BenchMark Energy Streamlines Shipping, Saves Cost Utilizing Schneider’s New Bulk Intermodal Service

Coldspring, Texas (April 29, 2014) – BenchMark Energy Corp. (OTC Pink:BMRK), a refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes, is pleased to have been one of the first to utilize Schneider’s new Bulk Intermodal service into Mexico.

BenchMark has been pursuing a reliable, more cost-effective means of transporting product over long distances that would also insure a timely delivery schedule. Although intermodal service has delivered door-to-door transportation at lower costs for decades, it has been almost exclusively in the dry van segment. In 2012, Schneider launched intermodal service for the liquid bulk segment. Today, Schneider’s Bulk Intermodal offering provides ‘truck-like’ service throughout its North American network.

Mark Bateman, CEO of BenchMark stated, “Recently, BenchMark and Schneider completed their first Intermodal shipment to Mexico. Not only was there a cost savings on the transportation, but by eliminating any transload and streamlining the border crossing process, we were able to move the shipment in days instead of weeks. The combination of trucking and rail service has proved to be a very effective solution for our transportation needs.”

BenchMark Energy Corp. believes that the addition of Schneider’s transportation and logistics expertise will significantly decrease costs, reduce delivery times, and ultimately help BenchMark move their raw and finished products more effectively.

BenchMark Energy Announces New Product Availability

Coldspring, Texas (March 17, 2014) – BenchMark Energy Corp. (OTC Pink:BMRK), a refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes,  announced it will include propylene glycol in its available product line.
Propylene Glycol

Propylene Glycol is used as a chemical feedstock for the production of unsaturated polyester resins as well as to produce polyurethanes. It is considered to be safe for use in and around food by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is used as a humectant, a solvent and preservative in food and for tobacco products (it is also a major ingredient in electronic cigarettes, along with glycerin).

Propylene Glycol is used as a solvent in many pharmaceuticals such as diazepam and lorazepam. Propylene Glycol is able to lower the freezing point of water and so in addition to being a main component in BenchMark’s Timberline antifreeze, it is also used in applications related to de-icing, as an oil dispersant and is present in the vapor used in vaporizers.

Mark Bateman, the CEO of BenchMark Energy Corp. commented, “The Company is very excited to be able to add Propylene Glycol to the growing list of our available products.  We believe that Propylene Glycol is an important building block in numerous applications and will be in high demand here in the United States as well as internationally.”

SHARE STRUCTURE

As of March 01, 2014, the Company had approximately 23.5 million common shares issued and outstanding, with a public float of around 1.1 million shares.

BenchMark Energy Corp. intends to not just bring the company current under OTC Markets standards, but intends to file an S-1 registration statement for approval in the first quarter of 2014 in hope of becoming a fully reporting entity with the SEC under the Securities Act of 1934.

The Company has retained legal counsel, and is in the process of retaining an independent auditor in order to begin the process of conducting fully audited financials on the company and its current operations. The Company’s intention is to file an S-1 statement with the SEC to become listed on the OTCQB exchange in 2014.

Any approval to uplist to OTCQB is subject to completion of audits, and final approval by such regulatory agencies, such as FINRA and SEC. Therefore, investors are advised to rely on our financial information filed with OTC Markets until any such approval of filings with said regulatory agencies.

Without a doubt, becoming a fully reporting entity under SEC standards requires a rigorous review process and increase in internal financial controls, but as we embark on the launch of our antifreeze product in the start of 2014, the process of filing an S-1 registration is part of our main goal in growing Benchmark Energy, and its standing within the markets. Any action to upgrade BenchMark trading standards is subject to final approval from regulatory agencies.”
