CORRE and EcoTecnos Meet With Kuwait Oil Company to Review Pilot Project of Geo-Sensing Satellite Detection Service, Receives Further Mandate

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 26, 2013) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR) ("CORRE" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that CORRE and EcoTecnos had several meetings last week with the Kuwait Oil Company ("KOC") officers responsible for the satellite detection pilot project to review and discuss the finer technical details of its previously announced satellite detection report submitted to KOC. The report clearly demonstrated the capabilities of the EcoTecnos satellite detection technology and service in identifying, locating and quantifying the various types of oily sludge (light, intermediate and heavy) and oil-contaminated soil contained in a pit as well as providing 2D images of the studied pit or oil lake. This information provides KOC a much better understanding of the scope and depth of the types, nature and quantities of the contaminants in any sludge pit or oil lake targeted for treatment and clean-up.

EcoTecnos showcased the results of the pilot project to KOC, presenting the project details, their technology, technical aspects and results of the studied pit that has been designated by KOC. After several meetings during the week, KOC decided to extend the pilot project for a period of 2 months and requested that the pilot project take a second phase whereby: (1) EcoTecnos will identify and quantify new samples of crude oil and contaminated soil given by KOC to EcoTecnos; and, (2) map out certain underground pipelines in the vicinity of the initial pilot project site, indicating the location and depth of these pipelines. The successful completion of this second phase can lead to a second high value contract to map the underground pipelines across Kuwait.

CORRE has exclusive marketing rights to deploy EcoTecnos' technology within the Middle East, North Africa, the United States of America and Canada. EcoTecnos' advanced technology has the potential to modernize the method KOC presently uses to tender remediation contracts. EcoTecnos' satellite detection technology will provide more precise information in tender documents about the contaminated area, pit or oil lake. Such information, assisted with 2-D images, will further assist in the preparation of tender documents that contain more defined and precise scope of oily sludge treatment and soil remediation work for the bidders. Furthermore, such thorough understanding of the scope of an oily sludge treatment and soil remediation project will support price optimization and afford bidders better preparation to execute contracts efficiently and economically.

"We are excited with the results of the meetings with KOC concerning the EcoTecnos satellite detection pilot project. The prospect of multiple high value contracts is now closer to reality with this expansion of the satellite pilot project to include the mapping of pipelines," commented John Lorenzo, CORRE's CEO, who concluded by saying: "Both CORRE and EcoTecnos are very pleased with the results and progress of our pilot project with KOC and with our ability to demonstrate the versatile uses of our satellite detection technology."
