Opportunities

THERE ARE UNLIMITED OPPORTUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD FOR PETROTEQ'S ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY OIL SANDS EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY.

There are many countries throughout the world with significant oil sands and oil shale deposits, most of which are undeveloped due to the lack of an effective and safe extraction technology.

THE WORLD HAS SIGNIFICANT OIL SANDS DEPOSITS

Canada 174,942,000
Venezuela 58,038,246
Kazakhstan 42,142,785
Russia 34,000,000
United States 21,600,000
China 5,970,000
Nigeria 575,826
Angola 466,483
Indonesia 423,341
Italy 300,957
Madagascar 221,703
Azerbaijan 125,395

Petroteq will involve itself in negotiations to establish licensing and joint venture opportunities around the world where significant oil sands/shale deposits are found. These licensing agreements will incorporate up front licensing fees and production royalty revenue streams as a valuable source of revenue for the Company.

Petroteq has already entered into discussions with various entities representing several of these countries interested in developing their oil sands/shale resources. Several samples of oil sands feedstock from China have been successfully tested in a laboratory environment with similar extraction levels as Petroteq has experienced at their Utah facilities. (99.9% hydrocarbon extraction) Grab samples of oil shale deposits from Jordan have also been tested in Petroteq's laboratory with similar results. Several American mining companies are currently involved in negotiations with Petroteq for possible joint venture opportunities.
