Petro Field Earns $2,414,997 in 2006

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 30, 2007) - Petro Field Industries Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PF)("Petro Field" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the financial results for its fiscal year ended September 30, 2006. The Company achieved earnings of $2,414,997 ($0.19 per share) on sales of $35,251,565. The comparable results for fiscal 2005 were earnings of $567,508 ($0.06 per share) on sales of $21,036,806.

These remarkable increases were achieved primarily as a result of the acquisition of the operating assets of Tornado Technologies Inc. on July 6, 2006. Tornado contributed approximately $10,000,000 in sales for the short portion of the year during which it was owned and operated.

At a time when the western Canadian oil patch is experiencing a cyclical correction the Tornado acquisition provides Petro Field with additional strategic value:

- Innovative combustion products that are sold extensively in the USA as well as Canada (geographic market diversification);

- Truck mounted equipment targeted at the utility and construction industries throughout North America (product market diversification).
