Benchmark Energy Explores Development of Coolant and Antifreeze Product Line

COLDSPRING, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2013) - Benchmark Energy Corp (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.


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."


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.


"BenchMark Energy Corporation (OTC Pink: BMRK) is the source for glycerin and related refined components, providing value through our industry knowledge." Our mission statement starts the story, but the rest is available at
