ProSep Announces $1.8 Million in New Contracts

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 5, 2011) - ProSep Inc. (TSX:PRP) ("ProSep" or the "Company"), dedicated to providing process solutions to the oil and gas industry, today announced it was awarded $1.8 million in new contracts to supply a produced water treatment system for installation on a deepwater Gulf of Mexico facility and crude dehydration equipment for two oil sands facilities located in Alberta, Canada.

"The Gulf of Mexico and the Canadian Oil Sands represent new and promising territories for ProSep. With sustained high crude prices, increasing production challenges and regulation, demand for our process equipment continues to grow," said Jacques L. Drouin, President & CEO.

The produced water treatment system to be supplied to a deepwater GOM facility consists of hydrocyclones and induced gas flotation (IGF) equipment, designed to treat 40,000 BPD of produced water to less than 20 ppm oil in water. The equipment is expected to be delivered early 2012.

The crude dehydration systems consist of engineering services and internals for one free-water knock-out (FWKO) vessel and two thermal electrostatic treaters designed to dehydrate 15 API crude to 0.5% basic sediment and water (BS&W) outlet oil specification. The equipment is expected to be delivered by early 2012 to two oil sands facilities located in Alberta, Canada. This contract was awarded through a commercial alliance with Edmonton-based engineering and manufacturing company Thermo Design (TDE).
