Jul 14, 2004, 01:00 ET from X-Change Corporation

    DALLAS, July 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The X-Change Corporation's
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   XCHC) OIL ID Systems, Inc., subsidiary has acquired a
 producing oil lease in East Texas.
     The Bolton lease, located in Gregg County, Texas, near Longview, currently
 produces 10 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) but had been neglected by the
 previous operator and is being worked over to increase production to its
 former steady levels of 40 BOPD.  OIL ID Systems, Inc. has an option to
 purchase an additional 125 BOPD from PRL Oil Company, Inc., whose principals
 are partners with OIL ID Systems.
     "We are very happy with the synergies coming to us through our involvement
 with RFID initiatives in the oil and gas industry," said Michael Sheriff, CEO
 of the X-Change Corporation.  "While our focus is on developing RFID
 technology, products, and applications, we are pleased that this attractive
 opportunity to generate immediate revenues and cash flow was made available to
     Demand for radio frequency identification solutions by energy producers
 and oil field service companies led X-Change to create Oil ID Systems as a
 compliment to its wholly owned subsidiary, AirGATE Technologies, Inc.
     Radio Frequency Identification is a technology that employs miniature
 radio transmitters in conjunction with microprocessors that can be utilized to
 track oil movement and migration and will be a valuable tool in assessing and
 identifying producing oil & gas formations prior to fracturing.  RFID
 technologies can also be employed to keep track of movement and utilization of
 expensive oil field equipment.  The level of demand for RFID systems in
 producing oil fields around the world is on the rise, and OIL ID Systems will
 assist AirGATE Technologies in developing applications and aggressively
 capturing market share within this growing RFID market niche.
