Independence Energy Corp. Receives Confirmation of Rig Booking for Taylor-MEI #113 Well in Coleman County, Texas

SEAL BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 13, 2012) - Independence Energy Corp. (OTCBB: IDNG) (the "Company" or "Independence Energy") is pleased to announce that the Company has received confirmation that the contracted completion rig for the Taylor-MEI #113 well has been booked for delivery to the proposed well site in Coleman County, Texas. The project operator has also reported that they currently anticipate the arrival of the rig on Friday, June 15, 2012, weather permitting. The Company expects that completion work will begin immediately following rig setup and testing.

The Taylor-MEI #113 is part of a two well re-completion program targeting potential oil bearing formations shown to be productive in the area. The two wells, the Taylor-MEI #113 and the Taylor-MEI #115, were originally drilled to, and completed in, the Ellenburger formation (4,400 feet) and are currently in the re-completion stage to the Gardner Sandstone formation (3,700 feet). The Taylor-MEI #113 is projected to take approximately 10 days to complete.

The Taylor Lease property historically produced oil from four wells originally drilled during the 1950's, but until it was acquired by the current operator, the property did not have any further development work conducted on it. All four of the above mentioned historic wells were drilled to, and found productive out of, the Gardner Sandstone formation. Historic production data shows that each of these historic wells produced in excess of 20,000 barrels of oil from the Gardner Sandstone using the drilling and completion techniques of the time. The historic wells were also capable of producing a significant, but unaccounted for, amount of natural gas.

The Company's participation in the Taylor-MEI #113 and the Taylor-MEI #115 wells are structured as a 2.5% working interest. All costs to test, complete, and equip the wells through initial completion are included under the original participation agreement.

Further updates regarding the Taylor-MEI #113 well and other Independence Energy business will be made as additional information becomes available.
