CORRE Provides Update on Financing

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) - Canadian Oil Recovery & Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR) ("CORRE" or the "Company") announces that the May 16th deadline for the approval of CORRE's five-year business and financial plan (the "Business and Financial Plan") by Al-Najah Advanced Technology Co. Ltd. ("NAT") has been extended, at the request of NAT, to June 16, 2010.

As previously announced, NAT has provided CORRE with a $4.25 million convertible secured debenture ("Convertible Secured Debenture"), of which $1.4 million was released to CORRE on November 16, 2010. On March 16th, as agreed, CORRE submitted to NAT the Company's Business and Financial Plan for their review. If NAT accepts CORRE's Business and Financial Plan, the remaining balance of the Convertible Secured Debenture of $2.85 million will be immediately released to CORRE from escrow and the full $4.25 million Convertible Secured Debenture will be simultaneously converted into common shares of CORRE at $0.20 per share. Following that conversion, NAT will be eligible to exercise, at its option for one year, up to an additional $4.25 million of CORRE common share purchase warrants at $0.20 per share.

Should NAT not approve the Business and Financial Plan, the $2.85 million that is currently in escrow will be returned to NAT as partial repayment of the Convertible Secured Debenture. NAT is continuing to review CORRE's Business and Financial Plan and additional information that has been provided by CORRE to NAT at NAT's request. Accordingly, NAT has requested an extension of the Business and Financial Plan acceptance date to June 16, 2010 and CORRE has consented to this request.

For further details concerning the financing and all related matters and ancillary agreements, please refer to our press releases date June 16, July 16, August 14, October 7 and November 17, 2009.
