Questor Technology Inc. Announces Signed Purchase Orders for 17 Incinerators

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Oct. 23, 2013) -


Questor Technology Inc. ("Questor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:QST) is pleased to announce it has received purchase orders for eight incinerators of various sizes from a major crude oil and natural gas producer headquartered in Calgary, Alberta and for nine incinerators of various sizes from Dominion Transmission Inc. (Dominion), operator of one of the largest underground natural gas storage systems in the United States, headquartered in Richmond, Virginia. The values of the orders are $1.5MM and $1.1MM respectively and the majority of the incinerators in both orders are expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2013. Although each transaction individually is not considered material, in combination with the Company's performance in the first half these orders will contribute to strong 2013 financial results for Questor.

Once delivered to the customer, the eight incinerators will be deployed in a well tie-in project in the oil sands to incinerate waste gas. Dominion will deploy the nine units to combust waste gas from dehydration units on several of their sites in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

"Questor's incineration technology addresses the problematic global issues associated with flaring." said Audrey Mascarenhas, Questor's President and Chief Executive officer. "We are assisting our clients with regulatory compliance and environmental performance thereby helping them obtain the social license to operate. Our technology delivers a 99.99% destruction/combustion efficiency of waste hydrocarbon gas eliminating the impurities that would be released into the air through inefficient combustion from flaring."

Flaring has become a significant issue with respect to air quality in many areas in Canada and the United States due to the tremendous growth in crude oil production resulting from the practice called fracking which releases more of the crude oil and natural gas contained within tight formations.


Questor is an international environmental oilfield service company founded in late 1994 and headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with a field office located in Grande Prairie, Alberta. The Company is focused on clean air technologies with activities in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. Questor designs and manufactures high efficiency waste gas incinerators for sale or for use on a rental basis and also provides combustion-related oilfield services. The Company's proprietary incinerator technology destroys noxious or toxic hydrocarbon gases at 99.99% which ensures regulatory compliance, environmental protection, public confidence and reduced operating costs for customers. The technology creates an opportunity to utilize the heat generated from efficient combustion. Questor is recognized for its particular expertise in the combustion of sour gas (H2S). While the Company's current customer base operates primarily in the oil and gas industry, this technology is applicable to other industries such as landfills, water and sewage treatment, tire recycling and agriculture.
