VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Gen III Oil Corp. (“Gen III” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:GIII) is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated February 28, 2017, it has completed its lease negotiations with Parkland Refining Ltd. (“Parkland”), resulting in a long term twenty-year lease for a portion of its property in Bowden, Alberta (the “Lease”). Gen III intends to construct its new motor oil re-refinery on the existing process pads at Parkland’s Bowden facility.
The Lease relates to a portion of Parkland’s Bowden property that includes access to existing utilities, roads, storm water and settlement pond systems, storage tanks, and rail and truck handling facilities. The site location and existing infrastructure provide the Company with direct logistics access, significant capital cost savings, and an expedited path to market by virtue of developing an existing industrial property. In addition, Parkland will provide storage tankage and terminal services to Gen III on a fee for services basis.
The Company intends to commence construction of the Bowden re-refinery in the summer of 2018 with commissioning and startup of the facility planned for Q1 2019. The Company’s management is now actively engaged in seeking proposals from internationally recognized Engineering, Procurement and Construction (“EPC”) firms with the intent of contracting a guaranteed lump sum turnkey price for construction for its Bowden, Alberta re-refinery. In addition, the Company is pursuing the necessary permits for the decommissioning and new construction work.
Company CEO Greg Clarkes stated, “Execution of this lease has been of prime importance to Gen III and we are extremely pleased to be working together with Parkland, a world-renowned leader in the industry. Together with the recent FEED agreement signed with Stantec Consulting Ltd., the Company is making significant headway into moving forward with development of the facility.”
