HyperSolar Extends Research Agreement with University of California, Santa Barbara as Demand for Clean Hydrogen Grows

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., June 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HyperSolar, Inc. (OTCQB:HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced it has extended its sponsored research agreement with the University of California, the first university the Company partnered with when it embarked on its quest to produce completely renewable, cost-efficient hydrogen.

The extended agreement with the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) will maintain the relationship through June 30, 2018. The agreement comes during a crucial time for the Company, as alongside the University of Iowa, UCSB is tasked with scaling HyperSolar’s renewable hydrogen production process, including the advancement of a commercial prototype using readily available amorphous silicon solar cells, as well as developing a patented nanoparticle technology that will produce economically viable “green” hydrogen.  

As HyperSolar technology continues to develop in its quest to increase efficiency while reducing cost, the market for hydrogen, especially that produced by completely renewable processes, continues its rise in demand. This demand at the consumer level is driven by the influx of fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) hitting the market from major automotive manufacturers including Toyota and Hyundai, as well as innovative startups such as Nikola Motor Co. who plans to release hydrogen-fuel cell electric semi-trucks. However, infrastructure remains an existing barrier to mass FCV adoption, which has historically struggled to meet innovation and the current growing demand. HyperSolar believes its technology represents a solution to this challenge by producing completely renewable hydrogen demand at or near the point of distribution, such as a fueling station.

“We have stressed the importance of maintaining a strong relationship with the scientific teams that have led and supported the growth of HyperSolar technology,” said Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar. “This agreement with the University of California maintains the continuity of our core scientific group, one that we anticipate leading us to eventual commercialization. Now more than ever, our focus is on demonstrating capabilities in real world environments, and reaching our potential to meet the rapidly growing market demand.” 

HyperSolar’s research is focused on developing a completely renewable, low-cost and submersible hydrogen production particle that can split water molecules using the power of the sun, emulating the core functions of photosynthesis. Each particle is a complete hydrogen generator that contains a novel high voltage solar cell bonded to chemical catalysts by a proprietary encapsulation coating. A video detailing the rise of hydrogen fuel technology as well as HyperSolar’s completely renewable process of hydrogen fuel production can be viewed by visiting here.

About HyperSolar, Inc.
HyperSolar is developing a breakthrough, low cost technology to make renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, including seawater and wastewater. Unlike hydrocarbon fuels, such as oil, coal and natural gas, where carbon dioxide and other contaminants are released into the atmosphere when used, hydrogen fuel usage produces pure water as the only byproduct. By optimizing the science of water electrolysis at the nano-level, our low cost nanoparticles mimic photosynthesis to efficiently use sunlight to separate hydrogen from water, to produce environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen. Using our low cost method to produce renewable hydrogen, we intend to enable a world of distributed hydrogen production for renewable electricity and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.  To learn more about HyperSolar, please visit our website at

STATE COLLEGE, Pa., June 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rex Energy Corporation (Nasdaq:REXX) today announced that it has placed into sales the four-well Baird pad in the Moraine East Area. The Baird wells were drilled to an average lateral length of approximately 7,140 feet and completed in an average of 39 stages and 2,727 pounds of sand. The wells produced at an average 24-hour sales rate per well, assuming full ethane recovery, of 10.1 MMcfe/d consisting of 4.4 MMcf/d of natural gas, 823 bbls/d of NGLs and 124 bbls/d of condensate.

Four-Well Baird Pad – 24 Hour Sales Rates

We are extremely pleased with the results from the Baird pad, and in particular, with the two Marcellus wells that averaged over 12.0 MMcfe/d.  In addition, the Baird 4H produced the highest condensate rates we’ve seen to date in the entire Butler Operated Area. The strong performance of the Baird wells, which are located in the northernmost part of Moraine East, demonstrates the future potential for the northern portion of the field,” said Tom Stabley, Rex Energy’s President and Chief Executive Officer. He continued, “The placement of the Baird pad into sales marks another success in the execution of our two-year plan. We remain on schedule to place the six-well Shields, four-well Mackrell and four-well Wilson pad into sales in the latter half of this year, which will be the catalyst for increased production growth in the second half of 2017.”

Encana announces agreement to sell its Piceance natural gas assets

CALGARY, Alberta, June 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Encana Corporation (Encana) (TSX:ECA) (NYSE:ECA) announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Encana Oil & Gas (USA) Inc., has reached an agreement to sell its Piceance natural gas assets, located in northwestern Colorado, to Denver-based Caerus Oil and Gas LLC (Caerus).

Total cash consideration to Encana under the transaction is $735 million. In addition, Encana will reduce its midstream commitments by approximately $430 million, on an undiscounted basis, and will market Caerus’ production related to the assets.

“This transaction advances our strategy, makes the company more efficient and delivers significant proceeds that we will use to further strengthen our balance sheet,” said Doug Suttles, Encana President & CEO. “I’d like to congratulate Caerus on acquiring a high-quality natural gas asset along with a talented team.”

Encana’s Piceance assets include approximately 550,000 net acres of leasehold and approximately 3,100 operated wells which produced an average 240 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas and 2,178 barrels per day (bbls/d) of liquids through the first quarter of 2017. Estimated year-end 2016 proved reserves were 814 billion cubic feet equivalent (Bcfe).

The sale is subject to satisfaction of normal closing conditions, regulatory approvals, closing and other adjustments and is expected to be completed during the third quarter with an effective date of January 1, 2017.

BMO Capital Markets served as Encana’s financial advisor for the transaction.

Encana Corporation
Encana is a leading North American energy producer that is focused on developing its strong portfolio of resource plays, held directly and indirectly through its subsidiaries, producing natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs). By partnering with employees, community organizations and other businesses, Encana contributes to the strength and sustainability of the communities where it operates. Encana common shares trade on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges under the symbol ECA.

ADVISORY REGARDING OIL AND GAS INFORMATION – Reserves are the estimated remaining quantities of oil and natural gas and related substances anticipated to be recoverable from known accumulations, from a given date forward, based on: analysis of drilling, geological, geophysical and engineering data, the use of established technology, and specified economic conditions, which are generally accepted as being reasonable. Proved reserves are those reserves which can be estimated with a high degree of certainty to be recoverable. It is likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the estimated proved reserves.

The conversion of barrels of oil to natural gas equivalent is on the basis of one barrel to six thousand cubic feet, which is based on a generic energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent economic value equivalency at the wellhead. Readers are cautioned that such term may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.

ADVISORY REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS – This news release contains certain forward-looking statements or information (collectively, “FLS”) within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. FLS include: expected consideration to Encana, the use of proceeds therefrom, the anticipated reduction to midstream commitments, the expectation that the closing conditions and regulatory approvals will be satisfied and the timing of closing thereof; Encana’s marketing of production; anticipated benefits from the transaction; and estimated reserves.

Readers are cautioned against unduly relying on FLS which, by their nature, involve numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties that may cause such statements not to occur, or results to differ materially from those expressed or implied. These assumptions include: enforceability of the sale agreement; the ability to satisfy closing conditions and regulatory approvals, successful closing of, and the value of post-closing and other adjustments associated with the sale of the assets; assumptions contained in Encana’s corporate guidance and in the news release; data contained in key modeling statistics; effectiveness of Encana’s drive to productivity and efficiencies; the expectation that counterparties will fulfill their obligations under the gathering, midstream and marketing agreements; and expectations and projections made in light of, and generally consistent with, Encana’s historical experience and its perception of historical trends, including with respect to the pace of technological development, the benefits achieved and general industry expectations.

Risks and uncertainties that may affect these business outcomes include: risks inherent to closing the transaction including whether it will close on a timely basis or at all; adjustments that may reduce the expected proceeds and value to Encana; issues or disputes with third parties and the inability to dispose of assets or interests in certain arrangements; commodity price volatility; counterparty and credit risk; risks inherent in Encana’s corporate guidance; failure to achieve anticipated results from cost and efficiency initiatives; risks inherent in marketing operations; risks associated with existing and potential future lawsuits and regulatory actions made against Encana; imprecision of reserves estimates; and other risks and uncertainties impacting Encana’s business, as described in its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and as described from time to time in Encana’s other periodic filings as filed on SEDAR and EDGAR.

Although Encana believes the expectations represented by such FLS are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. Readers are cautioned that the assumptions, risks and uncertainties referenced above are not exhaustive. FLS are made as of the date of this news release and, except as required by law, Encana undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any FLS. The FLS contained in this news release are expressly qualified by these cautionary statements.

Mantra Venture Group CEO Delivers an Open Letter to Shareholders

LONGWOOD, Fla., June 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mantra Venture Group, Ltd, (OTC:MVTG) (the “Company”), has appointed Roger Ponder as its new CEO and the following is his update to the Company’s shareholders:

“Dear Shareholders and Investors:

I wanted to take this time to formally introduce myself as the new CEO of Mantra Venture Group, and provide our shareholders an update on the company, its changes, vision, strategy and exciting future that we believe will create greater shareholder value over the long term.   Larry Kristof, the Company’s former CEO, will remain with the Company as the President of the Mantra Energy Alternatives subsidiary to continue the development work to commercialize alternative energy technologies.

The Company recently announced its intention to change its name from “Mantra Venture Group to “Spectrum Global Solutions, Inc.”  The name change reflects the acquisition of AW Solutions, Inc. and the significant expansion in services and solutions now able to be offered by the Company. 

AW Solutions (AW) is a leading provider of telecommunications engineering and infrastructure services across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam and Caribbean. AW specializes in a vast array of comprehensive turnkey solutions to wireless and wireline communication carries, utilities and energy sector companies, aggregator management companies, enterprise/venue clients, original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s) and project management offices (PMO’s). The combination of Mantra Energy with AW provides our customers with a broad range of additional professional engineering and infrastructure solutions.  AW Solutions brings to the Company strong operations, a track record of excellence in execution and a Fortune 500 client base producing over $10 Million in annual revenue. We expect to see solid revenue growth from AW’s management team, national and international footprint, and breadth of comprehensive services.

The acquisition of AW Solutions enables this Company to take advantage of exciting new technology in the IT and telecom space and support for the deployment of Mantra Energy’s technology.

In the telecom industry, there is the pending deployment of enhanced mobile and fixed solutions which includes: IOT deployment, 5G technology deployment; FirstNet national public safety system for first responders; and the development of disruptive technology with software defined networks (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV).   There is a current need to deploy, expand and enhance the telecom and data networks as well as augment infrastructure and enterprise facilities to support this new technology and bandwidth demands of the market.

AW Solutions is developing its own proprietary technology. As a product and solution, AW has added Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAV’s) structural mapping and inspection services to its portfolio of comprehensive services. Through the development of proprietary technology, currently being patented, coupled with the use of the UAV fleet and other methods we are able to, with unparalleled precision, conduct structurally mapping, measurement, analysis and video capture of structures and associated technologies such as antenna mounts, telecom equipment, etc. Traditionally, to perform these services, it required structural climbing crews to physically ascend and measure the structural members. Now, we are able to perform our engineering solutions without the need for structural or tower climbing and thereby increase safety and increase productivity.  This new proprietary technology has many other industry applications to include: telecommunications; utilities; government; energy; military; and transportation just to name a few and may provide a potential revenue stream in the future from licensing fees.

Mantra Energy Alternatives, spearheaded by Larry Kristof, continues to focus on developing and commercializing two electrochemical technologies designed to make reduction of greenhouse gas emissions profitable, ERC (Electro-Reduction of Carbon Dioxide) and MRFC (Mixed-Reactant Fuel Cell). The merger of AW into Mantra should not be a signal that we are giving up any existing energy technology assets. To the contrary, the merger enables Larry Kristof to focus on the development of these energy assets without additional capital constraints of a public company operation.  AW can support that commercialization with their internal engineering and construction capabilities.  

We will attempt to capitalize on these transformative changes in technology with strong operational execution, a focus on driving profitability through comprehensive service offerings and organic and acquisitive growth strategies.  We will execute on a strategy to build, innovate, buy, partner, and seamlessly integrate.  We will be acquisitive to increase our services, footprint and customer base in all our service offerings.

Our commitment is to develop sustained revenues and earnings.  At the core of all our decisions is how can we increase shareholder value over the near and long-term. Whether we are a business buyer or a seller, the bottom line is the creation of real shareholder value.  My goal is to grow this Company significantly over the next twelve months and seek up listing to a national exchange.  We appreciate the support of our shareholder base and look forward to finishing 2017 with exciting results.

Termination of Operating Agreement

CALGARY, Alberta, June 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Marksmen Energy Inc. (TSX:MAH) (OTCQB:MKSEF) (“Marksmen” or the “Company”) and its wholly owned subsidiary Marksmen Energy USA, Inc. announces that its operating agreement with Houghton Investments LLC (“Houghton”) is terminated. The operating agreement defined the relationship of both parties in an Area of Mutual Interest (“AMI”) in Pickaway County, Ohio.

The operating agreement between Marksmen Energy USA, Inc. and Houghton Investments LLC lapsed due to a failure to agree on the drilling of an additional well in a specified time frame.  Although the agreement has been successful for both parties, each company is currently re-evaluating individual interests outside the AMI.  Rather than renegotiating new terms and amending the operating agreement both parties agree that it is now an appropriate time to pursue other interests.

Houghton transferred operatorship to Marksmen Energy, USA Inc. of the producing wells and water injection well/facility in January of 2017.  Marksmen will continue to operate the wells. 

The lapsing of the agreement does not prevent Marksmen and Houghton from entering into new operating agreements on other wells outside the AMI.  Houghton and Marksmen remain business partners on all earned wells and lands.

Marksmen has other joint venture opportunities in Ohio and is currently evaluating additional drilling, land acquisition and 3D seismic opportunities in Ohio.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this news release.
