Upstream Article Describes Upcoming Kuwait Soil Remediation Contracts and Highlights CORRE

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 17, 2011) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR)(OTCQX:CRVYF) ("CORRE" or the "Company") reports that Upstream, a leading international oil & gas publication, published in its January 14th weekly edition that the Kuwait Oil Company ("KOC") will issue its first set of tenders for about $200 million of soil remediation work later this month or in early February. These tenders will be followed later this year by even bigger soil remediation and oil recovery contracts for the clean-up of the Kuwait Oil Lakes left by Saddam Hussein's army in 1991. According to industry sources noted in the article, these contracts "will involve the biggest clean-up operation in the world to put right the damage caused when retreating Iraqi troops torched Kuwait's oilfields." The article notes that the massive clean-up of the Kuwait Oil Lakes would cost about $3.5 billion, funded out of the United Nations war reparation funds, and entails decades of work.

The article further highlights that CORRE, through its SAR-CORRE MENA ("SCM") operating partnership, has taken a head start by building a pilot plant in Kuwait. The pilot plant, using CORRE's proprietary ARES I soil washing and oil recovery technology, has a capacity of 15 tonnes per hour, expandable to 40 tonnes per hour. Through SAR AS, SCM is a pre-qualified and approved contractor to KOC for contracts relating to soil remediation, waste management and drill cuttings.
