Canadian Superior Energy Inc. Announces Toronto Stock Exchange Listing Requirements Satisfied and Increase in Bank Facility to $40 Million

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2009) - Canadian Superior Energy Inc. ("Canadian Superior" or the "Company") (TSX:SNG) (NYSE Amex:SNG) announced today that the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") has completed its review of the common shares of the Company and has determined that the Company meets TSX's original listing requirements.

In addition, the Company announced that its current lender, the National Bank of Canada, has approved an increase in the Company's credit facility from $25 million to $40 million. The credit facility is subject to the next scheduled review in April 2010.
