    MONTREAL, April 18 /CNW/ - TORR Canada Inc. (TSX: TOR) ("TCI"), dedicated
to providing water treatment to the Oil & Gas industry, today announced that
it has delivered the second and final half of its contract with SK Engineering
& Construction ("SKEC"), one of the world's leading engineering, procurement

    The contract signed in March of 2006 provided for seven sets of TORR
water treatment systems to treat 260,000 barrels per day of water, for a total

visibility in the last year," said Alain Ferland, President and CEO of TORR
Canada Inc.
