Carmen Energy Inc. Announces Asset Sale Transaction, Filing of Reserves Information and Proposed Name Change

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- Carmen Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CEI) ("Carmen" or the "Corporation") announces that it has entered into a purchase and sale agreement ("PSA") to sell the Corporation's 60% non-operated working interest in certain oil and gas assets (the "Assets") in the Viking-Kinsella area of Alberta, namely the Corporation's 16-17-049-12 W4 well.

The PSA has been entered into with two companies, both of which are considerate "related parties" to the Corporation under applicable securities laws. R & D Asset Management Ltd. and Red Mountain Resources Ltd. are owned or controlled by Mr. Tyler Rice, the Corporation's President and by Mr. Randy Harrison, a director of the Corporation, respectively. As the sale will constitute a "related party transaction" under applicable securities laws, the Corporation intends to call an annual and special meeting of the Corporation's shareholders prior to February 28, 2013 to approve the sale of the Assets.

The Corporation has been searching for a purchaser for these Assets for several months, with the aim of selling these Assets to reduce Carmen's working capital deficiency (unaudited at June 30, 2012 of approximately $140,000), outstanding notes payable (unaudited at June 30, 2012 of approximately $350,000) and other obligations (consisting primarily of unaudited asset retirement obligations of approximately $98,000). The independent board members of the Corporation have approved the PSA after the Corporation unsuccessfully canvassed a number of parties to find a purchaser for the Assets.

The purchase price for the Assets of $678,600 was agreed to by the parties based on the net present value of proved and probable reserves, as calculated in the independent reserve report prepared for the Corporation for the year ended September 30, 2012, and will be adjusted for actual production to the effective date of January 1, 2013. The purchase price will be comprised of cash, forgiveness of the notes payable held by each of the Purchasers, assumption of the remaining note payable owing by the Corporation by the Purchasers and termination of all Gross Overriding Royalties ("GORRs") held by the Purchasers as well terminating the balance of the GORRs associated with the note payable on the remaining lands held by the Corporation.

Archie Nesbitt, an independent member of the Board of Directors (the "Board") stated that, "the execution of the PSA is crucial to rectifying the Corporation's working capital deficiency as well as to ensure the viability of the Corporation as we rebrand and rebuild after the drilling of three dry wells".

Completion of the asset sale transaction will be conditional upon receipt of approval from the transaction from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") as well as approval of the Corporation's shareholders.

The Corporation is also pleased to announce that it has filed its reports under section 2.1 of National Instrument 51-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Oil & Gas Activities for the year ending September 30, 2012, on the Corporation's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

The Corporation also announces that the Board has approved a resolution to change the Corporations' name to "Margaux Resources Ltd.", subject to Exchange and shareholder approval at the forthcoming Annual Special Meeting of the Corporation.

Additionally, the Corporation is pleased to announce the appointment of Randy Harrison as a member of the Corporation's audit committee, effective immediately.

About Carmen Energy Inc.: Carmen is based in Calgary, Alberta and a publicly traded oil and gas exploration and production company. The focus is on exploration and development of Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin based oil and gas properties. The current projects are the Jumpbush properties in south eastern Alberta.
