__C Level II Announces Completion of Financing Conditions and Provides Updates re Acquisition of Canadian Oil Recovery & Remediation Enterprises Inc.
Montreal, Quebec, November 26, 2007, C Level II International Holding Inc. ("CII" or the "Company") – CII (TSX-V: CII.P), as a follow-up to its preceding press release announcing the entering into of an agreement with its acquisition target for its Qualifying Transaction (the "Transaction"), Canadian Oil Recovery & Remediation Enterprises Inc. ("CORRE"), a private company involved in the acquisition, development and commercialization of oil recovery and remediation technologies, is pleased to announce that CORRE has completed non-brokered private placements of convertible debentures ("Debentures") for aggregate gross proceeds of $6,161,000, exceeding its first financing target initially set at $5,250,000. In addition, CORRE has completed a non-brokered financing of subscription receipts ("Subscription Receipts") for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,000,000, which also exceeds the amount initially contemplated (being $2,000,000).

The Debentures bear interest at a rate of 7% per annum, payable semi-annually, and are convertible at the option of the holder into common shares of CORRE ("CORRE Shares") at a price of $0.75 per share. The Debentures are automatically convertible into CORRE Shares upon the happening of a "Liquidity Transaction" (which, by definition, includes the Transaction). It is expected that all of the Debentures will be converted into CORRE Shares immediately prior to the closing of the Transaction.

The Subscription Receipts have been issued at a price of $1.00 per receipt and will convert immediately prior to completion of the Transaction into units of CORRE ("Units"), with each such Unit being comprised of one (1) CORRE Share and one-half of one (½ ) common share purchase warrant of CORRE (each whole warrant being a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will be exercisable at a price of $1.25 per CORRE Share (which shall be subject to adjustment in accordance with the exchange of securities pursuant to the Transaction) for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance of the Subscription Receipts. The proceeds of the Subscription Receipt Financing have been deposited in escrow and will be returnable to the subscribers therefor in the event that a Liquidity Transaction is not completed by CORRE on or before March 31, 2008.

Amendments to the Transaction

As a result of this increase in the number of securities issued by CORRE, it is expected that upon completion of the Transaction (subject to any further financing that may be completed), the total number of CORRE Shares that will be issued and outstanding and subject to acquisition by CII will be 18,874,667 CORRE Shares. In addition, there will be a total of 1,500,000 Warrants outstanding, as well as 1,120,000 options to acquire CORRE Shares. The holders of CORRE Shares will be entitled to receive 5.714286 common shares of CII (each, a "Common Share") for each CORRE Share (for a total of 107,855,243 Common Shares), with the Common Shares being issued at a deemed price of $0.175 per Common Share, for total consideration of $18,874,667. The foregoing convertible warrants and options will be exchangeable for securities of CII using the above mentioned conversion ratio.

In addition, the parties have agreed in principle to re-cast the Transaction as a three-cornered amalgamation (the "Amalgamation") whereby CORRE will complete an amalgamation with a wholly-owned subsidiary of CII that will be formed for the sole purpose of completing the Amalgamation, the consideration for which shall be the issuance to holders of CORRE Shares of 5.714286 Common Shares for each one (1) CORRE Share. Following completion of the Amalgamation, CII will, subject to the approval of its shareholders, consolidate its Common Shares on a 1 for 3 basis and change its name to "Canadian Oil Recovery & Remediation Enterprises Ltd."

Remaining Conditions Precedent

The parties' obligations to complete the Transaction are subject to the satisfaction of the usual remaining conditions precedent including:

(a) all necessary shareholder and Board approvals and requisite approval of the Exchange and all other regulatory authorities and third parties to the Transaction;

(b) no adverse material change shall have occurred in the business, affairs, financial condition assets or operations of CII or CORRE prior to completion of the Transaction;

(c) CII having a minimum net cash balance on hand of $1,250,000 prior to costs, fees and expenses related to the Transaction; and

(d) both CII and CORRE being satisfied with the results of their respective due diligence review in connection with the Transaction.


CORRE is a private Canadian company with head offices at Suite 110, 141 Adelaide Street West, Toronto. It is fully licensed to use two innovative oil recovery and remediation technologies that work in tandem to fully rehabilitate oil contaminated sites while simultaneously recovering the oil. It is expected that such technologies will be used initially to assist in the clean up of oil lakes located in the Middle-East, including in Kuwait. CORRE has already secured local partnerships in the middle-east, built prototypes of its proprietary machinery combining its 2 licensed technologies, and applied to a pre-qualification process with the Kuwait authorities. CORRE also owns the advanced oil recovery and remediation equipment systems that utilize its patented technologies to separate oil from sand and deliver a complete package of site rehabilitation to its customers, which are primarily oil companies.

The first technology, the "APEX" technology, employs proprietary and patented chemicals to treat and upgrade sludge and other oily wastes that accumulate in sludge pits mainly from the cleaning of oil storage tanks. The APEX technology is very effective in the treatment of oily wastes with relatively higher content of hydrocarbon. The World Bank has approved the APEX technology and equipment, which has already been deployed in Romania, Mexico, Norway and other parts of the world where they have proven their technical, environmental and economic efficiencies in the separation of petroleum-based waste materials, including hydrocarbons from oily sludge and contaminated soil.

The second technology, known as the "OS" technology uses hydrogen peroxide to separate oil from sand and is very effective in the remediation of oil contaminated sites or substrata which has lower content of hydrocarbon. Accordingly, the two technologies will work in tandem to deliver a "turn key" job of cleaning the top layers of sludge and oily wastes of sludge pits, oil lakes and other oil contaminated sites, as well as the underground layers of soil into which the oily wastes and sludge have seeped.

CORRE expects to commence its operations early next year. It has established CORRE MENA, a Jebel Ali Free Zone Area company with head offices in Dubai, U.A.E., to specifically manage all its operations in the Middle East and North Africa. CORRE owns 75% of CORRE MENA, while CORRE's strategic Middle East partners, namely, the principals of CANAR group of companies of Kuwait, owns the remaining 25%. CORRE MENA's business plan calls for its primary focus on the largest size market of oil recovery and remediation of oil contaminated sites in the Gulf region. The total 25-30 year projects value of this market is estimated at $25 billion, which includes the Kuwait Oil Lakes that were caused by the Kuwait oil fires, a serious environmental damage of the Gulf War.


Completion of this Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including but not limited to Exchange acceptance. The Transaction cannot close until the required Exchange approval is obtained. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.

Investors are cautioned that, except as disclosed in the Filing Statement or Proxy Solicitation Circular to be prepared in connection with the Transaction, any information released or received with respect to the Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of a capital pool company should be considered highly speculative.

The TSX Venture Exchange has in no way passed upon the merits of the proposed Transaction and has neither approved nor disapproved the contents of this press release. A more detailed press release will be subsequently published in order to provide additional details on the contemplated qualifying transaction.

Trading in CII's common shares on the Exchange will be halted pending completion of the Transaction.
