CALGARY, AB, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - As an update to its press release of January 25, 2011, relating to preliminary findings of fact and conclusions of law, Equal Energy Ltd. ("Equal" or "the Company") hereby announces that Judge Christopher S. Sontchi of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Court") has issued an Order (the "Order") in furtherance of the Court's findings regarding the trial held before the Court from December 15 to 17, 2010 involving certain agreements between the Company or certain of its subsidiaries and Petroflow Energy Ltd. or certain of its subsidiaries ("Petroflow"). The Order quantifies certain material financial obligations owed by Equal to Petroflow, which were provided for in the Court's earlier findings and conclusions. The extent and amount of Equal's claims against Petroflow must still be finalized in order to quantify its set-off rights and the net amount of the potential liability. The Company does not know when a full and final determination of its financial exposure to Petroflow will be made or whether such final determination will, in fact, have a material financial affect on the Company. Thus the Company has been advised that, at this time no payments are required to be made to Petroflow under the Order. The Company is working diligently with its legal counsel to determine what its legal rights are in terms of challenging the Order, including an appeal and with its auditors to determine the effect on the Company's financial statements.
