EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 23, 2013) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.

Bri-Chem Corp. ("Bri-Chem" or "Company") (TSX:BRY), a leading North American wholesale distributor and manufacturer of oil and gas drilling fluids and steel pipe is pleased to announce that it has further expanded its footprint in the USA wholesale drilling fluids market by adding its fifteenth new strategically located storage area for distribution of drilling fluid products and stimulation additives to the USA oil and gas industry. The new location is situated in Huntsville, Texas and is located in the yard of Bri-Chem's transportation partner who will handle delivery of the drilling fluid products to locations in the greater area. The drilling activity that Bri-Chem is targeting to service is the liquids rich formation of the tight Woodbine sands in the East Texas extension of the Eagleford shale play.
