Telvent to provide its Information Technology for a cross-border pipeline in China

August 9, 2005

Madrid, August 9, 2005 – Telvent GIT S.A. (NASDAQ: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, has been selected by PetroChina Company Limited (PetroChina) to design, install and commission a Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for the Alashankou-Dushenzi crude oil pipeline. The total contract value is USD1.65 million.

The Telvent Unix-based SCADA control system, known as OASyS, being deployed will consist of a control centre, three Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), and two remote terminal unit stations, and will integrate with a third party, advanced pipeline application software package. The system will remotely monitor and control the 252-kilometre Alashankou-Dushanzi crude oil pipeline, located in China’s Xingjian province and extending to the border of Kazakhstan, where it connects to the Kazakhstani Atasu-Alashankou pipeline.

China’s energy needs are growing rapidly, driven by recent expansion of the country’s infrastructure. Accordingly, the Oil and Natural Gas holdings in Xinjiang and Central Asia have become a national focus. The Alashankou-Dushenzi pipeline will be the first international cross-border pipeline connection to bring badly needed crude oil to China. As Manuel Sánchez Ortega, Telvent Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said “This contract highlights the strength of our core energy sector business in the fast growing China market. Our technology will capture real-time information for PetroChina that will be critical to the successful operation of the pipeline now and in the future.”

PetroChina is one of the largest companies in the People’s Republic of China in terms of sales and is engaged in a broad range of activities related to petroleum and natural gas, including: exploration, development and production of crude oil and natural gas; refining, transportation, storage and marketing, including import and export, of crude oil and petroleum products; production and sale of chemical products; and transmission, marketing and sale of natural gas.

Telvent GIT SA (NASDAQ: TLVT), the Global RealTime IT Company, specializes in high value-added solutions in four specific industrial sectors (Energy, Traffic, Transport and Environment) in Europe, North America, Latin America and China. (
