Tri-Valley Corporation Commences Formal Discussions With OPUS Special Committee

Tri-Valley Corporation (NYSE Amex:TIV) (the “Company”) today announced that it recently established a Special Committee of the TVC OPUS 1 Drilling Program, L.P. (“OPUS”), a Delaware limited partnership. The Company, as the managing partner of OPUS, appointed Peter Marguglio, G. Robert Miller, Todd Garrett, George Bean, and Peter Huggins to the Special Committee. Each of the Special Committee members is an OPUS partner, is independent of the Company, and was nominated for service on the Special Committee by the OPUS Advisory Committee, a twelve-member committee that the Company created and utilized over the past year to review alternatives and identify the best path forward for financing and developing the Pleasant Valley Oil Sands Project. Any actions or transactions contemplated between the Special Committee and Tri-Valley will be submitted to the OPUS partners for approval in accordance with the terms of the OPUS Partnership Agreement.

The Company held its first meetings with the Special Committee on June 15 and 16, 2011, in Costa Mesa, California. During the meetings, the Company and the Special Committee covered a range of key business issues that both parties see as an important step for advancing the development of the Pleasant Valley Oil Sands Project in Oxnard, California.

“With the formation of the Special Committee and the commencement of formal meetings last week, I am confident that we have instituted a process that will culminate in an amicable resolution of matters that will permit the continued development and financing of the Pleasant Valley Oil Sands Project on a timely and cost-effective basis,” said Maston N. Cunningham, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tri-Valley. “Both the Special Committee and Tri-Valley are focused on maximizing returns for our OPUS partners and Tri-Valley stockholders alike, and our meetings were a solid start on that effort.”

“I am extremely pleased with the progress made by Tri-Valley and the Special Committee last week,” said Peter Marguglio, Chairman of the OPUS Special Committee. “Speaking for the Special Committee, I am confident that we now have in place a process that will satisfactorily and efficiently resolve the legacy issues between Tri-Valley and OPUS, and will ultimately lead to an arrangement with Tri-Valley that will better align the interests of both OPUS and Tri-Valley.”
