Gemini Continues Heavy Oil Market Penetration

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 23, 2007) - Gemini Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GKX) is pleased to announce the signing of a significant fabrication and construction contract with a major heavy oil producer valued at approximately $18 million. This project is scheduled to commence immediately and continue through to April, 2009. Gemini's involvement in this thermal recovery project encompasses the fabrication of several modules and the construction of a number of well-pads.

This project provides further evidence of the Corporation's success in building its reputation within the heavy oil industry as a preferred fabricator and constructor for thermal recovery projects. When combined with the other similar projects announced earlier this year, the Field Services segment backlog now totals more than $40 million, nearly doubling the value booked last year at this time. Current business development efforts are focused upon securing these longer-term projects to provide a more stable base of business to better utilize existing infrastructure and improve profitability.

Gemini is focused on selectively expanding its service offering within the heavy oil sector while maintaining support for existing and new clients in the conventional oil and gas market. This approach will provide a more balanced revenue stream when combined with the progress being achieved in downstream processing and alternative energy.

"These agreements are important to our long-term success by firmly positioning Gemini as a supplier of choice to the heavy oil market", said Carl Johnson, Gemini's President and CEO. "They also position us well to provide follow-on services as future phases are released on these projects. We intend to continue aggressively pursuing heavy oil and alternative energy projects to provide growth, profitability and stability."
