Material Orders Received for US Pipeline and Refinery Projects

TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

TORONTO, May 27 /CNW/ - Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc. ("FOX-TEK"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and manufacturer of patented non-intrusive sensing systems, today announced the receipt of two contracts worth an estimated total of more than $520,000 for 9 PinPoint continuous monitoring systems. The first contract is for 3 systems and the second contract is for 6 systems. Both of these contracts are repeat orders from existing customers.

The first contract for 3 of these systems was received from a major integrated oil & gas company who has procured the systems for high-temperature corrosion/erosion monitoring at one of their Gulf coast refineries. Previous to this recent order, that customer had purchased a system for the same Gulf coast refinery and one for a California refinery.

The remaining 6 systems announced pertained to one of North America's largest liquids pipeline companies for corrosion monitoring at several locations of interest on some of their key US pipeline assets. This customer previously had purchased a single PinPoint system for one of their Canadian facilities.

Delivery of goods is scheduled for late Q2/early Q3 for both customers. Installation services for both contracts are targeted for the same period.
