OMNITEK ENGINEERING APPOINTS SERAPH ENERGY AS MARKETING AGENT IN PENNSYLVANIA
SAN MARCOS, CA — July 13, 2011 — Omnitek Engineering Corporation (OTCQB: OMTK) today announced it has appointed Seraph Energy, LLC as exclusive marketing agent for the company’s diesel-to-natural gas conversion kits in Pennsylvania. Seraph’s primary focus will be on cultivating market growth and facilitating conversions of heavy-duty trucks in this region with significant natural gas reserves.
“With more than 150,000 heavy-duty diesel trucks in the state of Pennsylvania and an abundant source of clean-burning and relatively inexpensive natural gas, the application of Omnitek’s conversion technology offers meaningful benefits to gas suppliers, service providers and end-users. We look forward to working with Seraph Energy to establish a strong presence in this region,” said Werner Funk, president and chief executive officer of Omnitek Engineering Corporation.
“Omnitek’s technology complements energy demands of high-fuel-use industries in Pennsylvania, such as over-the-road trucking and mining – providing relatively inexpensive diesel-to-natural gas engine conversions. The investment to convert will be further enhanced by a rapidly growing infrastructure that offers easy access to natural gas supplied by the Marcellus Shale Gas Field, an energy source estimated to be the second largest natural gas reserve in the world and possibly the single most important economic stimulant in the history of Pennsylvania,” said Ed Agostinelli, general manager of Seraph Energy, LLC.
Industry observers believe that development of the Marcellus Shale deposits promises to be one of the most important opportunities for the United States for the next several decades. “These deposits, combined with existing underground sources of natural gas in the Commonwealth, may very well represent the largest gas reserve in the world,” said Scott Perry, director of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Oil and Gas Management, at a recent meeting of the Sullivan County Energy Task Force.
