Eurocontrol Expands Agreement With GWEST

-North America Added to GWEST Mandate-

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2007) - Eurocontrol Technics Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EUO), a Canadian public company specializing in the acquisition, development and commercialization of innovative authentication and verification technologies, through its wholly owned subsidiary Global Fluids International S.A. (GFI), today announced the company has expanded its contract with GWEST (WWW.GWEST.NET), a Washington based consultancy specializing in global geopolitical energy policy and analysis, to include Canada and the United States, in addition to the previously announced Gulf of Guinea region of West Africa.

GWEST (Global Water & Energy Strategy Team) is a leading advisor to sovereign nations, integrated oil and gas exploration, production and services companies, construction companies and financial institutions on the politics of the global energy markets. GWEST's partners, associates and related professionals utilize their combined expertise in the areas of political and financial analysis, market research, and risk management to provide cutting-edge, value-added strategies for clients whose business is focused on global energy markets.

"We are very pleased to have expanded our agreement with GWEST to include the North American energy security market, and further, that GWEST has been able to identify numerous potential deployment opportunities in both Canada and the USA," stated Bruce Rowlands, President and Chief Executive Officer, Eurocontrol Technics. "North America is a very attractive market for our industry leading Petromark™ technology, albeit a significantly different environment than what we see in Eastern Europe, Africa, Central and South America," added Mr. Rowlands.

"We have had very positive reactions from our introduction of Petromark™ to several West African countries so far and believe there are significant additional opportunities in both Canada and the United States," said Paul Michael Wihbey, GWEST's President, who was reached while speaking at a global energy security conference in Switzerland.

"In the current energy pricing environment we believe that producers, refiners and shippers in the world's largest integrated oil and natural gas market will be able to deliver value to their shareholders by using Petromark™ to more precisely know how much of their product they move from the wellhead to market. We also believe that Petromark™ can play a vital role in domestic American energy security through its application to military fuel logistics and authentication markets," said Frederick Cedoz, GWEST's Vice President for Operations based in Washington, DC.

Eurocontrol's innovative Petromark™ marking solution addresses two major problems in the oil industry - combating the trade in illicit fuels and providing brand protection for large oil companies. As the price of oil has increased substantially, such problems have become a higher priority for government and corporate officials to address.
