    TSX.V: HE

    VANCOUVER, June 5 /CNW/ - Hanwei Energy Services Corp. (the "Company")
announces that the Company has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of
underwriters led by Canaccord Capital Corporation and including GMP Securities
L.P. and Research Capital Corporation (collectively, the "Underwriters"),
pursuant to which the Company has agreed to sell on a bought deal private
placement basis, 7,000,000 special warrants of the Company (the "Special
Warrants") at a price of $5.00 per Special Warrant (the "Offering Price") for
gross proceeds of $35,000,000 (the "Offering"). Each Special Warrant is
exercisable, at no additional cost, into one common share of the Company. In
addition, the Underwriters will have the option, exercisable up to 48 hours
prior to closing of the Offering, to purchase up to an aggregate of 1,000,000
additional Special Warrants at the Offering Price on the same terms and
conditions as set forth above.
    The net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund the development and
manufacture of products for the wind power market and for general working
capital.
    "The capital from this financing puts us in a strong position to launch
our wind power business and strengthens our balance sheet," said Fulai Lang,
President and CEO of the Company. "We are pleased with our progress in growing
our high-pressure FRP oil pipe business and leveraging our core FRP
manufacturing expertise to diversify into products for coal power pollution
control systems and wind power. We believe that China's expanding demand for
energy, combined with its increasing emphasis on energy efficiency, renewable
energy and pollution control will provide Hanwei with ample opportunities for
growth."
    In connection with the Offering, after meeting the qualification criteria
to file a short form prospectus, the Company will file a short form prospectus
in each of the provinces of Canada to qualify for distribution the common
shares underlying the Special Warrants. If the Company has not obtained a
final receipt for its short form prospectus within 60 days of closing the
Offering, each special warrant will entitle the holder to receive 1.05 common
shares (instead of one common share) for each Special Warrant.
    The Offering is expected to close on or about June 21, 2007 and is
subject to the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
