May 05, 2006, 01:00 ET from TexCom, Inc.

    HOUSTON, May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TexCom, Inc. (OTC Pink Sheets:  
 TEXC) announced today that it has executed a Preliminary Engineering
 Agreement with Lurgi PSI, based in Memphis, Tennessee, to build a 35
 Million gallon per year Biodiesel Plant at the LBC bulk liquids terminal in
 Seabrook, Texas.
     This facility is the first of several Biodiesel production sites that
 TexCom currently plans to build and operate in the south central United
     TexCom had previously announced the signing of a Letter of Intent with
 LBC to locate the 35 million gallon per year biodiesel plant at LBC
 Houston's Seabrook site. LBC, based in Paris, France, is one of the largest
 owner/operators of bulk chemical terminal operations in the world. The
 TexCom plant will utilize existing and newly added on-site storage capacity
 and other terminal facilities owned and operated by LBC under a fifteen
 year lease agreement. The facility will allow transportation of raw
 materials and product via barge, rail and truck.
     The Engineering Agreement precedes the execution of a definitive
 Engineering, Procurement & Construction Contract ("EPC"). TexCom will
 execute the EPC when the project financing has been completed. Lurgi will
 provide the process technology, design and plant construction, utilizing
 its continuous process for converting soybean oil into fuel grade
 Biodiesel. Lurgi is recognized as a worldwide leader in the design and
 construction of Biodiesel facilities, having completed numerous facilities
 in Europe and currently building a plant in Iowa.
     The TexCom project design includes the capability to store conventional
 petroleum diesel, allowing TexCom to blend and market B20 and other
 biodiesel blends as well as B100 on site. Feedstock will be brought in via
 barge or rail to the site, located near the Houston Ship Channel, to
 produce the renewable fuel.
     Definitive feedstock and off-take agreements are currently being
 negotiated to ensure that at completion, the plant can move quickly to
     Lou Ross, President of TexCom Resources stated, "We have been working
 diligently for the past two years to put ourselves in position to enter the
 Biodiesel business. This facility will make a strong statement concerning
 our commitment and capability to execute our Biodiesel business plan. We
 chose to build at the LBC terminal in Seabrook, Texas because of its ideal
 location adjacent to the Houston Ship Channel."
     About Bio-Diesel
     Biodiesel is a clean burning alternative fuel, produced from domestic,
 renewable resources. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but it can be blended

 modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and
 essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.
     Biodiesel is registered as a fuel and fuel additive with the
