Reaching Out to Mexico: Providing Rig Safety and Zero Spill Systems Training

    EDMONTON, March 14 /CNW/ - In February, Katch Kan Limited welcomed four
of Matyep's offshore Supervisors from Villahermosa and Ciudad del Carmen to
participate in a one-week Rig Safety and Zero Spill systems training program
in Edmonton, Alberta.
    This particular program offered by Katch Kan Limited was customized to
directly address the regional drilling and exploration challenges experienced
in Mexico and included classroom components and field installation/analysis
    In total, 16 on-site professionals from Mexico have gone through the
program since the two year partnership between Katch Kan Limited and
Materiales y Equipo Petrolero S.A. de C.V. (Matyep); the company's exclusive
distributor in Mexico.
    The first group to take this training in August 2006 traveled out to a
rig installation in Willow Creek (just outside Hinton, Alberta) to observe how
the Zero Spill System(TM) applied and functioned in the oilfield.
    Typically, the Rig Safety and Zero Spill systems training program
balances practicality with theory by getting participants to take a hands-on
approach; installing, removing and testing personnel safety and fluid
containment equipment on a 20' simulated rig at the Katch Kan(TM) training
facility. Afterward, participants are sent to a training rig in Nisku, Alberta
where they go through the ins and outs of the Rig Safety and Zero Spill
systems in operation.
    Latin America Regional Manager for Katch Kan Limited emphasized, "Those
who have taken the training have voiced their excitement because they see the
potential for crew safety and environmental protection."
    Katch Kan Limited continues to work with Matyep within the Villahermosa,
Ciudad del Carmen, Reynosa and Veracruz regions of Mexico; optimizing their
land and offshore operations with regards to improved rig safety and
environmental protection/stewardship.
