CriticalControl Captures Large US Based Oil and Gas
Producers with its Propriety ezy-Ops Solution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 24, 2005) - CriticalControl
Solutions Corp., ("CriticalControl" or the "Company") (TSX Venture: CCZ)
is pleased to announce the successful launch of the latest version of
ezy-Ops, CriticalControl's proprietary materials and asset management
application for the upstream oil and gas industry. The previous version
of ezy-Ops has already been implemented in the Canadian and Chinese
operations of a large independent, US based oil and gas producer.

The new version of ezy-Ops has now been successfully implemented to
manage the US operations of a second large independent oil and gas
producer resulting in revenues to CriticalControl of over $400,000. The
new version has enhanced functionality and integration with production
accounting systems, providing the key reporting and control requirements
necessary under the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation.

CriticalControl is pleased to further announce that the new version of
ezy-Ops has been selected through a competitive tender process by a
third large independent, US based oil and gas producer for their
Canadian operations. This latest achievement is indicative of ezy-Ops'
superior functionality and CriticalControl's implementation capability.
The expansion of ezy-Ops into other international locations by
CriticalControl's existing client base and new targeted customers will
result in strong growth over the next two years.

"Given our increasing leadership position in materials and asset
management amongst the large independent oil and gas producers,
CriticalControl will be launching a new version of ezy-Ops by the third
quarter of this year aimed at the small to mid sized oil and gas
producers. Leveraging off of our best practices developed during our
larger implementations and an ASP (application service provider) service
we provide to manage the international locations of our large clients,
we will launch a new version of ezy-Ops which maximizes functionality
while minimizing implementation and management costs necessary for
successful implementation in the small to mid size oil and gas
production industry," said George Watson, CEO of CriticalControl.
