Just give the correct tnsnames.ora entry on connection string or set the correct ORACLE_SID variable to point to the correct database.

This will set your oracle environment, but make sure an entry for your 11g database
exists in the /etc/oratab file (or /var/opt/oracle/oratab for Solaris).

Add it at the top of your script:
. /usr/local/bin/oraenv ORCL11  #<== Here you put the ORACLE_SID of the 11g database
# Environment is set, so continue with your commands here....
