SCOTT, La., Dec. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ESP Resources, Inc. (OTCBB:ESPI) (the "Company" or "ESP Resources"), a manufacturer, blender, distributor, and marketer of specialty chemicals and analytical services to the oil and gas industry, announced the expansion of chemical products and services to a major independent exploration and production company in the Eagle Ford Shale, whose lease acreage covers in excess of 300,000 acres.

The Company began supplying processing chemicals to the operator in October of this year for the newly completed Eagle Ford Shale wells. The operator currently has seven rigs that are drilling wells in the Eagle Ford Shale and has plans to double the drilling fleet during 2011. ESP Resources currently supplies several groups of production chemicals to eight wells that the operator has completed in the last four months, and the operator should complete four additional wells in the next month. In addition, the Company provides gas processing and condensate stabilization chemicals to the operator's central gathering plants (CGP). The operator plans to drill in excess of 1,000 wells in the next five years that will be flowing through 200 CGPs.

"The variations in the sedimentary rock in these shale formations create a significant amount of unpredictability in the completion and production process," stated David Dugas, President of ESP Resources. "Through the expanded use of our chemicals and services, this operator and other operators we supply are able to achieve more predictable and effective production techniques. We have increased sales to this customer an average of 20% per month for the last four months and expect our sales to more than double in 2011 compared to 2010," Dugas stated.
