VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2009) - Odyssey Petroleum Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ODE)(FRANKFURT:YQN) (the "Company" or "ODE") announces that the B.C. Securities Commission issued a Cease Trade Order against the Company on November 18, 2009 for ODE's failure to SEDAR file annual oil and gas forms as prescribed by National Instrument 51-101 Standard of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities ("NI 51-101") for the year ended December 31, 2008 within the time required. The TSX Venture Exchange subsequently suspended trading in the Company's securities as a result of the Cease Trade Order.
