Xebec Announces Order for Natural Gas Upgrading System in Indonesia

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) - Xebec Adsorption Inc. (TSX:XBC) ("Xebec"), a provider of biogas upgrading, natural gas and hydrogen purification solutions for the clean energy market, announced today that it has received an order for a M-3200 Pressure Swing Adsorption ("PSA") system to upgrade natural gas at a chemical plant located in Cikampek, Indonesia.

Xebec's PSA was purchased by PT Indo Raya Kimia, a leading producer of carbon disulphide ("CS2") in Asia Pacific. Xebec's PSA will upgrade lower quality natural gas used as a feed stock in the production of CS2.

"This is Xebec's first sale of an M-3200 PSA for natural gas upgrading in South East Asia, following our successful installations at both offshore and on-shore gas processing facilities in California. We aim to build on this first project in Indonesia to expand our PSA sales in the gas process market across South East Asia," said Andrew Hall, Xebec Vice President for Asia/Pacific.

"In many countries in South East Asia, including Indonesia, the quality of commercial natural gas is quite variable, and gas supplies can be contaminated with carbon dioxide as new lower-quality gas wells and fields are brought on stream. Xebec's M-3200 PSA is a compact, reliable and cost effective solution to remove carbon dioxide from sub-quality natural gas, increasing the methane content to meet the stringent specifications required by industrial consumers of natural gas. In this specific application, Xebec's PSA will assist our customer to increase the productivity and reduce the maintenance downtime of their CS2 synthesis process," said Hall.

Commissioning and start-up of the M-3200 PSA is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2011. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

About the Xebec M-3200

Xebec's PSA process and proprietary rotary valve technology deliver higher efficiency than conventional PSA systems in a more compact, reliable and cost-effective package. Xebec's rotary valve PSA is installed at offshore and onshore natural gas processing installations in California. The M-3200 system can upgrade up to 10 million cubic feet of feed gas per day.
