E.S.I. Environmental Sensors Inc.: Major Alberta Oil Company Expands Use of FloPoint™

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - E.S.I. Environmental Sensors Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ESV) ("ESI", the "Company") today announced a major international oil company is expanding its trial use of FloPoint at installations in Alberta. FloPoint is currently being used to measure water content and optimize oil production at 15 installations operated by this customer.

"This is a notable accomplishment for ESI and it represents the next step toward broader use of FloPoint in the oil patch. We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with a major customer and are confident that their use of an additional three sensor tools in high water cut wells will provide further feedback on FloPoint's performance and suitability in these applications," said David Porter, ESI's Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Successful conclusion of these trial installations will give us strong momentum for broadening our markets and attracting new customers."

ESI continues to expand its market development activities for FloPoint as oil companies look to gather more information about the effect production changes have on oil and water produced. This information is used to optimize oil production while generating more revenue and extending the life of existing reservoirs.
