Ridgeline Enters Into an Agreement to Treat Frac-Water

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2011) - Ridgeline Energy Services Inc. ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RLE) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to install and operate a fully integrated water treatment facility for a major natural gas exploration and development company in N.E. British Columbia. The water treatment facility is scalable and will be capable (when fully built out) of handling in excess of 4,000 cubic meters per day of return frac water, process water, camp waste water and drilling waste water.

By installing this water treatment facility the client will be able to expand its well development program of drilling and fracing while minimizing demand on local fresh water systems. The water treatment facility is designed to operate year round to remove hydrocarbons, heavy metals, TDS, suspended solids, and chlorides.

In addition, as power demand for the client development program expands, Ridgeline will be able to provide the client with electrical energy for its operations at a lower cost and with a smaller carbon footprint than the current diesel-based electric generation plants.

With an ultra low energy requirement and its modular system design, Ridgeline believes its proprietary water treatment facility provides a unique solution for the petroleum industry by offering a lower cost water treatment method that will reduce the environmental impact of oil and gas development.

The water treatment services will be provided by Ridgeline through the Eau Claire Partnership. The water treatment technology is exclusively licensed to the Eau Claire Partnership by DEJA II, LLC.
