TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Petrolympic Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: PCQ) ("Petrolympic" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Quebec Finance Minister, M. Carlos Leitao, confirmed during the Quebec budget speech the creation of an investment fund in the amount of $1.25 billion for the development of the hydrocarbon and mining sectors in the province of Quebec.
This new fund will be managed by Ressources Quebec, a division of Investissement Quebec. Of the $1.25 billion, $500 million will be reserved for the development of the Northern Plan and $750 million will be made available to support the development of the hydrocarbon and mining sectors in southern Quebec. The Minister also announced the creation of a vast program to switch from the use of heavy oil to cleaner natural gas and he also said the Province intends to develop the use of LNG on large scale.
The Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, M. Pierre Arcand, further stated that exploration for hydrocarbons in the province of Quebec is economically and environmentally sensible and must be encouraged considering that the province imports more than $14 billion worth of oil and gas every year.
Mendel Ekstein, president of Petrolympic, commented: "We are really pleased and believe those announcements show the real will of the Quebec government to develop a strong and sustainable industry in the province and we are convinced we can be part of it with our conventional plays."
As stated in a previous press release dated April 11, 2014 and April 14, 2014 the discovery by Petrolympic and its partner Squatex Energy and Resources Inc. of a conventional natural gas reservoir on Squatex' property in the Lower St. Lawrence, is encouraging and confirms the hydrocarbon potential of the area.
Petrolympic and its partner are now designing a drill program to delineate the three hydrocarbon-bearing zones identified in the Masse No.1 core hole and are preparing an exploration program to further document and validate other prospective structures identified within the Property based on the same proprietary seismic dataset, in a climate favorable to the hydrocarbon exploration in Quebec.
Petrolympic also owns a 100% interest in two exploration permits in the same area, referred to as the Matapedia and the Mitis properties. Several conventional plays and exploration leads have been identified in these permits.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
