HOUSTON, Sept. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Energy Corp. (OTCBB:LBYE) ("Liberty" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that work has commenced on the Lockhart Lease, Caldwell County, Texas.

The company is pleased to confirm that it has begun phase one of the five stage work-over program. The four wells in question are located on 3 tracts of land known as the Alexander A, housing (1) re-entry well called the #2, the Alexander B, housing 2 shut-in wells called the #1 & #3 and the Anton, housing (1) shut-in well called the Anton #1.

The company, through the operator, has held discussions with the landowners to discuss the plans to develop the lease. After clearing the areas around the wells the valves on the #1 & #3 wells were opened and had strong gas pressure with signs of oil. A drum, hose and pump were then set up, and the wells produced gallons of oil within minutes, and have subsequently continued to produce.

The company has now met the requirements to hold lease through production and have received inspection visits from the landowners and the Railroad Commission.

"We are pleased to be getting this work underway and are confident from the initial stages of work completed, that we will get good results from these wells. This work has secured our leases, and we now anticipate a key revenue stream for the company for years to come," commented Daniel Martinez-Atkinson, CFO of Liberty Energy Corp.
