Trend Technology and Americas Energy Company Sell Production of First Oil Well

KNOXVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - October 29, 2009) - Trend Technology Corporation (OTCBB: TRET) and Americas Energy Company (AECo) announced today that AEC has sold the initial production from its first oil well. AECo is in the process of being acquired by TRET. The well is located in Cumberland County, Kentucky on AECo's 1,700+ acre lease. After a detailed evaluation the well was placed on a timed pumping program to extend the production life of the well and is currently producing 15-20 barrels per day.

"The sale of the production from our first oil well to Somerset Energy Refining in Somerset, Kentucky has set the stage for our oil division. We have entrusted the development of that division to Mr. Jimmy A. Dunn Jr., as our Vice President of Oil and Gas," said Chris Headrick, President and Co-CEO of Americas Energy Company. Mr. Headrick added, "Based on the success of the first well, Mr. Dunn and AECo have established an aggressive development plan to initiate production on our oil and natural gas leases. We plan to rapidly exploit our development rights to the 1,700+ acres surrounding this well, and develop as many as 95 additional oil wells over the next 24 to 36 months."
