Cougar Oil and Gas Canada, Inc. Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2011) - Cougar Oil and Gas Canada, Inc. (OTCBB:COUGF) ("Cougar" "the Company") is pleased to announce that Rainbow Pipeline recommenced operations on Tuesday, August 30, 2011.

This pipeline is the delivery point for our Trout oil contracts. Since April 28 2011, when the pipeline was shut down due to a line break, it has been necessary to truck our oil to several alternative delivery points, when possible, as weather and capacity restraints at the delivery points curtailed those shipments which were at a discount to the contract price and at a substantial extra cost due to the trucking charges.

We will return to normal operations in September and commence shipping into our contract terminal point starting this weekend, which will result in revenues returning to more normal levels in October.

William Tighe, CEO of Cougar provided "It was a difficult summer with little news to announce until the pipeline was restarted, and we could confidently make plans based on that happening. The projected pipeline restart was delayed often through the summer and was not official until August 26, 2011.

Now that operations can be returned to pre pipeline break levels, we are finalizing the funding for the drilling program. We are also pleased with the recent additional lands acquired based on the seismic and feel that they will add to our prospects.

The drilling program is ready to move forward as soon as financing is sourced. Our previously released engineering report identifies that this project has the potential to add significant revenue, estimated cash flow with pay outs on the capital program in the 130 day range, and substantially increase proven reserves once the wells have been producing for 6 months, while continuing toward our goal of attaining 2000 bbl/d production from operations."
