Consolidated Financial Statements, and 1602, Non-Controlling Interests. Section 1601 establishes standards for the preparation of consolidated financial statements. Section 1602 provides guidance on accounting for a non-controlling interest in a subsidiary in consolidated financial statements subsequent to a business combination. These standards are effective on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after January 2011 with earlier application permitted. These standards currently do not impact the Company as it has full controlling interest of all of its subsidiaries. c) International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") On February 13, 2008 the Canadian Accounting Standards Board confirmed that effective for interim and annual financial statements related to fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011, IFRS will replace Canada's current GAAP for all publicly accountable profit-oriented enterprises. The Company commenced its IFRS transition project in 2008 and has completed the project awareness and engagement phase of the IFRS transition project. Corporate governance over the project was established and a steering committee and project team formed. The steering committee is comprised of members of management and executive and is responsible for final approval of project recommendations and deliverables to the Audit Committee and Board of Directors. Communication, training and education are an important aspect of the Company's IFRS conversion project. Internal and external training and education sessions have been carried out and will continue throughout each phase of the project. The Company completed the diagnostic assessment phase by performing comparisons of the differences between Canadian GAAP and IFRS and is currently assessing the effects of adoption and finalizing its conversion plan. The Company determined that the most significant impact of IFRS conversion is to property and equipment. IFRS does not prescribe specific oil and gas accounting guidance other than for costs associated with the exploration and evaluation phase. The Company currently follows full cost accounting as prescribed in Accounting Guideline 16, Oil and Gas Accounting - Full Cost. Conversion to IFRS may have a significant impact on how the Company accounts for costs pertaining to oil and gas activities, in particular those related to the pre-exploration and development phases. In addition, the level at which impairment tests are performed and the impairment testing methodology will differ under IFRS. IFRS conversion will also result in other impacts, some of which may be significant in nature. The Company continues to focus on analyzing and developing implementation strategies and processes for the key IFRS transition issues identified. Where applicable, key IFRS transition alternatives are being considered and evaluated. The Company continues to perform preliminary accounting assessments on less critical IFRS transition issues and has commenced analysis of IFRS financial statement presentation and disclosure requirements. These assessments will need to be further analyzed and evaluated throughout the implementation phase of the Company's project. At this time, the impact on the Company's financial position and results of operations is not reliably determinable or estimable. In July 2009, the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") approved additional exemptions that will allow entities to allocate their oil and gas asset balance as determined under full cost accounting to the IFRS categories of exploration and evaluation assets and development and producing properties. Under the exemption, exploration and evaluation assets are measured at the amount determined under an entity's previous GAAP. For assets in the development or production phases, the amount is also measured at the amount determined under an entity's previous GAAP; however, such values must be allocated to the underlying IFRS transitional assets on a pro-rata basis using either reserve values or reserve volumes as of the entity's IFRS transition date. This exemption will relieve entities from significant adjustments resulting from retrospective adoption of IFRS. The Company intends to utilize this exemption. The Company is also evaluating other first-time adoption exemptions and elections available upon initial transition that provide relief from retrospective application of IFRS. Concurrently, the project team is working on the design, planning and solution development phase. In this phase, the focus is on determining the specific qualitative and quantitative impact the application of IFRS requirement has on the Company. The project team members continue to work with representatives from the various operational areas to develop recommendations including first-time adoption exemptions available upon initial transition to IFRS. The results from the consultations with the various operational areas are used to draft accounting policies. One of the sections in each of the draft accounting policies is the disclosure section which includes the financial statement disclosure as required by IFRS. First-time adoption exemptions were analyzed by the project team and a schedule is being drafted for the steering committee to review and evaluate the exemptions. A detailed implementation plan and timeline has been developed, which also includes the development of a training plan. Furthermore, in the second half of 2010 the Company will continue to work on the development of processes and systems to ensure that IFRS comparative data is captured, and to position it for reporting under IFRS in 2011. Additionally, the Company is monitoring the IASB's active projects and all changes to IFRS prior to January 1, 2011 and will be incorporated as required. INTERNAL CONTROLS OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING TransGlobe's management designed and implemented internal controls over financial reporting, as defined under National Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuers' Annual and Interim Filings, of the Canadian Securities Administrators. Internal controls over financial reporting is a process designed under the supervision of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer and effected by the Board of Directors, management and other personnel to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles, including a reconciliation to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, focusing in particular on controls over information contained in the annual and interim financial statements. Due to its inherent limitations, internal controls over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis. A system of internal controls over financial reporting, no matter how well conceived or operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the internal controls over financial reporting are met. Also, projections of any evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with policies or procedures may deteriorate. As at the date of this report, management is not aware of any change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting. /T/ CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss) and Retained Earnings (Unaudited - Expressed in thousands of U.S. Dollars, except per share amounts) Three Months Ended Six Months Ended June 30 June 30 2010 2009 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- REVENUE Oil sales, net of royalties and other $ 35,638 $ 26,462 $ 73,042 $ 45,522 Derivative gain (loss) on commodity contracts (Note 12) 311 (3,481) 289 (3,681) Other income 7 32 7 32 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 35,956 23,013 73,338 41,873 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- EXPENSES Operating 6,247 5,201 12,034 10,407 General and administrative 3,034 2,363 6,419 4,869 Foreign exchange loss (gain) 167 (958) 331 (654) Interest on long-term debt 518 722 1,003 1,329 Depletion and depreciation (Note 3) 7,338 14,415 14,681 26,432 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 17,304 21,743 34,468 42,383 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Income (loss) before income taxes 18,652 1,270 38,870 (510) Income taxes - current 9,214 5,631 17,834 8,805 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- NET INCOME (LOSS) 9,438 (4,361) 21,036 (9,315) Retained earnings, beginning of period 91,611 83,476 80,013 88,430 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- RETAINED EARNINGS, END OF PERIOD $ 101,049 $ 79,115 $101,049 $ 79,115 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Net income (loss) per share (Note 10) Basic $ 0.14 $ (0.07) $ 0.32 $ (0.15) Diluted $ 0.14 $ (0.07) $ 0.31 $ (0.15) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- See accompanying notes to the consolidated financial statements.

BASIS OF PRESENTATION The interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of TransGlobe Energy Corporation and its subsidiaries ("TransGlobe" or the "Company"), as at June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009 and for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, are presented in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles ("Canadian GAAP" or "Cdn. GAAP") on the same basis as the audited consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended December 31, 2009 except as outlined in Note 2. These interim consolidated financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required for annual financial statements. Accordingly, these interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto in TransGlobe's annual report for the year-ended December 31, 2009. In these interim consolidated financial statements, unless otherwise indicated, all dollars are in United States (U.S.) dollars. All references to US$ or to $ are to United States dollars and references to C$ are to Canadian dollars. 2. CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES New Accounting Policies The Company adopted a share appreciation rights plan in March 2010, which is described in Note 7. Under the share appreciation rights plan, all liabilities must be settled in cash and, consequently, are classified as liability instruments and measured at their intrinsic value less any unvested portion. Unvested share appreciation rights accrue evenly over the vesting period. The intrinsic value is determined as the difference between the market value of the Company's common shares and the exercise price of the share appreciation rights. This obligation is revalued each reporting period and the change in the obligation is recognized as stock-based compensation expense (recovery). 3. PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT The Company capitalized general and administrative costs relating to exploration and development activities during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 of $0.6 million and $1.0 million, respectively, in Egypt (2009 - $0.4 million and $1.2 million, respectively) and $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively, in Yemen (2009 - $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively). Unproven property costs for the three months ended June 30, 2010 in the amount of $16.6 million in Egypt (2009 - $9.7 million) and $11.8 million in Yemen (2009 - $9.1 million) were excluded from costs subject to depletion and depreciation. Future development costs for Proved reserves included in the depletion calculations for the three months ended June 30, 2010 totaled $2.1 million in Egypt (2009 - $1.9 million) and $11.5 million in Yemen (2009 - $11.0 million). /T/ 4. GOODWILL Changes in the carrying amount of the Company's goodwill, arising from acquisitions, are as follows: Six Months Ended Year Ended (000s) June 30, 2010 December 31, 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Balance, beginning of period $ 8,180 $ 8,180 Changes during the period - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Balance, end of period $ 8,180 $ 8,180 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5. LONG-TERM DEBT As at As at (000s) June 30, 2010 December 31, 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Revolving Credit Agreement $ 50,000 $ 50,000 Deferred financing costs (23) (201) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 49,977 49,799 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Current portion of long-term debt (net of deferred financing costs) - 49,799 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- $ 49,977 $ - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ As at June 30, 2010, the Company had a $60.0 million Revolving Credit Agreement of which $50.0 million was drawn. The Revolving Credit Agreement was set to expire on September 25, 2010 and was secured by a first floating charge debenture over all assets of the Company, a general assignment of book debts, security pledge of the Company's subsidiaries and certain covenants. The Revolving Credit Agreement bore interest at the Eurodollar Rate plus three percent. In the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, the average effective interest rate was 3.4% and 3.3% respectively (2009 - 4.6% and 4.4%, respectively). Subsequent to June 30, 2010, the Company entered into a new five-year $100.0 million Borrowing Base Facility and paid out the original Revolving Credit Agreement. The new Borrowing Base Facility is secured by a pledge over certain bank accounts, a pledge over the Company's subsidiaries, and a fixed and floating charge over certain assets. The new credit facility bears interest at the LIBOR rate plus an applicable margin, which ranges from 3.75% to 4.75% and is dependent on the amount drawn. As of June 30, 2010, the Company has incurred financing costs related to the new Borrowing Base Facility in the amount of $0.7 million. As repayments on the new Borrowing Base Facility are not expected to commence until 2012, the entire balance has been presented as a long-term liability on the consolidated balance sheets. Repayments will be made on a semi-annual basis in order to reduce the amount borrowed to an amount no greater than the Borrowing Base. The amount of the Borrowing Base may fluctuate over time and is determined principally by the net present value of borrowing base assets as defined in the Borrowing Base Facility Agreement over the term of the facility as well as pre-determined semi-annual reductions. Accordingly, for each balance sheet date, the timing of repayment is estimated based on the most recent redetermination of the Borrowing Base and repayment schedules may change in future periods. /T/ The estimated future debt payments on long-term debt, as of June 30, 2010, are as follows: (000s) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2010 - 2011 - 2012 $ 10,876 2013 18,681 2014 14,626 Thereafter 5,817 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6.

During the three and six month period ended June 30, 2010, the Company did not repurchase any common shares. During the year-ended December 31, 2009, the Company did not repurchase and cancel any common shares. 7. STOCK OPTION PLAN Stock option plan The Company adopted a stock option plan in May 2007 (the "Plan") and reapproved unallocated options issuable pursuant to the Plan in May 2010. The number of Common Shares that may be issued pursuant to the exercise of options awarded under the Plan and all other Security Based Compensation Arrangements of the Company is 10% of the common shares outstanding from time to time. All incentive stock options granted under the Plan have a per-share exercise price not less than the trading market value of the common shares at the date of grant. Stock options vest one-third on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the grant date. Options granted expire five years after the grant date. /T/ The following table summarizes information about the stock options outstanding and exercisable at the dates indicated: Six Months Ended Year Ended June 30, 2010 December 31, 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Weighted- Weighted- Average Average Number Exercise Number Exercise of Price of Price (000s, except per share amounts) Options (C$) Options (C$) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Options outstanding, beginning of period 5,478 4.12 5,600 4.20 Granted 1,220 6.78 815 3.45 Exercised (1,194) 4.95 (101) 2.92 Exercised for cash - - (80) 3.26 Forfeited (575) 4.04 (756) 3.91 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Options outstanding, end of period 4,929 4.59 5,478 4.12 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Options exercisable, end of period 1,503 4.54 2,335 4.72 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ Stock-based compensation Compensation expense of $0.5 million and $0.9 million has been recorded in general and administrative expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss) and Retained Earnings for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 (June 30, 2009 - $0.5 million and $1.0 million, respectively). The fair value of all common stock options granted is estimated on the date of grant using the lattice-based binomial option pricing model. The weighted-average fair value of options granted during 2010 and the assumptions used in their determination are as follows: /T/ 2010 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Weighted-average fair market value per option (C$) 2.86 Risk free interest rate (%) 2.77 Expected life (years) 5 Expected volatility (%) 48.43 Dividend per share 0.00 Expected forfeiture rate (non-executive employees) (%) 12 Early exercise (Year 1/Year 2/Year 3/Year 4/Year 5) 0%/10%/20%/30%/40% ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ Share appreciation rights plan In addition to the Company's stock option plan, the Company also issues share appreciation rights under the share appreciation rights plan, which was adopted in March 2010. Share appreciation rights are similar to stock options except that the holder does not have the right to purchase the underlying share of the Company and instead the units are settled in cash. Units granted under the share appreciation rights plan vest one-third on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the grant date. Share appreciation rights granted expire five years after the grant date. /T/ Six Months Ended June 30, 2010 ---------------------------- Weighted- Number Average of Exercise (000s, except per share amounts) Units Price (C$) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Outstanding, beginning of period - - Granted 150 6.61 Exercised - - Forfeited - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Outstanding, end of period 150 6.61 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Exercisable, end of period - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ The mark-to-market liability for the share appreciation rights plan as at June 30, 2010 was included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. /T/ 8. CONTRIBUTED SURPLUS Six Months Ended Year Ended (000s) June 30, 2010 December 31, 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Contributed surplus, beginning of period $ 6,691 $ 4,893 Stock-based compensation expense 881 2,011 Transfer to common shares on exercise of options (2,416) (213) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Contributed surplus, end of period $ 5,156 $ 6,691 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 9. ACCUMULATED OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME The balance of accumulated other comprehensive income consists of the following: Six Months Ended Year Ended (000s) June 30, 2010 December 31, 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Accumulated other comprehensive income, beginning of period $ 10,880 $ 10,880 Other comprehensive income - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Accumulated other comprehensive income, end of period $ 10,880 $ 10,880 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 10. PER SHARE AMOUNTS In calculating the net income (loss) per share, basic and diluted, the following weighted-average shares were used: Three Months Ended Six Months Ended June 30 June 30 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s) 2010 2009 2010 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Weighted-average number of shares outstanding 66,031 65,328 65,733 63,259 Dilutive effect of stock options 2,491 - 2,147 - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Weighted-average number of diluted shares outstanding 68,522 65,328 67,880 63,529 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ The treasury stock method assumes that the proceeds received from the exercise of "in-the-money" stock options are used to repurchase common shares at the average market price. In calculating the weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2010, the Company excluded 144,000 and 1,166,400 options, respectively, as their exercise price was greater than the average common share market price in this period. In calculating the weighted-average number of diluted common shares outstanding for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009, the Company excluded all stock options outstanding because there was a net loss in these periods. 11. CAPITAL DISCLOSURES The Company's objectives when managing capital are to ensure the Company will have the financial capacity, liquidity and flexibility to fund the ongoing exploration and development of its oil and gas assets. The Company relies on cash flow to fund its capital investments. However, due to long lead cycles of some of its developments and corporate acquisitions, the Company's capital requirements may exceed its cash flow generated in any one period. This requires the Company to maintain financial flexibility and liquidity. The Company sets the amount of capital in proportion to risk and manages to ensure that the total of the long-term debt is not greater than two times the Company's funds flow from operations for the trailing twelve months. For the purposes of measuring the Company's ability to meet the above-stated criteria, funds flow from operations is defined as the net income or loss before any deduction for depletion, depreciation and accretion, amortization of deferred financing charges, non-cash stock-based compensation, and non-cash derivative (gain) loss on commodity contracts. Funds flow from operations is a non-GAAP measure and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. /T/ The Company defines and computes its capital as follows: As at As at (000s) June 30, 2010 December 31, 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Shareholders' equity $ 191,351 $ 163,690 Long-term debt, including the current portion (net of unamortized transaction costs) 49,977 49,799 Cash and cash equivalents (21,437) (16,177) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total capital $ 219,891 $ 197,312 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Company's debt-to-funds flow ratio is computed as follows: 12 Months Trailing ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (000s) June 30, 2010 December 31, 2009 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Long-term debt, including the current portion (net of unamortized transaction costs) $ 49,977 $ 49,799 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cash flow from operating activities $ 33,739 $ 36,799 Changes in non-cash working capital 24,667 8,265 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Funds flow from operations $ 58,406 $ 45,064 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ratio 0.9 1.1 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ The Company's financial objectives and strategy as described above have remained substantially unchanged over the last two completed fiscal years. These objectives and strategy are reviewed on an annual basis. The Company believes that its ratios are within reasonable limits, in light of the relative size of the Company and its capital management objectives. The Company is also subject to financial covenants in the Revolving Credit Agreement that existed as at June 30, 2010. The key financial covenants are as follows: - Interest coverage ratio of greater than 3.5 to 1.0, calculated as EBITDAX to interest expense, for the immediately preceding four consecutive fiscal quarters. For the purposes of the financial covenant calculations, EBITDAX shall mean Consolidated Net Income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, and accretion, unrealized derivative losses on commodity contracts and stock based compensation expense. - Indebtedness to EBITDAX is less than 2.0 to 1.0. For the purposes of the financial covenant calculation, indebtedness shall mean the balance of the Revolving Credit Facility, letters of credit and any amounts payable in connection with a realized derivative loss. - Current ratio (current assets to current liabilities, excluding the current portion of long-term debt) of greater than 1.0 to 1.0. The Company is in compliance with all financial covenants at June 30, 2010. The new Borrowing Base Facility entered into subsequent to June 30, 2010 (see Note 5) will also subject the Company to certain financial covenants. The key financial covenants on the new Borrowing Base Facility are as follows: - Consolidated Financial Indebtedness to EBITDAX will not exceed 3.0 to 1.0. For the purposes of this calculation, Consolidated Financial Indebtedness shall mean the aggregate of all Financial Indebtedness of the Company. EBITDAX shall be defined as Consolidated Net Income before interest, income taxes, depreciation, depletion, amortization, accretion of abandonment liability, unrealized hedging losses and other similar non-cash charges (including expenses related to stock options), minus unrealized hedging gains and all non-cash income added to Consolidated Net Income. - Current ratio (current assets to current liabilities, excluding the current portion of long-term debt) of greater than 1.0 to 1.0. 12. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND RISK MANAGEMENT Carrying Values and Estimated Fair Values of Financial Assets and Liabilities The Company has classified its cash and cash equivalents as assets held for trading and its derivative commodity contracts as financial assets or liabilities held for trading, which are both measured at fair value with changes being recognized in net income. Accounts receivable are classified as loans and receivables; accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and long-term debt are classified as other liabilities, all of which are measured at amortized cost. Carrying value and fair value of financial assets and liabilities are summarized as follows: /T/ (000s) June 30, 2010 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Classification Carrying Value Fair Value ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Financial assets held-for-trading $ 21,630 $ 21,630 Loans and receivables 50,167 50,167 Other liabilities 71,994 72,017 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ Assets and liabilities at June 30, 2010 that are measured at fair value are classified into levels reflecting the method used to make the measurements. Fair values of assets and liabilities included in Level 1 are determined by reference to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities. Assets and liabilities in Level 2 include valuations using inputs other than quoted prices for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly. Level 3 valuations are based on inputs that are unobservable and significant to the overall fair value measurement. The Company's cash and cash equivalents and risk management contracts are assessed on the fair value hierarchy described above. TransGlobe's cash and cash equivalents are classified as Level 1 and risk management contracts as Level 2. Assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement requires judgment and may affect the placement within the fair value hierarchy level. Credit Risk Credit risk is the risk of loss if the counter parties do not fulfill their contractual obligations. The Company's exposure to credit risk primarily relates to accounts receivable, the majority of which are in respect of oil operations, and derivative commodity contracts. The Company generally extends unsecured credit to these parties and therefore the collection of these amounts may be affected by changes in economic or other conditions. Management believes the risk is mitigated by the size and reputation of the companies to which they extend credit and an insurance program on a portion of the receivable balance. The Company has not experienced any material credit loss in the collection of accounts receivable to date. Trade and other receivables are analyzed in the table below. With respect to the trade and other receivables that are not impaired and past due, there are no indications as of the reporting date that the debtors will not meet their payment obligations. /T/ (000s) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trade and other receivables at June 30, 2010 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Neither impaired nor past due $ 19,301 Impaired (net of valuation allowance) - Not impaired and past due in the following period: Within 30 days 7,629 31-60 days 7,258 61-90 days 6,598 Over 90 days 9,381 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ In Egypt, the Company sold all of its 2010 production to one purchaser. In Yemen, the Company sold all of its 2010 Block 32 production to one purchaser and all of its 2010 Block S-1 production to one purchaser. Management considers such transactions normal for the Company and the international oil industry in which it operates. Market Risk Market risk is the risk or uncertainty arising from possible market price movements and their impact on the future performance of a business. The market price movements that the Company is exposed to include oil prices (commodity price risk), foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates, all of which could adversely affect the value of the Company's financial assets, liabilities and financial results. a) Commodity Price Risk The Company's operational results and financial condition are partially dependent on the commodity prices received for its oil production. Commodity prices have fluctuated significantly during recent years. Any movement in commodity prices would have an effect on the Company's financial condition. Therefore, the Company has entered into various financial derivative contracts to manage fluctuations in commodity prices in the normal course of operations. The following contracts are outstanding at June 30, 2010: /T/ Dated Brent Pricing Period Volume Type Put-Call ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Crude Oil ---------- July 1, 2010-August 31, 2010 12,000 Bbls/month Financial $60.00-$84.25 Collar July 1, 2010-August 31, 2010 9,000 Bbls/month Financial $40.00-$80.00 Collar July 1, 2010-December 31, 2010 10,000 Bbls/month Financial $60.00 Floor July 1, 2010-December 31, 2010 20,000 Bbls/month Financial $65.00 Floor ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ The estimated fair value of unrealized commodity contracts is reported on the Consolidated Balance Sheet, with any change in the unrealized positions recorded to income. The Company assessed these instruments on the fair value hierarchy and has classified the determination of fair value of these instruments as Level 2, as the fair values of these transactions are based on an approximation of the amounts that would have been paid to, or received from, counter-parties to settle the transactions outstanding as at the Consolidated Balance Sheet date with reference to forward prices and market values provided by independent sources. The actual amounts realized may differ from these estimates. When assessing the potential impact of commodity price changes on its financial derivative commodity contracts, the Company believes 10% volatility is a reasonable measure. The effect of a 10% increase in commodity prices on the derivative commodity contracts would decrease the net income by $0.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010. The effect of a 10% decrease in commodity prices on the derivative commodity contracts would increase the net income, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, by $0.3 million. Subsequent to June 30, 2010, TransGlobe bought out both financial collar derivative commodity contracts. Immediately subsequent to the buy-out, the following commodity contracts are outstanding: /T/ Dated Brent Pricing Period Volume Type Put-Call ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Crude Oil ---------- July 1, 2010-December 31, 2010 10,000 Bbls/month Financial $60.00 Floor July 1, 2010-December 31, 2010 20,000 Bbls/month Financial $65.00 Floor ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- /T/ b) Foreign Currency Exchange Risk As the Company's business is conducted primarily in U.S. dollars and its financial instruments are primarily denominated in U.S. dollars, the Company's exposure to foreign currency exchange risk relates to certain cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities denominated in Canadian dollars. When assessing the potential impact of foreign currency exchange risk, the Company believes 10% volatility is a reasonable measure. The Company estimates that a 10% increase in the value of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar would result in an increase in the net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 of approximately $0.3 million and conversely a 10% decrease in the value of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar would decrease the net income by said amount for the same periods. The Company does not utilize derivative instruments to manage this risk. c) Interest Rate Risk Fluctuations in interest rates could result in a significant change in the amount the Company pays to service variable-interest, U.S.-dollar-denominated debt. No derivative contracts were entered into during 2010 to mitigate this risk. When assessing interest rate risk applicable to the Company's variable-interest, U.S.-dollar-denominated debt the Company believes 1% volatility is a reasonable measure. The effect of interest rates increasing by 1% would decrease the Company's net income, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, by $0.1 million and $0.3 million, respectively. The effect of interest rates decreasing by 1% would increase the Company's net income, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, by $0.1 million and $0.3 million, respectively. Liquidity Risk Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they become due. Liquidity describes a company's ability to access cash. Companies operating in the upstream oil and gas industry require sufficient cash in order to fund capital programs necessary to maintain and increase production and Proved reserves, to acquire strategic oil and gas assets and to repay debt. The Company actively maintains credit facilities to ensure it has sufficient available funds to meet current and foreseeable financial requirements at a reasonable cost. The following are the contractual maturities of financial liabilities at June 30, 2010: /T/ (000s) Payment Due by Period(1,2) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recognized Less More in Financial Contractual than 1-3 4-5 than Statements Cash Flows 1 year years years 5 years ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Accounts payable and accrued liabilities Yes-Liability $ 22,017 $22,017 $ - $ - $ - Long-term debt: Borrowing Base Facility Yes-Liability 50,000 - 29,557 20,443 - Office and equipment leases No 10,954 1,509 2,880 1,872 4,693 Minimum work commitments(3) No 7,876 2,923 4,953 - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total $ 90,847 $26,449 $37,390 $22,315 $ 4,693 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- (1) Payments exclude ongoing operating costs related to certain leases, interest on long-term debt and payments made to settle derivatives. (2) Payments denominated in foreign currencies have been translated at June 30, 2010 exchange rates. (3) Minimum work commitments include contracts awarded for capital projects and those commitments related to exploration and drilling obligations. /T/ The Company actively monitors its liquidity to ensure that its cash flows, credit facilities and working capital are adequate to support these financial liabilities, in addition to the Company's capital programs. The existing banking arrangement at June 30, 2010 consists of a Revolving Credit Facility of $60.0 million of which $50.0 million was drawn. Subsequent to June 30, 2010, the Company entered into a new five-year $100.0 million Borrowing Base Facility and paid out the existing credit facility (see Note 5). 13. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES The Company is subject to certain office and equipment leases (Note 12). TransGlobe entered into a farm-out agreement and committed to pay 100% of three exploration wells to a maximum of $9.0 million to earn a 50% working interest in the East Ghazalat Concession in the Western Desert of Egypt, subject to the approval of the Egyptian Government. The Company completed drilling all three exploration wells during the six month period ended June 30, 2010. The Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has entered the first, 24-month extension period. These financial and work commitments for the extension period were met in the prior period. Pursuant to the Concession agreement for Nuqra Block 1 in Egypt, the Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has a minimum financial commitment of $5.0 million ($4.4 million to TransGlobe) and a work commitment for two exploration wells in the second exploration extension. The second, 36-month extension period commenced on July 18, 2009. The Contractor has met the second extension financial commitment of $5.0 million in the prior periods. At the request of the Government, the Company provided a $4.0 million production guarantee from the West Gharib Concession prior to entering the second extension period. Pursuant to the PSA for Block 72 in Yemen, the Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has a minimum financial commitment of $2.0 million ($0.1 million to TransGlobe) to drill one exploration well during the second exploration period. The second, 30-month exploration period commenced on January 12, 2009. The Contractor has accepted a farm-in proposal from TOTAL E&P Yemen. Subject to government approval, the Company will reduce its interest in the concession to 20%. Pursuant to the PSA for Block 75 in Yemen, the Contractor (Joint Venture Partners) has a remaining minimum financial commitment of $3.0 million ($0.8 million to TransGlobe) for one exploration well. The first, 36-month exploration period commenced March 8, 2008. The Company issued a $1.5 million letter of credit (expiring November 15, 2011) to guarantee the Company's performance under the first exploration period. The letter is secured by a guarantee granted by Export Development Canada. Pursuant to the August 18, 2008 asset purchase agreement for a 25% financial interest in eight development leases on the West Gharib Concession in Egypt, the Company has committed to paying the vendor a success fee to a maximum of $7.0 million if incremental reserve thresholds are reached in the East Hoshia (up to $5.0 million) and South Rahmi (up to $2.0 million) development leases, to be evaluated annually. As at December 31, 2009, no additional fees are due in 2010. In the normal course of its operations, the Company may be subject to litigations and claims.

Such statements relate to possible future events. All statements other than statements of historical fact may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "seek", "anticipate", "plan", "continue", "estimate", "expect", "may", "will", "project", "predict", "potential", "targeting", "intend", "could", "might", "should", "believe" and similar expressions. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. Although TransGlobe's forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs, expectations, opinions and assumptions of the Company's management on the date the statements are made, such statements are inherently uncertain and provide no guarantee of future performance. Actual results may differ materially from TransGlobe's expectations as reflected in such forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, many of which are beyond the control of the Company. These factors include, but are not limited to, unforeseen changes in the rate of production from TransGlobe's oil and gas properties, changes in price of crude oil and natural gas, adverse technical factors associated with exploration, development, production or transportation of TransGlobe's crude oil and natural gas reserves, changes or disruptions in the political or fiscal regimes in TransGlobe's areas of activity, changes in tax, energy or other laws or regulations, changes in significant capital expenditures, delays or disruptions in production due to shortages of skilled manpower, equipment or materials, economic fluctuations, and other factors beyond the Company's control. TransGlobe does not assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements if circumstances or management's beliefs, expectations or opinions should change, other than as required by law, and investors should not attribute undue certainty to, or place undue reliance on, any forward-looking statements. Please consult TransGlobe's public filings at www.sedar.com and www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml for further, more detailed information concerning these matters.
