FFM Successfully Completes First Commercial Contract

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2011) - Formation Fluid Management Inc. (TSX VENTURE:FFM) ("Formation Fluids") or ("the Company") is pleased to announce that further to its news release of October 20, 2011 it has successfully completed its first commercial contract under an agreement with a large Canadian oil & gas producer ("Partner") based in Calgary, Alberta. The Formation Fluids Mobile Water Treatment Unit exceeded all performance requirements and surpassed Alberta Environmental Standards.

In accordance with the contract, Formation Fluids cleaned and returned the water to its natural source with minimal impact to the environment. Prior to treatment, the water was tested by an independent laboratory and found to have total dissolved solids ("TDS") of 6,970 mg/L and a contaminant level of 3,520 mg/L. Per the contract, the Company's Partner required that the contaminant level be reduced to below 230 mg/L. The final results were again tested by an independent laboratory and the TDS level was reduced to an average of 40 mg/L over nine samples and the contaminant level was reduced to below 10 mg/L. This was achieved while operating under adverse weather conditions and in temperatures substantially below the designed temperature range for the Mobile Water Treatment Unit.

This project has provided an excellent field demonstration of Formation Fluids technology and capabilities while generating revenue for the Company. We have included a photo of the two trailers comprising the Mobile Treatment Unit on site along with the storage tanks used for this project so everyone can see the mobile nature of our system.
