Parkland Energy Services Inc.- Announces the Full Revocation of Cease Trade Order

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 24, 2012) - The cease trade orders issued against Parkland Energy Services Inc. ("Parkland") (TSX VENTURE:PKE) by the Alberta and British Columbia Securities Commissions were fully revoked on July 20th and 23rd, 2012 respectively. The cease trade orders were imposed due to the company having failed to file its continuous disclosure documents for the year ended December 31, 2011 and interim period March 31, 2012 on a timely basis. The TSX Venture is currently undertaking a review and reinstatement, after which it is anticipated the company's shares will resume trading.

Parkland Energy Services Inc. had a Cease Trade Order issued May 3, 2012 due to the delay in the release of the 2011 Annual Audited Financial Statements for the financial year ended December 31, 2011, the management's discussion and analysis relating thereto and the certificates of the Corporation's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (collectively referred to as the "2011 Annual Financial Statements and MD&A"), in accordance with National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations and National Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuer's Annual and Interim Filings.

Parkland has no future plans at this time other to continue to reassess operations and determine the best course of action to take to increase profitability and performance. Parkland has taken great measures to address the issues which lead to the delay on the auditors' release of the 2011 audited annual financial statements and is confident that these issues will not cause delay in subsequent years.

Parkland is a company based in Red Deer, Alberta that currently has an industrial paint and sandblasting operation. The Common shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and trade under the symbol "PKE".

TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
