FOX-TEK Expands Into Malaysia with Pipeline Monitoring Contract Agreement with Major Southeast Asia Oil Company to Track Corrosion

    TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

    TORONTO, June 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc.
("FOX-TEK"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and marketer of patented non-intrusive
sensing systems, today announced the completion of the installation of a
PinPoint corrosion monitoring system for a major Southeast Asia oil company.
The contract involves the installation and ongoing remote monitoring of a
10 inch hydrocarbon liquids pipeline that transports offshore production to a
gas plant in the province of Terengganu, Malaysia.
    Eric Kubian, Director of EFM Technology for PinPoint FOX-TEK Inc. said,
"This sale of our PinPoint system in Malaysia shows we can help major oil
companies assess their pipelines more accurately, more easily, while
eliminating many of the costs associated with inspecting remote sites.
Mr. Kubian continued, "There are many such opportunities here in Malaysia, and
in other regions, where water and other corrosive elements can not be entirely
separated from the hydrocarbon liquids and a common problem results in which
the connecting pipelines suffer corrosion damage. Our remote monitoring
station means we can track the problem areas and analyze the data from our
base in Canada or from anywhere in the world."
    Essam Zaghloul, FOX-TEK's president and CEO continued, "No other system
provides this capability for effective, remote, on-demand monitoring to help
prevent pipeline failure. We look forward to furthering our relationship with
this company and building on our ability to successfully address the needs of
all of our customers."
