IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 23, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Universal Bioenergy Inc. (Pink Sheets:UBRG), a publicly traded alternative energy company, announced today, that it is has signed an agreement with ProGas Energy Services Inc., of Texas.

The agreement is a joint venture between "Texas Gulf Oil & Gas," Universal's new subsidiary, and ProGas, to jointly develop a newly discovered or recently discovered oil and gas field located in Texas's Gulf Coast natural trend, in Jim Wells County Texas. The plans include potentially developing up to 110 oil and gas wells from this field. Three initial wells have already been drilled, are producing oil and gas, and should bring immediate profit to Universal. ProGas Energy has developed over 2000 oil and gas wells, and have over 200 years of combined experience in the oil and gas industry. According to ProGas Energy, the estimated reserves of the field, are over 20 million barrels of oil, (an estimated value of $1.82 billion at today's NYMEX price of $91.48 per barrel), and 17 billion cubic feet (bcf), of gas.

"This is another major step for the Company, as it allows Universal to acquire natural gas from the ground, for a small fraction of the purchase costs that it currently pays for gas. Universal's exploration costs for its share of the field is estimated to be less than 10% of the current NYMEX price for November, which is $4.14 per mcf, allowing Universal to earn a 90% gross profit, or over $3.74 per mcf at current prices, on the spread of gas that it owns in the field. Universal will be able to market the gas produced, that it owns, as well as the gas of the other industry partners in the development of the field, such as ProGas Energy, who have offered Universal the right to market their gas," says Universal's Sr. Vice President Solomon Ali.
