SCOTT, La., March 8, 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 is expanding chemical sales to U.S. Enercorp, LTD ("U.S. Enercorp") into several field locations in South Texas. In addition to its current chemical sales to U.S. Enercorp, ESP Resources began testing its foamer technology chemicals on several producing gas wells operated by U.S. Enercorp in South Texas. The test wells reported significant increases in daily gas production.  Based on the success of this initial foamer chemical supply program, the Company anticipates increased chemical sales to U.S. Enercorp as the test program expands.  ESP Resources currently supplies production chemicals to U.S. Enercorp in several producing oil and gas fields located in South Texas.

The Company's foamer technologies are specially designed to unload water (dewater) from gas wells. Dewatering is achieved reliably and efficiently to restore and enhance production. Through use of predictive modeling and site-specific formulations, ESP Resources provides effective, economic solutions for maximizing gas production efficiency, thereby increasing profits from declining gas wells.

In addition, U.S. Enercorp has permitted several new drilling locations in the Eagle Ford formation trend area where ESP Resources currently supplies production chemicals to customers such as Pioneer Natural Resources Company and Cinco Resources, Inc.  The additional chemical supply will enhance the operating efficiency of ESP Resources' South Texas service region.

"U.S. Enercorp has been a significant customer of ESP Resources for some time now.  We currently supply a complete line of production chemicals to them in several producing oil and gas fields in South Texas from our service region located in Mission, Texas," stated David Dugas, President of ESP Resources. "Their implementation of more of our chemical technologies and services is considered a vote of confidence of the performance of our foamer technology on their operated wells," Mr. Dugas stated.
