CORRE Appoints BDO Canada LLP as Auditor

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 20, 2011) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR)(OTCQX:CRVYF) ("CORRE" or the "Company") is pleased to report that effective December 15, 2011 the Company has changed its auditor from McGovern, Hurley, Cunningham, LLP to BDO Canada LLP ("BDO"). CORRE's audit committee and board of directors have approved the change in auditor.

"Over the past year, CORRE has advanced from optimizing its full-scale soil remediation and oil recovery ARES I pilot program in Kuwait to now actively bidding for large scale remediation contracts and developing the platform for other oil service operations in Saudi Arabia with our largest shareholder. We are confident with our top tier operating partnership with Norway-based SAR AS. We look forward to working with BDO, which we believe has the necessary depth and experience for the anticipated execution of our international oil service operations and more specifically so in our dealings with mega-national oil companies in the Arabian Gulf region," commented John Lorenzo, CORRE's Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board.

There were no reservations in the former auditor's reports in connection with the two most recently completed fiscal years or for any period subsequent to the most recently completed period for which an audit report was issued. There were also no reportable events between CORRE and the former auditor or the successor auditor including disagreements, unresolved issues or consultations as defined in National Instrument 51-102, continuous disclosure.

All procedures have been properly followed under NI 51-102 regarding the change of auditor and, as required, a notice of change of auditor together with the required letters from the former auditor and the successor auditor are filed via SEDAR with each securities commission in each province or territory in Canada in which CORRE is a reporting issuer.

CORRE would like to thank McGovern, Hurley, Cunningham, LLP for their professional contribution during its engagement.
