TRI-VALLEY CORPORATION REPORTS SECOND QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Tri-Valley Corporation (NYSE Amex: TIV) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011. Oil and gas production revenues increased 2% to $474,000 in the second quarter of 2011 compared with $465,000 in the second quarter of 2010, due to higher oil prices partially offset by a slight decline in net oil production. Net production in the recent second quarter totaled 6,454 barrels of oil compared with 6,488 barrels of oil in the same quarter of 2010, as reported to the California Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources (DOGGR). Net production costs increased 86% in the 2011 second quarter compared with the same quarter a year ago, reflecting increased drilling activity at the Company’s Claflin oil project near Bakersfield.

“The slight increase in oil and gas revenues in the recent quarter compared with the prior year was below our expectations and was due to a temporary and unforeseen decrease in production at our Pleasant Valley oil project,” said Maston Cunningham, President and CEO of Tri-Valley. “Due to a mechanical failure, we lost steam production capability during the middle of the quarter and were not able to resume steam injection until late June after repairs were completed. We expect net native oil production at Pleasant Valley for the third quarter to approximate 5,299 barrels of oil or slightly under the second quarter of the year as steam injection and affected oil production resumes. Production at Claflin increased 300% from the second quarter last year, and we expect it to continue to grow as the new wells that were drilled during the recent quarter come on line. There are currently twelve wells on the site, including the eight that were recently drilled. Of the new wells, three have been steamed, and production has begun from all three. We anticipate that all eight new wells will be in production by mid October.”
