Modern Energy Corp. Begins Trading on Frankfurt Exchange Under Symbol "ME2"

Natural Gas Producer to Ramp Up Business Development

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - July 19, 2007) - Modern Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: MODR), announced that the company's stock is now trading on the third tier of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange as "ME2" and "ME2.F."

James Stewart, CEO of Modern Energy Corp., said, "The listing of MODR on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange assists European investors with an interest in natural resources on the company's progress and increases the Company's visibility throughout the European Union. We believe that the Frankfurt Stock Exchange listing will assure our investment story to reach a much larger European investor audience as we ramp up our corporate development profile."

Modern Energy is a development stage investment company with three areas of interests:

-- Oil and Natural Gas development and production. The company is currently producing a modest amount of natural gas from one natural gas well. Recent geologic and engineering studies indicate a potential 2.8 billion cubic feet of natural gas reserves in the area under the company's property in Oklahoma. The company believes that at least six other productive wells could be drilled on the property.

-- Biofuel feedstock cultivation potential on company land holdings totaling over 250,000 hectares (600,000 acres) in the Philippines. The company is negotiating with potential investors/partners that may invest in this potentially highly profitable and environmentally sound palm and jatropha oils business.

-- Mineral mining potential on company land holdings in the Philippines. The company's Mindanao land also has mineral rights where potentially valuable quantities of copper, gold, silver and other minerals are likely to be present. The company will further assess the property and determine which minerals are commercially viable as a prelude to obtaining a corporate partner for mining development.
