TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2012) - Canadian Oil Recovery and Remediation Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CVR)(OTCQX:CRVYF) ("CORRE" or the "Company") provides an update regarding the filing of its financial statements and corresponding management discussion and analysis for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 (the "Financial Statements"). As noted in the Company's press releases dated August 27 and August 31, 2012, the Company was unable to file the Financial Statements prior to the filing deadline of August 29, 2012 and at the request of the Company, Management Cease Trade Orders applicable to John Lorenzo, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, and Alex Gress, Senior Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, were issued by applicable securities commissions in accordance National Policy 12-203. As noted previously, CORRE was unable to file the Financial Statements prior to the aforementioned filing deadline due to the fact that it had received material revenues for the first time during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 pursuant to the BP PLC contract with CORRE's operating partner, SAR AS ("SAR") with respect to the cleaning and treatment of drill cuttings for BP PLC in Jordan (for details concerning this contract, see CORRE's press release dated February 1, 2012). SAR is responsible for the accounting of the SAR-CORRE MENA ("SCM") partnership, as well as the project accounting under the foregoing contract. As SAR recently completed a major buy-out transaction, whereby it was purchased by Stirling Square Capital Partners out of London and new financial personnel have been employed by SAR, complete and accurate financial information was not available to CORRE in order for CORRE to accurately complete the Financial Statements prior to the filing deadline.

Company management met with SAR management in Stavanger, Norway during the week of September 10th, 2012 to discuss the project accounting (including the allocation of certain costs among the parties). Having successfully concluded that meeting and addressed applicable project accounting questions, CORRE now has the necessary financial information required to complete the Financial Statements. Management is currently en route back to Canada and expects that the Financial Statements will be completed and filed on or before September 24th, 2012. CORRE further re-affirms that it intends to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines of National Policy 12-203 for so long as the default remains in effect.
