SCOTT, La., Feb. 1, 2011 (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 today that it has begun providing production chemicals to three recently completed wells for Cinco Resources, Inc. ("Cinco") in the Hawkville field of the Eagle Ford Shale trend. The pipeline requirements necessitate a minimum level of contaminates for the three wells. The Company's chemical supply program is designed to reduce the contaminants below that level to facilitate the sale of the oil and gas produced from each of the wells without the use of additional sweetening plant facilities.

"While this work with Cinco begins with a relatively small number of wells, the chemical usage will be robust and provide a considerable impact to our sales in our Mission, Texas service region," stated David Dugas, President of ESP Resources. "We expect Cinco to be a great partner and anticipate our top line in our Mission district to increase over 30% in 2011 from this new business based on our current run rate. We believe that Cinco has sufficient leased acreage in their portfolio to drill in excess of 10 wells in the Eagle Ford Shale trend and that they are continuing their drilling activity as of this date," Mr. Dugas stated.
