SCOTT, La., May 24, 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 that it has signed a Reseller and License Agreement ("Agreement") with a Bahrain-based petroleum trade company, BPT Americas, LLC ("BPT "), as the sole authorized reseller of all of the Company's petrochemical products in the Middle East, including Northern Africa and Russia.

BPT, which maintains a representative office in Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain, supplies materials to clients within the represented areas in the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, corrosion protection, power generating, pipeline construction and refining industries. BPT has extensive relationships with several of the national oil companies located in the Middle East and Northern Africa.

The Agreement is for an initial term of one year, with a five year renewal period. Through this Agreement, testing is already underway of ESP Resources' entire petrochemical product line to Tatweer Petroleum-Bahrain Field Development, a joint operating entity between a major oil and gas exploration company and the National Oil and Gas Authority of Bahrain. One of ESP Resources' senior field technicians has been stationed in Bahrain for the past sixty days to oversee testing and expects a recommendation for the use of the Company's products to be submitted within the next thirty days. In addition, further testing of the Company's petrochemical products is expected to commence in the countries of Oman, Kuwait, Yemen and Saudi Arabia in the next six months as a result of this Agreement.

"We expect the initial financial impact of this contract with BPT Americas to boost our sales by over 15% based on the interest level generated to date by this partnership," stated David Dugas, President of ESP Resources.  "As testing unfolds in these other countries over the next six months, the impact on our company's growth can be significant for our revenue, profits and our international presence," Dugas stated further.
