BEIJING, March 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SinoTech Energy Limited ("Sinotech" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CTE), a fast-growing provider of enhanced oil recovery ("EOR") services in China, today announced that it has appointed Ernst & Young as its independent auditor, and that it will release its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended December 31, 2010, on March 10, 2011.

The Audit Committee of SinoTech's board of directors has approved the appointment of Ernst & Young Hua Ming ("Ernst & Young") as the Company's independent auditor. Ernst & Young replaces SinoTech's previous auditor, JBPB & Co. (formerly Grant Thornton HK), which was no longer a member firm of the international Grant Thornton network following its recent merger with BDO Limited. The Audit Committee's decision to appoint a new auditor was not the result of any disagreement between the Company and JBPB & Co. on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure.

Mr. Boxun Zhang, CFO of SinoTech, commented, "We would like to thank the JBPB team for its contribution to SinoTech's success. We are also pleased to confirm the appointment of Ernst & Young, whose capabilities, experience and expertise impressed us. As we continue our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance, we look forward to working with Ernst & Young in support of SinoTech's future growth."

The Company today also announced that it will release its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended December 31, 2010, on March 10, 2011.
