Seair and North American Energy Partners Inc. to collaborate on oil sands
tailings projects


EDMONTON, July 19 /CNW/ - Seair Inc. (SDS:TSX Venture Exchange) is pleased to announce that it has been chosen by a major energy-services firm to pursue tailing and remediation projects in the oil sands region.

Seair is partnering with North American Energy Partners Inc. (NAEP) (NOA:TSX, NOA:NYSE), to bid on contracts for the treatment of water waste resulting from oil-sand production through NAEP's Tailings and Environmental Construction division.

This represents an important opportunity for Seair. New Alberta regulations mandate stricter requirements for water remediation. The industry will spend hundreds of millions treating tailings this year alone. Seair's technology has been proven to treat waste water more cheaply and efficiently than existing methods.

"We believe that teaming up with North American Tailings and Environmental, an established player, will enhance our credibility and our ability to get sales in this big and growing market," said Harold Kinasewich, Seair CEO. Warren Borysuk, General Manager of NAEP's Tailings and Environmental Construction division says "Seair brings a unique technology that enhances our ability to provide a complete tailings management service to the oil sands industry."

Seair is also pleased to announce it has engaged Uptick Communications Inc. ("Uptick") to perform investor and public relations services. In connection with this engagement Seair has granted Uptick 30,000 incentive stock options exercisable at $0.85 per share with a 5 year expiry.

About Seair

Seair develops proprietary equipment that diffuses gases into liquids. The introduction of oxygen, ozone or carbon dioxide results in a supersaturated solution, that meets environmental standards and customer needs. Seair's patented technologies can produce extremely small bubbles which are more efficient than other diffusion technologies. Our technologies are used in a variety of applications in the oil and gas industry. We also service customers in such diverse fields as wastewater treatment, pulp and paper, food processing, aquaculture, agriculture/horticulture, sterilization, golf course irrigation and pond treatment and animal enhancement.

Seair is a leading developer of patent-protected diffusion and sterilization technologies, which allow for the efficient diffusion of gases into liquids, thereby facilitating numerous applications in a wide variety of industries, including wastewater treatment, pulp and paper production, food processing, aquaculture, agriculture/horticulture, sterilization, golf course irrigation and pond treatment, animal enhancement and oil and gas. Seair's primary focus is developing and selling equipment that diffuses gases, such as oxygen, ozone or carbon dioxide, into a liquid, resulting in a supersaturated solution. The major difference between Seair's and others' diffusion technologies is Seair's ability to achieve extremely small bubble size, which in turn allows for the mass transfer of gas to fluid. The result is a stable condition, where gases remain in solution for extended periods of time, leading to increased productivity and lower operating costs. Seair provides diffusion-enhanced portable wastewater treatment plants through its subsidiary, Seair Septic.
