Garneau Inc. introduces Reelpipe

    TSX - GAR

    NISKU, AB, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - Garneau Inc. (GAR:TSX) introduces its new
Flexible Pressure Pipe, "Reelpipe" developed for Canadian oilfield production
applications for oil emulsion, gas gathering and water disposal.
    Garneau "Reelpipe" is a high strength, lightweight, corrosion-resistant,
robust, flexible pressure pipe developed for the petroleum industry. The
product is made from thermoplastic and composite materials, which eliminate
corrosion and reduce weight. This pipe has the structural strength and rugged
characteristics of steel, yet is flexible and produced in continuous lengths.
It can be installed more quickly and easily; provides a lower cost, and a
superior alternative to traditional piping materials.

    Most Reliable pipeline system at the lowest installed cost.

    Garneau "Reelpipe" provides the lowest installed cost pressure piping
solution, because it can be installed faster and quicker with less equipment
and manpower, especially where conditions are difficult.
    Garneau "Reelpipe" is internally and externally corrosion-resistant with
thick HDPE inner and outer layers. Chemical inhibitor programs are eliminated.
Flow properties and abrasion resistance are superior to steel pipe. Plant and
Equipment trials are expected to commence fourth quarter 2008, with product
availability ready for first quarter of 2009. "Reelpipe" will be manufactured
out of the Camrose Facility, in addition to Garneau's existing Pipe Coating
production lines.
    Glen Garneau, Garneau Inc. CEO, commented, "This new pressure piping
technology continues Garneau's tradition of providing quality
corrosion-resistant piping solutions to the Canadian oil and gas industry for
over 30 years."
