Tri-Valley Corporation (NYSE Amex: TIV) announced today that it has appointed Gregory L. Billinger, CPA, as Interim Chief Financial Officer, effective as of August 22, 2011.

Mr. Billinger, 59, is a certified public accountant with over 30 years of corporate finance and accounting experience in the oil and gas industry. He was the Corporate Controller for Ivanhoe Energy Inc., an independent international heavy oil development and production company, from 2000 to 2005, and most recently was the Vice President of Finance and Administration for Ivanhoe's U.S. operations from 2006 to May 2011.

In Mr. Billinger, I am confident we have found a highly competent finance and accounting professional who will fill in admirably while we search for a candidate that meets the needs of the Corporation and our executive management team on a permanent basis.”
