IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- Universal Bioenergy Inc. (OTCQB: UBRG), a publicly traded independent diversified energy company that markets and distributes natural gas, propane, petroleum and coal, announced that its subsidiary NDR Energy Group, has established a new division to expand into the sales of natural gas sales in the spot market and daily and weekly gas sales. This expansion into the spot market and daily sales of natural gas is projected to have a major impact on the gross margins and earnings of the Company as it moves forward in its drive towards profitability.
For many years, NDR Energy has sold base load or term gas transactions of one to six months contracts, to some of the largest utilities and end users in the United States. The daily spot market for the sales of natural gas is very active, and trading can occur 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which could generate significant earnings for the Company. The gross margins in the spot market can be in the range of $0.05 to $0.25 or more, and sometimes as large as $3.00 to $8.00 or more per mcf for gas, based on the seasonality of the gas sales.
NDR Energy Group is projected to generate an estimated $12.13 million in gross revenues for March. The estimated sales of $12.13 million, exceeds the combined gross revenues for the past four March sales periods at NDR Energy. The $12.13 million in estimated sales for March 2014 equals 318% of the $3,809,176 in gross sales that NDR Energy posted in March of 2013.
NDR Energy Group's President and CEO, Ken Harris, stated, "For many months, many of our utility customers across the country have requested that we initiate daily gas sales to supplement our base load relationships. Newer potential customers would like to emphasize purchasing daily gas from NDR. Our Vice President of Business Development, Rickey Hart has marshalled and cultivated these growing requests. Although implementing a daily gas division will increase the complexity of our operations, selling daily gas will, likely, substantially increase our volumes and greatly enhance our margins."
NDR Energy Group, a subsidiary of Universal Bioenergy, sells natural gas to many of the largest public utilities, electric power producers and local gas distribution companies that serve millions of commercial, industrial and residential customer in the United States.
