West Texas Gas to Supply Carbon Sciences' First Gas-to-Liquids (GTL) Plant

Company Signs Letter of Intent With Major Distributor to Provide up to 30,000 Mcf per Day of Natural Gas

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- Carbon Sciences Inc. (OTCBB: CABN), provider of a complete solution for transforming abundant and affordable natural gas into clean burning gasoline and other transportation fuels, today announced that it has signed a letter of intent with West Texas Gas to supply up to 30,000 Mcf per day of natural gas for the company's planned gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant.

"We have decided to build our first GTL plant in Texas and West Texas Gas has agreed to supply all the natural gas required to feed this new plant," said Trey Smith, the company's Executive Vice President. "We are very fortunate to have a major distributor step forward and be willing to commit resources at this time. This will allow us to immediately proceed with our project."

West Texas Gas (WTG), headquartered in Midland, Texas, has core businesses in natural gas distribution operations, natural gas transmission services, gas gathering/processing, and natural gas liquids transmission services. WTG owns and operates approximately 5,192 miles of Natural Gas Distribution mainlines and serves 28,108 customers within the states of Oklahoma and Texas.

WTG is a local distribution gas company in twenty-nine (29) incorporated Texas cities and twelve (12) incorporated Oklahoma cities. WTG owns and operates approximately 1,680 miles (non-contiguous) of Natural Gas Transmission pipelines within the states of Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. WTG owns and operates 528 miles of gathering pipelines within the states of Kansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. WTG owns and operates approximately 67.4 miles (non-contiguous) of Hazardous Liquids (NGL) Transmission pipelines within the state of Texas.

According to Kendall Carew, the company's Vice President of Business Development, "With West Texas Gas serving as our supplier of natural gas, we can now finalize arrangements to acquire a plant site. We have identified a number of attractive possibilities and expect to make a final decision within the next 60 days."

Carbon Sciences previously announced its plan to build a miniGTL plant, designed in a modular nature, which will allow the matching of the equipment to the quantity of natural gas, as well as allow for portability if gas flow declines over time. The company estimates that a miniGTL plant producing approximately 1,000 barrels per day of transportation fuel can be contained in as few as 60 modules. A modular design enables rail car or truck transportation and installation to remote sites with limited infrastructure. Modular construction additionally will allow the company to manufacture in low cost production centers and then transport the modules to the gas field, resulting in a substantial cost savings over on-site construction.

Unlike large scale GTL plants, such as those developed by Royal Dutch Shell and Sasol that require large gas fields, a miniGTL plant in the 1,000 to 3,000 barrel per day range can be built to monetize small to medium size fields, which account for nearly 40% of gas fields in the world.

About Carbon Sciences Inc.

Carbon Sciences offers a complete solution for transforming an abundant and affordable supply of natural gas into clean burning gasoline and other transportation fuels. While large producers, such as Shell and Sasol, have built and operate world scale gas-to-liquids (GTL) plants for large natural gas fields, our solution is engineered to cost effectively produce transportation fuels from the thousands of available small and medium size natural gas fields. Our first generation miniGTL solution integrates best of breed and proven technologies. Related technology solutions can also transform natural gas into other valuable, large volume products, such as hydrogen, methanol, ammonia, solvents and plastics.
