CALGARY, Aug. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Ivanhoe Energy Inc. (TSX: IE; NASDAQ: IVAN) announced today that it knows of no reason for the decrease in the Company's share price late in the trading session on August 8, 2013.  There have been no material adverse developments or circumstances with respect to the Company's activities that would explain this sudden drop.

The Ivanhoe Energy executive management team is committed to the Company's success and remains optimistic that 2013 and 2014 will see significant progress in its priority areas.
