CORRE Announces Delayed Q2 Financial Results Due to Pending Project Accounting on Jordan Contract

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 27, 2012) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR)(OTCQX:CRVYF) ("CORRE" or the "Company") announces that it does not anticipate filing its financial statements and corresponding management discussion and analysis for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 (the "Financial Statements") on or before the prescribed filing deadline pursuant to National Instrument 51-102, being August 29, 2012. The Company received material revenues for the first time during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 pursuant to the BP PLC contract with CORRE's operating partner, SAR AS ("SAR") with respect to the cleaning and treatment of drill cuttings for BP PLC in Jordan (for details concerning this contract, see CORRE's press release dated February 1, 2012). SAR is responsible for the accounting of the SAR-CORRE MENA ("SCM") partnership, as well as the project accounting under the foregoing contract. As SAR recently completed a major buy-out transaction, whereby it was purchased by Stirling Square Capital Partners out of London and new financial personnel have been employed by SAR, complete and accurate financial information is not expected to be available to CORRE in order for CORRE to accurately complete the Financial Statements prior to the filing deadline. In light of the foregoing, CORRE has made application to the applicable securities commissions for the imposition of a Management Cease Trade Order, rather than an Issuer Cease Trade Order, as contemplated under National Policy 12-203.

Management of the Company will be meeting with SAR early September 2012 in Norway to discuss the project accounting (including the allocation of certain costs among the parties) and anticipates filing the Financial Statements within 30 days of the filing deadline. Further, CORRE intends to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines of National Policy 12-203 for so long as the default remains in effect.
