ST. JOHN'S, Dec. 23 /CNW/ - Canadian Imperial Venture Corp ("CIVC" / the "Company") announced today that the Company had received notification on December 21, 2010 from Dragon Lance Management Company ("Dragon Lance" / the "Operator") that there were deficiencies in several of the applications required to be filed and approved by the regulatory authorities prior to receiving approval to drill. The filing of these applications is the responsibility of the Operator, Dragon Lance, who was notified of these problems directly by the regulatory authorities. The delay in receiving the necessary approvals increases the risk that the drilling of the well will not be initiated by the expiry date of the license, January 15, 2011.

The Operator and senior management from both CIVC and their joint venture partner Shoal Point Energy Ltd. are in St. John's, NL, to address the deficiencies in the filings with the regulators.

Canadian Imperial Venture Corp. is an independent Canadian-based energy company, a leader in the Green Point oil-in-shale play. Eastern Canada is the home to such developments as the Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose, Sable Island, Deep Panuke, and McCully fields.
