Restatement Leads to 10-Q Filing Delay for Toreador

Toreador Resources Corporation on Tuesday said that the filing of its quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2006 will be delayed due to the previously disclosed restatement of prior periods.

At the same time the company expects to file its Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2006.
