TSX.V SYMBOL: GNO
OTCBB SYMBOL: GNOLF.OB
EDMONTON, AB, May 16, 2006 – Genoil Inc. is pleased to offer this update on our MOU, with respect to moving the contract forward in China between Genoil and the Hebei Zhongie Petrochemical Company. Hebei Zhongie Petrochemical Company is planning to be in Edmonton for meetings with Genoil on the status of the 30,000 BPD upgrader for their refinery in China between mid and late June. A delegation from the Hebei Zhongie Petrochemical Company that will include Mr. Mryu (President), Mr. Guocheng Yu (Vice President), Mr. Yongjun Zheng (Technical Director) and Mr. Baoguang Li (Project Manager) to discuss outstanding issues with goal being to roll the MOU into a contract for the 30,000 BPD facility in China.
There will also be a delegation from CNPC East China Design Institute that will include Mr. Xiao (VP and General Manager) and one other process engineer to discuss implementation of an agreement where the Institute will purchase the process package and use of the Genoil GHU patent under a fee structure to be negotiated for oil producers in China. The CNPC Institute is interested in using the Genoil GHU technology throughout China and is responsible for bringing and licensing new technologies for use in China. CNPC then can license the technology for companies such as PetroChina and SINOPEC who are also interested in the possible application of the GHU technology for their installations as well. The utilization of the Genoil GHU technology in China will allow the Chinese oil companies to process sour high sulphur crude and upgrade the API improving the quality and quantity of fuel products, such as produced by the Hebei Zhongie Refinery.
The Genoil GHU technology is environmentally friendly in that it largely eliminates the parts of the oil that produce greenhouse gases, such as sulfur and nitrogen, and avoids the production of coke that is surplus in China. The Chinese government wants to see that coke or carbon, converted into light oil, which the Genoil process accomplishes. This light oil will be used to make jet fuel, diesel and gasoline. The Chinese government does not want this coke or carbon dumped in contaminated waste dumps as is done in many parts of the world, thereby wasting a valuable energy resource. We are looking forward to the delegations from Hebei Zhongie Petrochemical and CPNC visiting Genoil in Edmonton and furthering our project in China.
