North American Energy Partners Incorrectly Attributed in News Headline

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 28, 2009) - A news release distributed July 27, 2009 by a US oil and gas development company with a similar name was mistakenly attributed to North American Energy Partners ("NAEP" or "the Company") (TSX:NOA)(NYSE:NOA) on several financial news websites.

"The headline incorrectly identified our company as having entered into a letter of intent to acquire a l20-acre leasehold and well interest in the US," said Kevin Rowand, Director Strategic Planning and Investor Relations of North American Energy Partners. "I want to clarify that we are in no way connected to this transaction or the companies involved, and we are currently working to contact these websites and correct this error."
