Modern Energy Corp. Launches Corporate Website on Updated Business Plan

Energy Initiatives Focus on Biofuel Feedstock and Oil and Gas Production

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - Modern Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: MODR) announced the launching of the company's new updated corporate website at, which outlines the company's business plan to develop its oil and natural gas properties in Oklahoma. The website also expands upon the company's initiatives for biofuel feedstock overseas. In addition, the company's Mindanao properties provide mineral rights, including potentially valuable quantities of copper, gold, silver and other minerals.

Modern Energy Corp has a majority interest in the oil and gas production from 640 acres of a productive area in Woodward County, Oklahoma, near the Texas border. The property includes the Chester Zone, which is well known in that region for its substantial gas reserves. Two natural gas wells about 10 miles away from the Modern Energy property are each producing 42 million cubic feet per day and 500 barrels of oil per day. An oil well only 15 miles away is yielding 1,000 barrels/day.

Modern Energy's wholly owned subsidiaries control over 600,000 acres of agricultural land on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, much of which is suitable for growing palm oil, the most productive oil seed in the world. A single hectare (2.47 acres) of oil palm may yield over 4 metric tons of crude oil, or nearly 5,000 liters (1200 gallons) of crude oil per hectare. For comparison, soybeans and corn -- crops often heralded as top biofuel sources -- generate only 118 and 45 gallons per hectare, respectively.
