TORR Canada Awarded Engineering Contract by Worley Parsons and BP Exploration

    MONTREAL, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - TORR Canada Inc. (TSX: TOR) ("TCI" or the
"Company"), dedicated to providing process solutions to the Oil and Gas
industry, today announced that its American business unit, ProSep
Technologies, Inc, has been awarded a contract by Worley Parsons to provide
services to BP Exploration (Alaska). The initial portion of the contract is
for engineering and design services representing approximately US$850,000 and
could be worth $4.95 million should the contract include the supply of gas
separation equipment.
    Under the terms of the agreement, TCI will immediately commence servicing
BP Exploration's WRDx Gas Partial Processing ("GPP project"), located in
Prudhoe Bay. The potential second portion of the contract, for the delivery in
the spring of 2009 of gas separation equipment for produced reservoir fluids,
will be determined within the next few months.
    "I am very proud of our American business unit which is experiencing fast
growth and continues to win customers' confidence and is increasingly
attracting the attention of major producers such as BP Exploration and
important oilfield services companies such as Worley Parsons," said Jacques L.
Drouin, President and CEO of TORR Canada Inc. "We have highly experienced
engineers in our Houston-based operation and I am confident that both Worley
Parsons and BP Exploration will be very satisfied with the results of this
first phase."
    Prudhoe Bay, North America's largest oil field, has experienced a steady
decline in production since reaching its peak in 1987," said Lew Mologne,
President of ProSep Technologies and General Manager of the American business
unit. "We are extremely excited to have been selected by Worley Parsons as our
expertise in the treatment of gas will contribute to BP Exploration's efforts
to increase reservoir production at the GPP project."
    With this contract, excluding the potential balance mentioned above, TORR
Canada's sales backlog to date reaches $23 million.
