GASFRAC Enters Into Multi-Year Contract with Husky

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2011) - GASFRAC Energy Services Inc. (TSX:GFS) ("GASFRAC") today announced that they have entered into the three year contract with a two year renewal option with Husky Energy ("Husky") for the provision of LPG fracturing services.

Reid MacDonald, GASFRAC's President stated "Husky was one of the early adopters of the GASFRAC LPG technology and has completed significant analysis of the impact of our process on reservoir deliverability. GASFRAC has sufficient equipment available to meet the initial requirements under the contact and will monitor its need for additional equipment on an ongoing basis.

With the combination of the wet second quarter and less than anticipated fracs completed in the third quarter under this contract, GASFRAC's 2011 revenue and earnings will be less than originally anticipated. However, given the continued customer diversification, adoption of the propane fracturing technology and backlog of work required under this contract, GASFRAC expects 2012 to be a year where significant growth in revenue, cash flow and earnings are realized."

GASFRAC is an oil and gas service company headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, whose primary business is to provide LPG fracturing services to oil and gas companies in Canada and the USA.
