HOUSTON, Dec. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Energy Corp. (OTCBB:LBYE) ("Liberty" or "the Company") is extremely pleased to announce completion and production of 3 worked-over wells on its Lockhart lease.

The Company initially announced its well re-entry program in September, 2010. Over the past several months the Company has been making consistent progress on its multi-phased well re-entry program on the lease. The first phase of the five-stage work-over has included re-entering 3 wells and the drilling out of 1 well on the lease. The four wells in question are located on 3 tracts of land know as the Alexander A, housing 1 re-entry well called the #2, the Alexander B, housing 2 shut-in wells called the #1 and #3 and the Anton, housing 1 shut in well called the Anton #1.

The Company is now extremely pleased to confirm that 3 wells located on the Alexander A and B have been successfully worked-over, fully equipped and are now producing. The Company has spent the last week finalizing work to the general site which included installing new motors on the wells, running 50' of overhead lines to a well and installing a meter on the Alexander A well.

"We are delighted with the progress on the lease and to have three wells in production. The revenues generated from these wells will be greatly welcomed and will help cover overheads in addition to funding new projects. We are currently considering various options to further improve this asset and plan to move ahead with further drilling and development imminently. Our options for this lease at the moment include drilling the Alexander A #2 well down to target depth to produce from the prolific Edwards shale play, re-enter another well and drill down to target depth or alternatively drill a new well to target depth. We are considering all options available while also looking at potential new projects. It is crucial we invest wisely in order to grow shareholder value and increase revenues," commented Ian Spowart, CEO of Liberty Energy Corp.
