Petroflow Energy Ltd. Reports Intention to Undertake a Normal Course Issuer Bid.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Petroflow Energy Ltd. Reports that it intends to conduct a normal course issuer bid to purchase for cancellation up to the greater of 500,000 common shares, or 5% of its issued and outstanding share capital. Petroflow plans to fund its share purchases under the bid with cash flow and available financing under its bank loan. The normal course issuer bid will be conducted through the facilities of the TSX Venture Exchange. The share repurchase is being launched because management is of the view that the purchase of its common shares will help create value for the Company's shareholders.

It is expected that the normal course issuer bid will commence on December 22, 2008 and may continue for up to one year. Purchases will be made through Leede Financial Markets Inc. The Company has not previously repurchased any of its common shares in a normal course issuer bid.

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Petroflow Energy Ltd.

Mr. John Melton

President & CEO
