Benchmark Energy Explores Development of Coolant and Antifreeze Product Line

Coldspring, Texas (November 21, 2013) – BenchMark Energy Corporation (OTC Pink:BMRK) an International supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes, announced plans to develop its own coolant/antifreeze product line in the US.

Benchmark Energy is a leading provider of Glycerin, which is used in many commercial processes, such as in production of cosmetics and soaps, animal feed, and in anti-freeze products. Retained as a by-product from biodiesel production, the Company maintains a strong distribution relationship with end-use production companies who require Glycerin in the manufacturing process.

For the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company projects shipping 1.6M pounds of Glycerin to its manufacturing partners in the US, and North America.

ANTIFREEZE PRODUCT LINE

In order to leverage its access to the raw Glycerin market, and its growing distribution network, the Company is exploring the development of its own line of coolant and antifreeze products for sale in the US, and North America. The product line will likely include all three types of antifreeze products- conventional, organic acid technology (OAT) and hybrid organic acid technology (HOAT) – although there could be other products considered as well.
Mark Bateman, Chairman and CEO of BenchMark Energy commented, “Benchmark Energy is pleased to announce the development of its own line of coolant and anti-freeze products to potentially expand our revenue growth within the company. Although in the initial stages, we feel our ability to leverage our every growing access to Glycerin, and distribution contacts across the US, we could provide Benchmark the ability to grow the company internally through the launch of its own consumer brand line, while increasing value for our shareholders.”

SHARE STRUCTURE

As of Nov. 18, 2013, the Company had approximately 23.5 million common shares issued and outstanding, with a public float of around 1.1 million shares.

About BenchMark Energy Corporation

BenchMark Energy Corporation is a leading provider of a Green Renewable Energy Source, glycerin. Pure glycerin, a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid is an organic bio-degradable compound widely used in the energy, pharmaceutical, and personal care product industries. Glycerin, a result of trans-esterification of biodiesel, accounts for nine percent (9%) of the unrefined biodiesel produced. The rise in biodiesel production as a renewable fuel over the recent years sources an abundance of off-grade glycerin. This grade of glycerin, also referred to as crude glycerin, is approximately 60% to 80% pure. Biodiesel produced glycerin is called crude glycerin or industrial grade glycerin, containing water, methanol, fatty acids, biodiesel and other trace chemicals, including matter organic non-glycerol (MONG). This grade of glycerin has numerous applications in the coal, marine, mining, oil & gas, and other energy sub-sectors.

Additional glycerin applications include the food and beverage industry where it serves as a humectant, solvent, and sweetener. Glycerin is also used as a filler in commercially prepared low-fat foods and as a thickening agent. In the medical and pharmaceutical sector, glycerin is widely used as a means to provide smoothness, providing lubrication and as a humectant. It used in toothpaste, cough syrup, elixirs, expectorants, mouthwash, soap, and numerous other personal products.

While the demand for glycerin has remained stable, the demand for refined glycerin, technical grade and higher, has risen. BenchMark Energy Corporation has focused its attention on distribution and refinement of glycerin in the renewable fuel and energy sectors.
