ESP Resources Completes Chemical Testing of 100+ Well Program for Major Independent Operator in South Texas

LAFAYETTE, La., Oct. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ESP Resources, Inc. ("ESP" or the "Company") (OTCBB:ESPI), an oil and gas services company, has recently concluded testing and sampling of 100+ wells in South Texas within close proximity to its district office in Victoria, Texas. The Company will begin the delivery of production chemicals to the operator of the wells starting this month of October. The expected increase in revenue for the Victoria district is anticipated to exceed $600,000 per year.

Through the use of ESP's chemical technology, the Company expects to assist the operator in increasing production from the capture and separation of additional hydrocarbons from the oil and gas wells. ESP also anticipates a reduction to the operator in the per barrel equivalent treatment costs of the produced oil, gas, and water products.

David Dugas, President & CEO stated, "Our customers have high expectations during their testing so that they can select and trust the best petrochemical supplier for their wells. As expected, our superior chemistry clearly edged out our competition. This operator also has additional fields located in Texas and Louisiana that we anticipate testing before the end of the year."
