CALGARY, Alberta, April 11, 2013

CALGARY, Alberta, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Aquatech, a global leader in
water purification technology for industrial and infrastructure markets, has
been awarded a contract for the design, engineering, supply and supervision of
installation and commissioning of a Produced Water Evaporator system for
Pengrowth Lindbergh Energy Corporation's 12,500 bpd SAGD facility. The project
is located in the Cold Lake region of Alberta, Canada.

Designed using Aquatech's patented High Efficiency Evaporation process
(HEVAP™), the system will treat produced water to provide high quality boiler
feedwater that will be converted into steam to be injected into the reservoir
as part of the SAGD thermal process for oil extraction. The HEVAP process
incorporates a softening step combined with additional conditioning of the
feedwater prior to treatment by the evaporators. This process provides the
evaporators with essentially a scale free environment to operate, in addition
to lowering OPEX and LCC Life Cycle costs. The system will be shipped by first
quarter in 2014 with expected commissioning and start-up to be completed by
end of 2014.

"This is a great win for Aquatech as we continue to penetrate this key market.
The selected HEVAP process for this system provides a significant increased
level of operational reliability and availability, which are key requirements
in any SAGD facility. We are pleased that Pengrowth has selected our patented
process for their project as we view the Oil Sands market as having a large
potential for this type of system," said Alan R. Daza, P.Eng., Vice President
of Sales & Business Development for Aquatech's Infrastructure and Major
Projects division.
