BEIJING, Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- LianDi Clean Technology Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: LNDT), ("LianDi" or the "Company"), a provider of clean technology, downstream flow equipment, engineering services and software to China's leading petroleum and petrochemical companies, today provided a business update.

The following chart reflects LianDi's backlog through the first three quarters of fiscal year ending March 31, 2011.

Backlog 9 months ended December 31, 2010 9 months ended December 31, 2009 % Change Y-O-Y
Equipment $36 million $26 million 38.5%
Software $1 million $0 million --
Services $3 million $0 million --
Total $40 million $26 million +53.8%

Total orders during the first nine months of fiscal year ending March 31, 2011 were $85 million, an increase of 86.4% compared to the same period last year. Equipment orders grew by 86.2% to $72.8 million.

"We continue to benefit from the strong growth in spending by the large domestic oil and gas and petrochemical companies," stated Mr. Jianzhong Zuo, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Company. "The growth in orders and contract renewals reflect the successes we have achieved to date. As our customers' needs expand and become more complex, they have consolidated more of their spending among a smaller number of trusted suppliers, which has benefited our company significantly."

Mr. Zuo continued, "Our collaboration with leading global suppliers and broad portfolio of cutting-edge products enhances our ability to drive business value and high performance for our clients. These strategic partnerships with some of the largest organizations in the oil and gas industry around the world allow us to leverage proven technology and industry solutions to optimize our services and offer our clients complete solutions to meet their business challenges. By complementing this with proprietary software and additional products and services, we seek to drive incremental revenue and earnings for 2011."

LianDi recently signed master distribution agreements with new and existing customers which expands the Company's ability to bid for a broader range of projects while meeting more of its customers needs.
