Petroteq Energy Launches Communication Strategy
STUDIO CITY, CA, Feb. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Petroteq Energy Inc. (“Petroteq” or the “Company”) (TSXV: PQE; OTCQX: PQEFF; Frankfurt: A2DYWC), a company focused on the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the energy industry, today announced the engagement of strategic media and marketing partners.
The Company is pleased to be working with NetworkNewsWire, a financial news and content distribution company, and Stockhouse, Canada’s leading financial portal and one of North America’s largest small cap investor communities, to help develop deeper industry and investor awareness. Petroteq has also agreed to collaborate with Recruiter.com, a leading online global recruiting service provider, through which the Company intends to access thousands of energy industry executives that may generate inbound inquiries to the unique technologies Petroteq has developed.
“It is critical for Petroteq to expand our audience of investors, as we continue to make significant progress with the construction of our extraction plant at Asphalt Ridge,” said Petroteq CEO, Alex Blyumkin. “We have selected partners whose networks we expect to be able to leverage in order to reach the broadest possible audience to whom we can communicate our development and the scope of our business.”
Assembly of Petroteq’s heavy oil extraction plant in Utah is proceeding ahead of schedule. The facility is expected to be the first such operation in the country to be powered by Petroteq’s blockchain-based supply chain management system, being developed by PetroBLOQ, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.
“We are excited to move forward with our plans to leverage our proprietary technologies as Asphalt Ridge nears its scheduled opening,” continued Blyumkin, “and to share the significant potential of PetroBloq, our blockchain-based system, in development, to create sustainable efficiencies for the oil and gas industry.”
