Third PinPoint System Sale to Oil & Gas Customer in Alberta

TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW Telbec/ -Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc. ("FOX-TEK"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and manufacturer of patented non-intrusive sensing systems, today announced the installation of another PinPoint system on a sweet crude pipeline for a large Calgary-based oil and gas producer. This is the third system purchased by this customer for installation in Alberta.

The solar-powered PinPoint system gathers remaining wall thickness information at locations identified by the operating company as being high risk, high consequence, or both. The PinPoint system can be installed on both buried- and above-ground pipelines during operation, meaning there is no need to shutdown throughput to install the sensing system. Data is transmitted using a cellular connection and subsequently posted on a secure website for 24 hour access by stakeholders.
