Astrata Wins Oil and Gas Exploration Location-Based Service Contract

Brunei Shell Petroleum has awarded Astrata an extension through September 2008 to its current location- based services contract for oil and gas exploration activities.

This contract extension is the latest addition to Astrata Group's growing list of new revenue contracts, including its recent record-breaking USD($)93 million telematics contract, which the company believes is the largest single contract in the history of the telematics industry.

Mark Tuttle, Head of Geomatics for Brunei Shell, commented: "Astrata has proved itself to be a capable and reliable supplier of onshore location-based services meeting their contractual requirements in a timely and professional manner."

"We are pleased to announce that Brunei Shell has renewed its contract with Astrata. It is testimony to our continued commitment during the past three years in providing reliable and quality services and constantly improving HSSE," said Martin Euler, Astrata's CEO.
