Laricina Energy Ltd. (Laricina or the Company) is pleased to announce that yesterday it entered into a financing agreement, on a best-efforts basis, with a syndicate co-led by Peters & Co. Limited and RBC Capital Markets. Laricina will issue up to 430,000 common shares on a flow-through basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) (“Flow-Through Shares”) at a price of $35.00 per share for total gross proceeds of $15,050,000 pursuant to certain exemptions from prospectus requirements (the “Brokered Offering”).
In conjunction with the Brokered Offering, Laricina will also complete, on a private placement basis, a non-brokered offering of up to 25,000 Flow-Through Shares at a price of $35.00 per share to certain insiders of the Company for gross proceeds of $875,000 (the “Non-Brokered Offering”).
The Brokered Offering and Non-Brokered Offering is scheduled to close on or about October 19, 2010.

The proceeds of the sale of the Flow-Through Shares will be used for Laricina’s delineation drilling and geophysical exploration programs on its oil sands properties.
About Laricina Energy Ltd.
Laricina is a privately-held, Calgary-based company concentrating on capturing opportunities in the oil sands areas of western Canada. The Company is creating value through developing a diverse portfolio of oil sands assets using current and future innovations of in situ technology. Laricina has identified five core areas that have production potential in excess of 500,000 gross barrels of bitumen per day from a large concentrated resource base with approximately 4.6 billion barrels net recoverable bitumen. These assets range from the familiar oil sands in the McMurray formation to less developed and less mature Grand Rapids, and Grosmont and Winterburn carbonate plays, all of which offer significant resource potential.
