Great East Energy Names International Energy Executive Herve Collet as Chief Operating Officer

40-Year Oil and Gas Drilling Engineer to Lead Field Operations for GASE's Current 160 Square Miles of Middle European Clean Energy Assets

NEW YORK, NY and KIEV, UKRAINE -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Great East Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: GASE) (the "Company") which controls over 160 square miles of producing clean energy holdings through two local operating companies, has named veteran energy executive Herve Collet as its Chief Operating Officer. "Herve brings over 40 years of experience in building drilling operations," said GASE CEO Timur Khromaev. "He has managed drilling operations from Canada to Costa Rica, from Mexico to Morocco, and importantly for GASE, in Middle Europe as well," Khromaev concluded. Mr. Collet brings specialized drilling experience in conventional and nonconventional production, including coal-bed methane.

Great East Energy is currently working to further develop its estimated gross total reserves of 47 billion cubic feet (BCF) of natural gas in the GASE license area. GASE is publically traded in the U.S. and is a fully-reporting company with the SEC whose wholly-owned subsidiary controls two companies which have been producing gas since 2003, own two gas processing facilities, and over eight miles of gas pipelines to their customers.

GASE owns operating and distributing unconventional gas companies in the Dnieper-Donets Basin of Ukraine in Middle Europe, with current production and infrastructure already in place. GASE's 162-square mile property has seven major dome structures, and according to its prior owners, has already produced nearly one billion cubic feet of gas. Twelve core wells and five vent-wells have been drilled on the producing domes to confirm the presence and production of gas.

GASE's assets are surrounded by Royal Dutch Shell's Yuzivske gas field comprising nearly 8,000 square kilometers, which was the featured asset in a USD$10 billion contract signed by Ukraine at Davos, Switzerland in 2013. The preliminary resources estimate of the Yuzivske gas field is up to 300 trillion cubic feet. The GASE Block reserves were evaluated by Marathon Oil in 2007 and through an independent NI 51-101 report.

ABOUT GASE:
Great East Energy is a producing, development stage company targeting the growing independent natural gas production industry of Ukraine, as Europe's second-largest country by land mass makes energy self-sufficiency from Russia a priority. With Ukraine natural gas priced over three times U.S. levels, the energy industry holds compelling economics as well. Through its local operating subsidiaries NPK-KONTAKT and LISPROMGAZ, the completion of GASE's well development activities are planned to result in a multi-million dollar inward investment into Ukraine.
