Production Enhancement Group announces termination of Middle East joint venture

    HOUSTON, TX, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - Production Enhancement Group, Inc. ("PEG" or
the "Company") (TSX: WIS) today announced that PEG has allowed its joint
venture agreement with Al Qahtani Maritime & Oil Field Services Co. ("Al
Qahtani"), announced on April 16, 2007, to expire of its own terms. The
purpose of the joint venture was to deploy PEG's patented WISE(R)
multifunction coil tubing well intervention systems in the Middle East.
    Don B. Cobb, President and Chief Operating Officer of WISE Well
Intervention Services, Inc., PEG's operating subsidiary, said "In the final
analysis, the parties were unable to reach mutually agreeable terms under
which to implement the joint venture. As well, at this stage it makes more
sense for PEG to focus on exploiting growth opportunities that we see much
closer to home. We continue to believe that WISE Well Intervention Services
can play a key role in the Middle East, and we will explore alternative
avenues to penetrate that market at the appropriate time."
