CALGARY, April 12 /CNW/ - Calvalley Petroleum Inc. (TSX: CVI.A)

announce that it has commenced delivery of Block 9 production of crude
oil into the Masila Export Pipeline System ("MEPS") through the
Company's Truck Offloading Facilities ("TOF") located at Block 51.
Current deliveries utilize existing space in the Block 51 metering
system. This temporary arrangement will be in place until early May
when the Company's own metering system will be fully functional.
With the initiation of operations at the TOF, Calvalley is a now able to
begin production of the first commercial oil from the Ras Nowmah and Al
Roidhat fields, into the MEPS.

Calvalley continues its activities, as close to normal as possible,
with two drilling rigs and one service rig in operation.

increasing production, by bringing significant volumes of shut-in
production on line, takes advantage of higher oil prices and market
accessibility provided by the MEPS. As a result, all of Calvalley's
blended crude oil will receive the Masila Blend price which is
benchmarked to Brent Crude pricing.
