  OriginOil Signs First Pay-Per-Barrel Customer for Oil & Gas Water Cleanup

Frac water cleanup provider intends to deploy OriginOil’s system in early
2014, paying a fee for each barrel of water treated

Business Wire

LOS ANGELES -- October 8, 2013

OriginOil, Inc. (OTCBB:OOIL), developer of Electro Water Separation™ (EWS),
the high-speed, chemical-free process to clean up large quantities of water,
today announced that it has signed its first pay-per-barrel agreement with
Industrial Systems, Inc. (ISI) for a water treatment system integrating
OriginOil’s process as the first stage of treatment.

Delta, Colorado-based ISI has agreed that it will operate the Model P160 as
part of its overall frac flowback water cleanup service, and pay OriginOil a
fee for each barrel processed.

Based on the signed contract, OriginOil has scheduled construction of an EWS™
Petro Model P160, capable of processing up to 160 liters (65 gallons) per
minute. OriginOil’s finance partner, VenPro Partners, will provide the capital
for the construction of the system. The system is designed to treat frac
flowback or produced water for immediate reuse and will be built on skids so
that it can easily be moved from site to site.

“We have been supplying modular tanks to the oil patch for years and are
continually being asked if we supply water treatment equipment,” said Bob
Isom, Chief Executive Officer of Industrial Systems, Inc. “After researching
the various water treatment systems on the market, we selected
Electro-Coagulation as the best process, and OriginOil’s as best-performing
among the choices, which include Halliburton, Ecosphere and others.”

CEO Isom continued, “Our plan is to deploy the first system in the first
quarter of 2014 in the intermountain area in Colorado and to order five
additional systems for the Bakken and Permian basins.”

“We are excited by this first acceptance of our pay-per-barrel Throughput
Program,” said Bill Charneski, Chief Operating Officer of OriginOil. “It
removes any hurdles for oil service and water treatment companies to launch or
dramatically improve their water recycling business. It is a major step toward
commercialization of Electro Water Separation.”

“I have long advocated EWS to revolutionize shale-related cleanup in the oil
patch,” said Gerald Bailey, OriginOil oil and gas industry advisor and former
president of President of Exxon, Arabian Gulf, Abu Dhabi, and UAE. “I am
confident that this is the last remaining barrier to commercializing our
best-in-class water treatment technology.”

Located in Delta, Colorado, Industrial Systems, Inc. provides manufacturing,
construction services, and solutions to the mine, oil & gas, and power
industries in the US. For over twenty years, it has provided major capital
engineering, procurement, manufacturing, project management, and construction
services for multi-million dollar projects. A major portion of its business is
design and manufacturing of permanent and portable tanks.

The company has moved beyond the US recently: In 2011, Tokyo Electric Power
Co. (TEPCO) called on ISI to assist in the emergency water cleanup at the
Fukushima nuclear site. ISI designed and manufactured three major heavy skid
structures which contained pumping, filtering, and all controls. During the
project, the company employed over 110 additional employees on an
around-the-clock emergency basis.

According to consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, “The shale revolution is
projected to require more than $5 trillion in investment over the next 20
years in the US alone—largely directed to the upstream and midstream sectors.”
