Tetra Technologies, Inc. Acquires Exclusive License for Mass Transfer Technology.

THE WOODLANDS, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 6, 1998--TETRA Technologies, Inc ("TETRA" or the "Company") (NYSE-TTI) today announced that it has acquired an exclusive license (in certain applications) for a mass transfer technology patented by RevTech Industries, Inc, Houston, Texas. The license exclusivity relates to use in manufacturing bromine and in the manufacture or reclamation of drilling, workover and completion fluids for oil and gas industry use from brine fluids. This exclusive license was granted for worldwide applications.

Allen T. McInnes, chief executive officer, stated, "This high-rate and high-efficiency technology could substantially reduce costs in our completion fluids and PayZone(R) Drill-In Fluids areas. Additionally, this technology could help optimize the production of bromine from our Magnolia, Arkansas assets, or from any known commercial bromine source. We would hope to incorporate this technology into our development plans for Magnolia or other bromine production areas around the world. TETRA anticipates that it will immediately begin to evaluate the best commercial use of the RevTech technology and the associated equipment, known as Revex(TM) Tube Assembly Units."

TETRA is a specialty inorganic chemical company selling products, process technologies and services to targeted industries, especially oil and gas, agriculture and the environmental market.
