Ecopetrol Selects ProSep for Cupiagua Gas Treatment System

ProSep was awarded a US $12.9 million contract to supply a CO2 gas separation membrane package to Ecopetrol S.A., Colombia's state-owned Oil and Gas exploration and production company. The system, expected to be delivered during the second half of 2010, is designed to treat large volumes of natural gas and will be installed at the Cupiagua field in the Los Llanos foothills of Colombia.

"This contract, for the delivery of a large scale gas membrane package, represents an important milestone for the Company. Our reputation in process engineering and experience are opening new doors in promising markets. We are proud to add Ecopetrol to our growing list of international clients," said Jacques L. Drouin, President and CEO of ProSep Inc. "Our Houston-based team’s extensive experience in gas treatment, our new state-of-the-art 55,000 square foot fabrication facility and high quality solutions are central to ProSep's value proposition."

ProSep's membrane technology is an environmental friendly, cost-effective alternative to solvent-based treatment systems used for gas conditioning and enhanced oil recovery operations. This specific system is designed to provide treatment capacity ranging from 164-252MMscfd inlet and 140-210MMscfd outlet at less than 1.9% CO2.
