OTC to Honor ProSep's Innovative Desalting Technology

ProSep, dedicated to providing process solutions to the oil and gas industry, was awarded the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) "2009 Spotlight on New Technology Award" recognizing innovative technologies significantly impacting offshore exploration and production.

The awards will be presented May 4, 2009 at the conference which will be held May 4-7 at Reliant Park in Houston, Texas.

"Exploration and production environments are becoming increasingly challenging. Developing efficient and compact technologies is key to
addressing growing industry needs," said Jacques L. Drouin, President and CEO of ProSep Inc. "The OTC award validates how our proprietary technologies, such as ProSalt, allow our clients to increase their production capacity while achieving economic and environmental objectives."

ProSalt is a compact fresh water-crude conditioning system for crude desalting based on the Company's proprietary mixing technologies. Its
effectiveness and reliability has attracted customers in several locations like Norway and Mexico, and more recently at Saudi Aramco's Shegdum 4 Gas-Oil Separation Plant. The technology demonstrated its ability to reduce consumption of wash water and chemicals while maintaining crude specifications compared to conventional mixing valves.
