Calvalley Petroleum Inc. Announces Status of its Yemen Pipeline Project

    CALGARY, Aug. 14 /CNW Telbec/ - Calvalley Petroleum Inc., (TSX: CVI.A)

    Calvalley Petroleum Inc. (the "Company" or "Calvalley"), an international
oil and gas exploration and production company based in Calgary, Alberta, is
pleased to announce the following information resulting from its ongoing
discussions and planning with respect to a pipeline to transport crude oil
from its Block 9 property to a receiving point located at Block 18 in the
Republic of Yemen.

    Discussions Concerning the Pipeline from Block 9 to Block 18

    Calvalley, a third party operator located on an adjacent block in Yemen
(the "Third Party Operator"), and the Ministry of Oil and Minerals have
recently commenced discussions to revise plans for a 245 kilometre 16 inch
pipeline from Block 9 to a point within Block 18 for connection to an existing
major export line from Block 18 to the Ras Issa terminal at the Red Sea.
    It has been previously reported that Calvalley would be responsible for
building and financing the entire pipeline and it was anticipated that other
third parties along the pipeline right of way would connect to Calvalley's
pipeline system.
    Calvalley, the Third Party Operator and the Ministry of Oil and Minerals
of the Republic of Yemen are now currently negotiating an arrangement whereby
Calvalley will build and finance only 145 kilometres of pipeline from Block 9
to a point within a block operated by the Third Party Operator. In turn, the
Third Party Operator will be responsible for financing the balance of the
approximately 100 kilometres of pipeline required to connect to Block 18.
    Calvalley, the Third Party Operator and the Ministry of Oil and Minerals
are committed to continuing to coordinate their efforts for the construction
of the proposed pipelines. The reduced distance in respect of Calvalley's
portion of the pipeline will significantly reduce Calvalley's construction
cost commitments.
    Calvalley will continue to use best efforts in order to expedite the
construction of the pipeline and is committed to working diligently with all
parties toward the finalization of all issues relating to the project.

    Calvalley is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, trading under the
symbol "CVI.A".
