Middle East gas producer selects Matrikon™ alarm management solution

Edmonton, Alberta - August 31, 2006 - Matrikon Inc. (TSX:MTK) today announced that one of the world's largest gas processing companies based in the Middle East has selected Matrikon's alarm management solution for a plant expansion following successful completion of alarm management solutions at other facilities.

The solution includes Matrikon's ProcessGuard for alarm management and archiving, ProcessNet for web-based visualization of real-time alarm and process data systems, ProcessMonitor for advanced analysis and predictive alarming, and extensive consulting services.

Matrikon was pre-qualified for the project due to two key differentiators in its alarm management offering: the ability to collect and archive alarm data from a wide range of control systems and the ability to provide advanced data analysis tools for predictive alarm management to reduce unexpected plant trips and equipment failures.

The solution will be completed in two phases over the next 14 months and may be expanded to accommodate additional plant areas.

The importance of incorporating alarm management solutions in industrial facilities continues to gain recognition. In the United Kingdom, alarm management systems are scrutinized by the Health and Safety Executive, HSE. North America is expected to have similar guidelines as the International Society for Measurement and Control (ISA) rolls out standard industrial practices on alarm management. Insurance companies are increasingly reviewing alarm management practices to ensure they minimize the risk of major equipment failure or environmental damage.
