The proprietary products and services of the business to be acquired are complementary to the products of Petro Field and therefore should permit the Company to benefit from significant synergies.

The parties have agreed to complete this transaction on May 31, 2006, or within seven days of the Company completing its financial due diligence.

Petro Field Industries Inc. is a Calgary, Alberta - based fabricator of oil and natural gas production equipment. The Company also purchases, refurbishes as necessary, and sells used production equipment.

EBITDA is a useful supplemental earnings measure that does not have any standardized meaning pursuant to Canadian GAAP and therefore, as discussed herein, may not be comparable to EBITDA as calculated by other entities.
