NAPLES, Fla. -- Industrial Nanotech (Other OTC:INTK.PK - News), a company that specializes in nanotechnology innovation and product development, announced that Brazilian Oil and Gas giant, Petrobras, has formerly requested specifications for an application of the Company's thermally insulating and corrosion resistant coating, Nansulate, for a pipeline project consisting of one hundred and five miles of eighteen inch diameter pipe to be constructed in Brazil.

Following a series of meetings between Industrial Nanotech's representative in Brazil and Petrobras, the oil company requested that the Company's CEO and inventor of Nansulate, Stuart Burchill meet with several of its senior engineers at Petrobras' headquarters in Rio de Janeiro. Additionally, Industrial Nanotech had provided in-depth technical information and performance data prior to the scheduling of the meeting.

"Our recent meetings with Petrobras, including the visit by Mr. Burchill to their offices in Brazil, have culminated in this pipeline project being chosen for the utilization of Nansulate. Additional projects discussed include tankers, existing refineries, oil platforms, and two new state-of-the-art refineries that Petrobras will be building," stated Industrial Nanotech's VP of Operations and Marketing, Francesca Crolley.

"Application specifications will be provided to and reviewed by their engineers on a project by project basis and will form the general application guidelines for Nansulate throughout Petrobras' operations. While we are in the process of outlining a specific timeline for the delivery of Nansulate for this project, we anticipate that it will begin in 2007," added Ms. Crolley.

Petrobras, short for Petroleo Brasileiro S.A., is a government-owned Brazilian oil company that is one of the fifteen largest oil companies in the world, leading the oil and gas sector in the development of the most advanced deepwater and ultra-deep water technology for oil production. The company controls oil and power industries assets and related business activities in 16 nations throughout Africa, North America, South America and Asia.
