Petromanas Energy Inc. Comments on Helicopter Incident in Albania 
CALGARY, Aug. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Petromanas Energy Inc. ("Petromanas", or the 
"Company") (TSXV: PMI) received notification from its seismic contractor in 
Albania, Geotec Spa, of an incident involving a helicopter owned by a 
third-party sub-contractor which occurred at approximately 13:10 hrs Central 
European Time on August 13, 2013. The helicopter crashed shortly after takeoff 
from its operations base in Albania. The aircraft was not carrying any seismic 
equipment at the time and only the pilot, who suffered unspecified but 
believed to be non-life threatening injuries, was on board. The pilot was 
removed from the aircraft and transported to hospital in Tirana where his 
condition is being assessed further. No other injuries have been reported at 
this time. 
Investigators from the Albanian Civil Aviation Authority, Geotec, and the 
third-party helicopter contractor are currently on location to determine the 
cause of the incident. The Company is monitoring the situation and will 
cooperate with the investigation. Seismic operations have been temporarily 
suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. It is not known when 
seismic operations will recommence.
