Three Additional Systems Installed for Oil & Gas Customer in Alberta

TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

TORONTO, Dec. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc. ("FOX-TEK"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and manufacturer of patented non-intrusive sensing systems, today announced three additional completed sales of PinPoint systems for an existing Calgary-based oil & gas customer. These sales bring the total number of systems purchased by this operating company to six.

The three systems were installed on an operational 24 inch boiler feed water pipeline following the recent discovery of a number of internal corrosion defects identified by inline inspection. The monitored locations were selected at two separate excavation sites by the operating company based upon the best risk and inspection data available. One of the project goals will be to evaluate the effectiveness of a chemical corrosion inhibitor being used to mitigate corrosion within the pipeline based on corrosion observed within the monitoring areas.

All three installations were performed within one week by FOX-TEK's Field Service teams in North Central Alberta. All sites are solar-powered and transmitting data using a cellular connection. Actionable data is then presented to the customer online using FOX-TEK's secure DMAT Web service.
