NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES SECURITIES LAW.

Laricina Energy Ltd. (Laricina or the Company) is pleased to announce that it has completed its previously announced best-efforts private placement financing with a syndicate co-led by Peters & Co. Limited and RBC Capital Markets. Laricina issued 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 addition and in conjunction with the Brokered Offering, Laricina completed a nonbrokered private placement of 17,471 Flow-Through Shares at a price of $35.00 per share to certain directors, officers and employees of the Company and related parties for gross proceeds of $611,485 (the "Non-Brokered Offering").

Laricina will use the proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Shares to incur eligible Canadian exploration expenses, which will be renounced on or before December 31, 2010 to subscribers of the Flow-Through Shares.

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.
