Laricina Energy Reports First Quarter 2011 Results; First Production at Saleski Pilot and Corporate Update


Laricina continued to make great progress on advancing the Company on all fronts during the first quarter of 2011. Most importantly we began transitioning from steaming to production testing at the Saleski pilot and recorded first production. At Germain we advanced site preparation, development drilling and detailed engineering for Phase 1. We completed an active winter drilling and geophysical program at Saleski, Germain and Burnt Lakes on time and on budget. We continued to attract the high-quality people needed to advance our growth plans. We also maintained our focus on technology innovation, including completing the initial testing on our electromagnetic heating process and we received our first patent approval.

About Laricina Energy Ltd.
Laricina’s goal is to create value by developing Canada’s oil sands using innovative in situ technologies. The Company has a diverse portfolio of oil sands assets at varied stages of development, and experienced people with the requisite technical expertise. Laricina has identified five core areas with commercial 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 as well as the Grosmont and Winterburn carbonate plays, all of which offer significant resource potential.

Laricina is a privately-held, Calgary based, responsible energy company that will contribute supply to the growing demand for crude oil through in situ oil sands development.
