Innovative Wireline Solutions Inc. Announces Completion of Equipment Sales Agreement With Libyan Based Company, Arrawafed Oil Services Co.

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 23, 2010) - Innovative Wireline Solutions Inc. ("Innovative" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:IWS) is pleased to announce that it has executed an Equipment Sales Agreement (the "Agreement") with Libyan based company, Arrawafed Oil Services Co. ("Arrawafed").

Pursuant to the Agreement, Arrawafed will hold the exclusive right to purchase WellRunner's designed for desert conditions in Libya (the "Libyan WellRunner") from Innovative for a period of 48 months.

Arrawafed will pay all manufacturing costs plus a set fee to Innovative for each Libyan WellRunner purchased.

"Innovative is very pleased with our strategic alliance with Arrawafed. We are excited to commence the production of the Libyan WellRunner and see this long term agreement as having tremendous potential in creating shareholder value with limited risk" said Cameron Bawol, Vice President Finance & Chief Financial Officer of Innovative.

"Arrawafed is proud to bring the Libyan WellRunner to Libya and believes that this technology will change how slickline work is done in Libya due to its unique and environmentally friendly design and its lower operating costs" said Taha Ellafi, General Manager, Arrawafed.


Innovative Wireline Solutions Inc. has developed a unique wireline (slickline) services truck (named the "WellRunner"), which has significant improvements and modifications over conventional wireline trucks. The development of the WellRunner resulted from the energy industry's desire for a full service slickline truck at more affordable rates, that would be operational through all seasons of the year, including the seasonal road ban periods when the majority of wireline trucks sit idle. The WellRunner delivers a lower operating cost structure and provides significant savings to customers. The WellRunner has been designed to provide full service operations up to depths of 6,000 meters (comparable to significantly heavier and costlier conventional slickline trucks currently operating in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin).
