Dec 29, 2006, 00:00 ET from TexCom, Inc.

    HOUSTON, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TexCom, Inc. (OTC
 Pinksheets: TEXC) held a groundbreaking ceremony on December 21 for its
 Houston Biodiesel, LLC plant at the LBC Houston, LP terminal site in
 Seabrook, Texas.
     "This terminal is ideally suited as our initial plant location. The
 site affords us the capability to bring in our raw materials such as
 soybean and other vegetable oils by vessel, barge or rail. The plant will
 benefit from the fact the Houston Ship Channel is one of the nation's
 leading ports in terms of the volumes of agricultural commodities that it
 carries," said Lou Ross, C.E.O., of TexCom.
     The facility will store petroleum diesel and be equipped to provide
 fuel distributors with biodiesel/petroleum diesel blends such as B2, B5 and
 B20 as well as pure biodiesel. The plant is expected to be online in
 December 2007 producing 35 million gallons of B100 biodiesel annually.
 TexCom and its equity partner, US Renewables Group, previously announced
 execution of the engineering and construction contract for the Houston
 Biodiesel facility with Lurgi, Inc. of Memphis and completion of project
 financing with Stearns Bank of St. Cloud MN. Houston Biodiesel has entered
 into agreements with the Lansing Trading Group of Overland Park, MO for raw
 materials sourcing, risk management and hedging activities, as well as for
 off-take of biodiesel product.
     "Today is the result of a focused commitment that we made in 2004 to
 enter biodiesel production. Through this facility and additional expansion
 in the future, we plan to become a material factor in the domestic
 biodiesel industry. We are creating jobs, reducing our nation's dependence
 on fossil fuels, and producing a cleaner, more environmentally friendly
 fuel here. Biodiesel is recognized as a critical part of the long-term
 energy solution for America. A strong period of growth is ahead for those
 companies that have shown the foresight to enter the space and the
 capability to capitalize on the increasing demand for cleaner energy,"
 continued Ross.
