    MONTREAL, Dec. 3 /CNW/ - TORR Canada Inc. (TSX: TOR) ("TCI" or the

Gas industry, announced today that its American division, ProSep Technologies
has been awarded a US$12.9 million contract to supply gas treating equipment
packages to Pan American Energy LLC - Sucursal Argentina ("Pan American")
    Under terms of the agreement, ProSep will supply Pan American with custom

leading energy company in South America and Argentina's second largest Oil &
Gas company," said Jacques L. Drouin, President and CEO of TORR Canada.
"ProSep's vast experience in the development of gas membrane technology and
long history of supplying and servicing gas membrane systems in Argentina has
proven to be key in demonstrating our ability to create a robust,
cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solution tailored to our client's
specific needs."
    "Our direct involvement with all aspects of the project and proven
ability to deliver quality process equipment packages made us the logical
choice for the fast-track, delivery sensitive gas treating project at Valle
Hermoso," said Lew Mologne, President, ProSep Technologies. "We look forward
to a very successful collaboration at Valle Hermoso and view this as the first
of potentially many more gas treating projects with Pan American Energy."
    The Valle Hermoso site is located in the Comodoro Region in southern

also currently the largest investment target for oil and gas operations in
