TexCom Inc. to Construct Biodiesel Plant in Oklahoma, Receives $6 Million Project Finance Equity Commitment

    HOUSTON, June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TexCom, Inc. (OTC Pink
 Sheets: TEXC) today announced that it has received a $6 million project
 finance equity commitment to expand its Biodiesel operations into the state
 of Oklahoma. A group led by former University of Oklahoma and Dallas
 Cowboys Coach Barry Switzer has committed $6 million as the equity
 component for a Biodiesel plant to be constructed for purposes of serving
 the diesel fuel needs for the State of Oklahoma.
     As part of the agreement, Barry Switzer will be retained by TexCom as a
 consultant and advisor.
     Switzer stated, "Over the past few months, we have spent a lot of time
 with TexCom management and have introduced them to various state executives
 and legislators in Oklahoma. We feel that bringing TexCom to Oklahoma will
 provide jobs, a growing market for our agricultural products, and help to
 reduce our dependence on foreign oil. TexCom's management team is one of
 the few in the nation that brings practical permitting and large-scale
 plant construction and operations management to the Biodiesel industry.
 We've spent several months getting to this point and intend to be in
 construction by mid November."
     Lou Ross, President of TexCom, Inc. stated, "The management team has
 been in discussions with the Governor and Mr. Switzer since early this
 year. This equity commitment and the responsiveness of Coach Switzer and
 the state officials were critical in our decision-making. This
 administration has proven itself a great advocate for expansion of clean
 fuels and business. Expanding into Oklahoma is another significant step for
 TexCom in extending our Biodiesel operations footprint." As previously
 announced, TexCom 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.
     Since joining TexCom as President in December 2003, Dr. Ross has been
 the guiding force in TexCom's entry into the Biodiesel arena. He has been
 selected to present at the 2nd Annual Platts Biodiesel Investor Conference
 in Houston, Texas on Thursday, June 29th at 10:45 CDT. The Platts Biodiesel
 Conference is the premier forum for the investors to evaluate opportunity
 and advancement of Biodiesel as an alternative renewable fuel.

     About Biodiesel
     Biodiesel is the name of a clean burning alternative fuel, produced
 from domestic, renewable resources. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but it

 blend. It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little
 or no 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
 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and meets clean diesel standards
 established by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Neat (100
 percent) Biodiesel has been designated as an alternative fuel by the
 Department of Energy (DOE) and the US Department of Transportation (DOT).
