TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 18, 2011) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR)(OTCQX:CRVYF) ("CORRE" or the "Company") is providing an update on the Company's bidding progress for three soil remediation and oil recovery projects with a total expected value of $210 million tendered by the Kuwait Oil Company ("KOC") during early April 2011. CORRE is bidding through its SAR-CORRE MENA ("SCM") operating partnership established with SAR AS, a leading Norwegian oil waste management operating company.

The Company is pleased to report that, per the requirements of the tender, it has completed its portion of the financial arrangements with the National Bank of Kuwait to issue three bid bonds for each of the tendered contracts for a total value of $4.5 million in equivalent Kuwaiti Dinar. SAR AS, on behalf of the SCM operating partnership, will submit the bid bonds for the three completed tenders for soil remediation and oil recovery projects in Lots A, B, and C in South East Kuwait. The final submission date was postponed from June 28th until August 2nd.

The released tenders are precursor contracts to larger soil remediation and oil recovery contracts with aggregate values estimated to be in excess of US$3 billion for the clean-up of the Kuwait Oil Lakes, left as the result of the retreating Iraqi army in 1991. As previously announced, SCM, through SAR AS, is part of a select group of companies that have recently been pre-qualified by the KOC as contractors approved to bid on extensive soil remediation contracts, as well as other contracted services which include treatment of drill cuttings and waste management, to be released by the KOC.
