IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Bioenergy Inc., (OTCMarkets:UBRG), a publicly traded independent diversified energy company, that markets and distributes natural gas, propane, petroleum and coal, announced that its subsidiary, NDR Energy Group, located in Charlotte, NC, sold over 1.24 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas for the month October, that will generate millions in sales revenues.

The volume of natural gas sold by NDR Energy is anticipated to be the highest in the Company's history for the month of October, and tops the previous record sales of 1.08 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of gas sold in October of 2011. The 1.24 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of natural gas sold in October represents an increase of 14.29%, or over 155 million cubic feet more than the amount of gas sold during the same month in 2011.

NDR Energy Group's, President and CEO Ken Harris says, "On October 10, 2012 the U.S. Energy Information Administration ("EIA") released its "Short-Term Energy and Winter Fuels Outlook". The EIA projects average household expenditures for heating oil and natural gas will increase by 19 percent and 15 percent, respectively, this winter (October 1 through March 31) compared with last winter. The EIA expects that natural gas consumption will average 69.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in 2012, an increase of 3.1 Bcf/d (4.7 percent) from 2011. The increases in domestic production, theoretically, could lead to long storage and reduced demand by some of our customers. However, the growing diversity of natural gas usage, including for electricity generation, has created more opportunities for us in the marketplace. Domestic natural gas usage is fueling a reduction in reliance on imported fuels. Additionally, NDR is substantially positioned to benefit from this increasingly diverse usage and self-reliance. Our sales team continues to position us for record growth and revenues by emphasizing our strong customer relationships and being nimble relative to the changing marketplace. Our projected record sales in October are a reflection of our dedication, relationships and favorable new dynamics concerning natural gas usage in the US."
