ClearSign Contracts with Aera Energy LLC to Demonstrate Next-Generation NOx Emissions Control Technology in California’s San Joaquin Valley

-- Company's technology aims to improve environmental performance while reducing operating costs of steam generators for Enhanced Oil Recovery

SEATTLE, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSign Combustion Corporation (NASDAQ: CLIR), an emerging leader in combustion and emissions control technology for industrial, commercial and utility markets, announced today that it has entered into a Field Test Agreement with Aera Energy LLC to demonstrate and test its proprietary Duplex™ tile combustion technology in oil fields located in Kern County in central California.

The agreement also specifies pricing and delivery conditions that would apply if Aera purchases an agreed upon number of systems if ordered and installed within a specified period of time following successful completion of the demonstration and tests.

Under the terms of the agreement, ClearSign and its subcontracted field engineering team will retrofit an existing steam generator unit with ClearSign's Duplex tile technology to test capability to achieve ultra-low emissions (5 ppm) of nitrogen oxides, or NOx. The Duplex will be paired with an existing forced draft burner and will operate at a heat release of 30 to 60 MMBtu/hr (roughly equivalent to 9 to 18 MW). This will represent the largest scale demonstration under process conditions of the company's Duplex tile technology to date.

ClearSign plans to begin the project before the end of the current quarter.

As testing progresses, ClearSign will provide additional detail regarding their plans to enter the OTSG market, including identifying distribution partners.

About Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)

The so-called "heavy oil" that comprises the oil sand reserves in areas like the San Joaquin Valley and Alberta, Canada is so thick that its viscosity must be reduced in order to recover, process or transport it. Steam is generated in large units called once through steam generators (OTSGs) and then pumped into the oil reservoir to heat the oil to allow it flow more easily.

Worldwide, 96.5% of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is performed via steam generation, of which 65% occurs in North America alone. In the United States, 94% of EOR occurs in California's San Joaquin Valley where 303,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil are produced using 768 OTSGs, each averaging ~ 60 MMBtu/hr. In Canada, virtually all EOR occurs in Northern Alberta where almost four times (1.2 million bpd) the amount of oil is produced using 250 much larger OTSGs, each of which is over ~ 250 MMBtu/hr. Retrofit activity is expected to be a key market driver in the United States where the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District's Reg. 4320 mandates reductions in NOx to 9ppm or below. According to Visiongain, an explosion in new-build activity will characterize the market in Northern Alberta with the number of very large OTSGs expected to almost triple - to over 650 units - by 2023.

Note the existence of this agreement was disclosed during the Company's second quarter results call on August 12, 2014, however this announcement contains new information, including identifying Aera Energy LLC and other details.

About ClearSign Combustion Corporation

ClearSign Combustion Corporation designs and develops technologies that aim to improve key performance characteristics of combustion systems including energy efficiency, emissions control, fuel flexibility and overall cost effectiveness. Our Duplex™ Burner Architecture and Electrodynamic Combustion Control™ (ECC™) platform technologies improve control of flame shape and heat transfer and optimize the complex chemical reactions that occur during combustion in order to minimize harmful emissions.

Legendary Hollywood Action Stars Sylvester Stallone & Arnold Schwarzenegger to Headline Asia’s Only Official VIP Screening for The Expendables 3 as Highlight of the Venetian Macao’s 7th Anniversary Celebration

The Venetian Macao Strengthens Leadership Position as a Top Global Celebrity Destination in Macao Building on Global Partnerships

#1 Integrated Resort in Macao Proves Top Draw for A-List Hollywood

MACAO, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Venetian Macao announced today that it will host Asia's only VIP screening experience for the opening of The Expendables 3 featuring live appearances by the blockbuster film's iconic lead actors, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, on August 22nd in celebration of the integrated resort's 7th anniversary. The most star-powered film franchise in history raises the bar to unprecedented heights with a dream team of global superstars, explosive stunts and mind-boggling weaponry as the mercenary group comes face to face with ruthless arms dealer and Expendables co-founder Conrad Stonebanks whose mission is to wipe out the entire team.

This all-star event bringing renowned Hollywood action heroes to Macao will be the cornerstone of the 7th anniversary celebration for The Venetian Macao, marking another milestone for the integrated resort and further cementing its status as the leading destination in China for global talent.  The weekend celebration will culminate in an anticipated UFC fight event at the property.

"The Venetian Macao is absolutely the place to be in Macao to see the biggest and brightest global superstars of film, music, sports and more," said Edward Tracy, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sands China Ltd. "A star-studded event like the VIP screening of The Expendables 3 provides exceptional entertainment and helps raise the profile of Macao as a world centre of tourism and leisure."

Leading Sands China's drive to increase global awareness of Macao and the Cotai Strip is the company's multi-tiered entertainment strategy, which continues to attract international superstars from the worlds of music, film, television, sports and more.

The Venetian Macao has established itself as a major stop on world tours, delivering top international entertainers including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, The Police, Avril Lavigne, Eason Chan, Jay Chou, and a record-setting concert by the Rolling Stones. In 2013 alone, the property attracted the tours of Rihanna, Alicia Keys and Justin Bieber.

The Venetian Macao captured the world's attention in November of that same year with the championship boxing event pitting Manny Pacquiao against Brandon Rios. Superstar athletes at the integrated resort have included Tiger Woods, Yao Ming, Kobe Bryant, and Roger Federer. And one of the world's most iconic men, David Beckham, has joined forces with The Venetian Macao and Las Vegas Sands' integrated resort property in Singapore as part of a partnership between Beckham Ventures and Las Vegas Sands.

Award shows, film shoots and movie premieres have given visitors a chance to see in person some of the most recognizable faces of film and television. Hollywood converged at The Venetian Macao last October for the Huading Awards with celebrity appearances by Nicole Kidman, Nicolas Cage, Quentin Tarantino, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Irons, Jackie Chan, Sam Worthington and Matthew Perry. The Venetian Macao has rolled out the red carpet to host premieres for films such as My Lucky Star starring Zhang Ziyi and From Vegas to Macau starring Chow Yun Fat and Nicholas Tse -- both of which featured scenes shot at the iconic integrated resort -- as well as for the DreamWorks Animation films Turbo, Mr. Peabody and Sherman and How to Train Your Dragon 2.

In 2013, events broadcast from the resort's 15,000 seat Cotai Arena -- the largest in all of Macao -- reached an audience of nearly 1 billion television viewers in China alone.  The resort hosted dozens of high profile events last year, and the property has become a mecca for the film and television industry, securing a plethora of productions, festivals and premieres

2014 has been equally successful for The Venetian Macao as it continues to demonstrate its proven track record as the leader in attracting the biggest names in entertainment:  In March, Kevin Spacey took the stage for the Venetian Charity Ball along with Anthony Kennedy Shriver.  In April, David Beckham and Ricky Martin were front-and-center at The Venetian Macao for the China Music Awards.  In June, the property hosted a VIP screening for Transformers: Age of Extinction.

The VIP screening for The Expendables 3 will take place in the lavish 1,800 seat Venetian Theatre, where onlookers will be able to catch a glimpse of the glittering array of celebrities as they walk the red carpet at The Venetian Macao.

"Asia, and China especially, are becoming a much bigger part of our business and as their markets continue to expand, it is very important we find ways to bring talent and engage with their audiences in new and exciting ways," said Avi Lerner, Chairman and CEO of Nu Image, Inc. and Millennium Films.

The Venetian Theatre, one of the most luxurious entertainment venues in greater China, is a key player in Sands China's effort to bring the best international entertainment to Macao, hosting star-studded red carpet events -- from movie premieres to renowned movie awards and festivals including the China Music Awards and the Asia Pacific Film Festival. The diversity of entertainment provided by Sands China Ltd. ranges from global superstar performances and world-class sports spectaculars to family-friendly attractions, allowing locals and visitors of all ages a chance to enjoy some of the world's greatest entertainment acts in Macao.
