International PetroReal Oil Corporation Augments Income, Value With Management Agreement & Offer to Purchase Water Disposal Operation

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2007) - International PetroReal Oil Corporation, Calgary, ("PetroReal" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:IPO) announces that it has entered into an agreement with a private Calgary-based company ("Privco") to manage Privco's water disposal operation ("the Operation") located in southeastern Alberta until July 1, 2008. Under the agreement, PetroReal will also have the option to purchase Privco's one hundred percent ownership in the Operation at any time up to the same date.

As a result of the transaction, PetroReal will immediately realize a gain in operating income of approximately $50,000.00 per month, increasing total operating income for the Company to approximately $200,000.00 per month. As well, PetroReal will be entitled to all outstanding accounts receivable, estimated to be approximately $400,000.00. PetroReal believes that net operating income derived from the Operation can be doubled at minimal cost through optimization, efficiency improvements and marketing.

In consideration, PetroReal will pay off all outstanding indebtedness against the Operation, estimated to be approximately $350,000.00. If PetroReal exercises its option to purchase, it will issue to Privco 2,500,000 million PetroReal common shares at a deemed value of $1.00 per share.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals.

Overview of the Operation

The Operation is a single well water processing and disposal facility centralized in a high concentration of shallow gas wells in southeast Alberta. The Operation injects an average of two thousand cubic meters of water per day while having the capability to nearly double that capacity. As most wells in the region experience increased water volumes as gas production matures, PetroReal recognizes that the Operation will become more integral to producers. The Company recognizes that numerous wells in close proximity to the Operation remain shut in due to excessive water volumes and believes that new business can be attracted from producers that are not yet customers. Additionally, PetroReal has identified the potential opportunity to acquire and reactivate other shut in gas reserves and productive capability currently deemed uneconomic due to excessive water volumes.

Mark Hlady, President and C.E.O. of PetroReal, comments, "This transaction allows us to assess an opportunity that has the short term ability to positively impact Company income with minimal exposure, while having the long term potential to diversify income streams and create a new area of activity, on attractive terms. We firmly believe that this business can be the cornerstone for PetroReal's evolving expansion into southern Alberta exploration, production and operations."
