CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 18, 2006) - EcoMax Energy Services Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:EES) ("EcoMax") announces that, in response to questions from several shareholders and potential investors about recent sales of the Company's shares by members of its Board of Directors, it has made enquiries of those directors. The Company has been informed by Messrs. Thomson, Grimes and Martin that any current sales (December 2005 though to April 2006) have been or will be to allow them to invest in shares of the Company available from the exercise of warrants or options that will expire over the next few months.

EcoMax Energy Services Ltd. is an oilfield services company whose product offering includes BOP and valve sales and service solutions to the oil and gas and other industries in Western Canada and the patented EcoMax Chemical Pump. The EcoMax Pump reduces operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions at natural gas installations by utilizing a small pressure differential from the wellhead to the flow line to power a methanol chemical injection pump, which prevents hydrates from forming at the wellhead. The pump returns the exhaust gas to the sales line increasing natural gas sales and eliminating wellhead atmospheric emissions. The EcoMax Pump offers significant economic benefits to customers while enhancing safety and landowner relations. Operators can sell gas now being emitted to the atmosphere from sweet gas facilities, eliminate the need for propane at sour gas facilities and may accumulate carbon credits for greenhouse gas reductions. The EcoMax Pump addresses issues in the recently ratified Kyoto agreement and the updated Alberta Energy and Utilities Board Guide 60 on the emission of fugitive gases from well sites.

The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
