NAL Energy Corporation Announces Safe End to Facility Fire in Saskatchewan

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2011) - NAL Energy Corporation ("NAL" or the "Corporation") (TSX:NAE) has successfully extinguished a fire at one of its facilities in Saskatchewan located approximately 90 kilometres northeast of Estevan without injury.

At approximately 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, August 30, 2011, firefighting crews were successful in extinguishing the fire and damage was limited to the Star Valley oil battery operated by NAL. The cause of the fire has not been verified but it is suspected to have been the result of a lightning strike from a storm in the area the prior evening.

Management appreciates the cooperation of our neighbors and support of regulatory authorities during this emergency response and would also like to thank everyone involved, especially our field personnel for their efforts.

NAL will conduct a formal investigation of this incident and no estimate of the damage is available at this time. Until operations are restored at the facility, the Corporation's oil production volumes will be impacted by approximately 300 barrels per day (approximately one percent).
