Carbon Sciences Appoints James E. Leahy GTL Project Advisor 
Industry Veteran to Assist the Company With Planning and Developing
Its First Plant for Transforming Natural Gas Into Liquid
Transportation Fuels 
SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/10/13 --  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 James E. Leahy has
joined the company as GTL Project Advisor. Mr. Leahy will assist the
company with planning and developing its first gas-to-liquids (GTL)
Mr. Leahy has extensive experience in process development, project
management, and process plant technical support in the petrochemical
and synthetic fuels industries. He received his Bachelor of Science
in Chemical Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology in 1969
and Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from University of
Houston in 1973. Mr. Leahy joined Shell Chemical Company in 1969 as a
process engineer. From 1974 to 1975 he worked as a process engineer
for M.W. Kellogg Company. Mr. Leahy joined ARCO Chemical Company and
served as Chief Process Engineer from 1976 to 1989, Engineering &
Construction Manager from 1990 to 1997 and Project Manager from 1997
to 1999. From 2000 to 2007, he was Director, Special Projects at
Syntroleum Corporation where he developed gas-to-liquids and
coal-to-liquids processes. From 2008 to 2011, Mr. Leahy was
Engineering Manager for Australian American Energy Company and
managed various coal-to-liquids studies and projects. He is the
holder of six patents in the field of synfuels. 
Bill Beifuss, the company's CEO, commented, "We are very fortunate to
have Mr. Leahy leading our GTL plant development effort. His in-depth
knowledge of synfuels, chemical engineering and years of hands-on
experience in the petrochemical industry makes him an ideal choice to
help us launch our first GTL plant." 
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
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 2,000 barrel per day range can be built to monetize small to
medium size fields, which account for nearly 40% of gas fields in the
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. We are also developing a proprietary technology to
enable a second-generation GTL solution that will produce even
cleaner gasoline by using captured CO2 or low value, high CO2 content
natural gas as part of the process. Our technology can also be used
to transform natural gas into other valuable, large volume products,
such as hydrogen, methanol, ammonia, solvents and plastics. To learn
