Vladimir Podlipsky, Company's CEO stated, "Our Clean Oil Recovery Technology (CORT) has unlocked the enormous opportunity to uncover global oil reserves, thus achieving energy independence and economic expansion in surface mineable oil sands resources in the US and Internationally." Mr. Podlipsky continued, "these licensing agreements are testaments to the tremendous technical and engineering achievements made by Petroteq in recent years. The licensing model is an important component of the Petroteq business model allowing Petroteq to leverage its proprietary technologies and operating techniques to participate in value created through investment by other companies and strategic investors."
"In working with Petroteq for the past 5 years, the CORT technology is unique and highly effective. It fits our long-term investment strategy extremely well," stated Anthony Cantone, President of Cantone Asset Management, LLC.

Petroteq has no plans or intentions to engage in any defensive or other tactics that could prejudice the Viston Offer and in particular satisfaction of the conditions to the Viston Offer without the consent of Viston United Swiss AG ("Viston").
About Petroteq Energy Inc.
Petroteq is a clean technology company focused on the development, implementation and licensing of a patented, environmentally safe and sustainable technology for the extraction and reclamation of heavy oil and bitumen from oil sands and mineable oil deposits. The versatile technology can be applied to both water-wet deposits and oil-wet deposits - outputting high-quality oil and clean sand.
Petroteq believes that its technology can produce a relatively sweet heavy crude oil from deposits of oil sands at Asphalt Ridge without requiring the use of water, and therefore without generating wastewater which would otherwise require the use of other treatment or disposal facilities which could be harmful to the environment. Petroteq's process is intended to be a more environmentally friendly extraction technology that leaves clean residual sand that can be sold or returned to the environment, without the use of tailings ponds or further remediation.
