HOUSTON, Feb. 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Energy Corp. (OTCBB:LBYE) ("Liberty" or "the Company") is pleased to announce a further draw-down from its equity financing agreement.

The Company has received the draw-down under the terms of its equity investment agreement that does not include any debt financing and facilitates funding of up to $8,000,000.

The funds have been drawn to support the final phase of work on the Dahlstrom #1 well, Texas, in addition to ongoing operational activities.

The Company announced that after evaluating a number of different options with various consultants, it has scheduled a cement squeeze to be performed on the Dahlstrom #1 well. This procedure is designed to plug the lower zones of the well with cement. The well is then re-perforated at a higher interval, isolating the higher productive perforation, and blocking any water from encroaching into the productive zone.

"We are delighted to have the continued support and financial backing of our investors. These additional funds have allowed us to implement the final phase of work to the Dahlstrom #1 well. We believe that this well should perform significantly above originally forecasted levels once the work has been completed and will positively contribute towards overheads and operating expenses. With the continued support of the financing agreement, we hope to proceed with developing new and existing assets whilst maintaining zero debt on our balance sheet," commented Daniel Martinez-Atkinson, CFO of Liberty Energy Corp.
