Canadian Veteran Returns to Lead Calgary Multi-Chem Office

    Don Hallett joins Texas Oilfield Production Chemical Company

    STETTLER, Alberta, March 14 /CNW/ -- A recognized leader in Canadian
production chemicals, Don Hallett, is returning to North America to lead the
development of Canadian operations for Multi-Chem Group LLC, the world's
fourth largest oilfield production chemical company.  Hallett will be vice
president of Canada and the Eastern Hemisphere for Multi-Chem.
    Prior to joining Multi-Chem, Hallett served as region vice president for
Europe, Africa, Russia and Caspian for Baker Petrolite; he earned a sterling
reputation as head of their Canadian operations from 1997 to 2005.
    "Don will introduce to Canada the unique technologies, services and
values that Multi-Chem brings to the production chemical industry," said James
Archer, president and chief executive officer, Multi-Chem. "We expect
significant growth in our workforce over the next five years as emphasis
shifts to Canadian reserves.  Don has a proven track record in leadership and
for overcoming production challenges; he is going to be a valuable member of
our team."
    Texas-based Multi-Chem entered the Canadian market in 2004 as a provider
of oilfield production chemicals.  In June of last year, Multi-Chem completed
the purchase of IntegInc and was immediately responsible for the risk
management of 12,000 kilometers of pipelines. Since then, the firm's presence
has grown to include blending plants and distribution warehouses in
Lloydminster, Bonnyville and Stettler.
    A leading production chemical company, Multi-Chem has 50 locations
worldwide and 545 employees. The company's products represent a complete line
of production chemicals and application strategies, including heavy oil
emulsion breakers, H2S scavengers and foam-assisted lift solutions.
    "I am proud to be a part of Multi-Chem and back in Canada," said Hallett.
"I have seen our industry grow in leaps and bounds over the last 25 years as
Canada moves to the spotlight of the continent's production.  Multi-Chem's
unique offerings and commitment to service will be of great value to our
Canadian producers."
