Terra Energy & Resource Technologies Signs a Services Contract With Transportadora de Gas del Sur
NEW YORK, June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Terra Energy & Resource Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: TEGR), a natural resource exploration technology company, has been granted a services contract by Transportadora de Gas del Sur S.A. (TGS), a major Argentine gas transportation company controlling one of the longest gas pipelines in South America. According to the contract, Terra is to utilize its innovative satellite-based methodology on a limited distance of TGS’s pipeline to identify conditions which could lead to pipeline corrosion. The contract was signed in furtherance and in spirit of the MOU that the companies signed in 2010.
“Although Terra will apply its satellite-based technologies only to a short segment of TGS’s pipeline, we plan to determine certain corrosion and damage causing conditions universal to the whole length of it,” said Dmitry Vilbaum, CEO of Terra Energy & Resource Technologies. “This service contract is an opportunity for Terra to gain a larger contract with TGS analyzing all of its 6,000 to 9,000 kilometers of the pipe.”
Dr. Alexandre Agaian, President of Terra Energy & Resource Technologies, stated: “Most mature pipelines in gas consuming and producing countries require substantial and, as the pipes age, increasing prevention and break-fix budgets. We intend to utilize our innovative satellite-based survey and achieve the level of pipeline diagnostics which would significantly reduce outage risks, maintenance spending, and the need for expensive surface deployed methods. Satellite and remote pipeline surveying is a new business for Terra, and we hope to develop a reliable method, which may lead to its worldwide use for identification of negative pipeline conditions and causes of occasional catastrophic brakes and outages.”
