WellDog and Excel Sign MOU to Bring Unconventional Natural Gas Services to China

New Alliance Is Directed at Providing Best-in-Class Technical Services to Emerging Chinese CBM and Shale Gas Markets

LARAMIE, WY and CALGARY, AB--(Marketwire - Jul 27, 2011) - WellDog and Excel Team Holdings announced today that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding under which Excel will introduce WellDog's suite of technical services to the fast-growing coalbed methane (CBM) and shale gas markets in China.

"This is an exciting moment for both companies as China is gearing up unconventional gas (CBM) activities in its 12th 5 year plan," said Peter Ho, Chairman and CTO of Excel. "Our group will be acting as a main technology bridge between top notch North America CBM technology groups such as WellDog and companies that are engaged in exploiting China's vast unconventional gas resources. WellDog's alliance with us will provide the crucial technical service support for the complex coal environment in China. We look forward to WellDog's service expansion into China soon!"

The MOU covers all of WellDog's business lines, including its award-winning pre-production gas testing services, its established pressure monitoring sales and installation services, its new permeability testing services, and its reservoir engineering services, as well as its business line based around a sustainably-focused downhole water/gas separation and re-injection technology.

"We've been examining the China market landscape for two years, and Excel is exactly the market entry channel that we've been seeking," said John M. Pope, Ph.D., president and CEO of WellDog. "Rational investigation indicates that China will become the leading unconventional gas market soon -- both as a consumer and as a producer that needs best-in-class services. We're pleased to now be able to help China unconventional gas producers make more gas with less environmental impact, as we have in many other markets."

Excel recently announced that it has opened up a new Unconventional Gas Research Centre in Harbin, via its subsidiary Multi Century Energy Technology (Beijing), to provide equipment and expertise to Coal Field Geology Bureau of Heilongjiang Province. The Research Centre will provide a leading platform for foreign CBM technology providers such as WellDog to showcase and demonstrate unique CBM expertise and penetrate into China's growing upstream CBM market.
