Enterprise Announces Terms of Previously Announced Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2011) -

(NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO THE UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES)

Enterprise Energy Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:EER) is pleased to announce that it has settled the terms of its previously announced private placement financing. The Company has arranged a non-brokered private placement of up to 16,666,666 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $0.30 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $5,000,000. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole such warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to purchase an additional common share at a price of $0.45 for a period of 24 months from the closing date.

Closing of the private placement is anticipated to occur on or before February 14, 2011 and is subject to regulatory approval. Securities issued under the financing will be subject to a four month hold period beginning upon their issuance.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used to fund the investment by the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, EERL Energy Limited Partnership, in Chimney Sweep Oil and Gas (US) L.L.L.P.

Separately, the Company advises that it has been named as one of more than 30 defendants in a legal proceeding initiated in Ontario by Teskey Construction Co. Ltd. and others. The legal proceeding relates to an explosion at a propane facility in Toronto in 2008. The claim alleges that Ontario Hose Specialities Ltd. ("OHSL") manufactured certain hoses used in the propane facility, and that the Company may be a successor to OHSL. Until 2006 OHSL was the operating subsidiary of the Company and in 2006 the Company disposed of all of the shares of OHSL. The Company believes the claim against the Company is without merit and as the Company is not a successor to OHSL, it appears that the wrong defendant has been named. The Company is reviewing the steps available to have itself removed as soon as possible as a defendant in the claim.
