ENGlobal Announces First Universal Master Control Station(TM) Installation

Patent-Pending, Vendor-Independent Subsea Control System

HOUSTON, Oct. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ENGlobal Corporation (Nasdaq:ENG),
a leading provider of energy-related engineering and automation services,
announced today that its first patent‑pending Universal Master Control
Station™ (UMCS™) has been successfully installed on an offshore platform in
the Gulf of Mexico for a major international oil and gas company. The UMCS™
provides a standardized interface between industry available subsea production
systems and topsides production facilities.

"We are pleased to reach this significant milestone and look forward to
pending deployments of the UMCS™ technology," said William A. Coskey, P.E.,
ENGlobal's Chief Executive Officer. "ENGlobal intends to utilize the UMCS™
platform as the basis for further subsea controls integration projects,
including hydraulic power and electrical systems. As a Subsea Controls
Integrator (SCI), we offer added value to our customers by utilizing our
execution skills to manage technically complex subsea projects."

The UMCS™ is a control station used primarily to monitor and control subsea
production equipment, with features including:

  *Integration of multiple subsea equipment vendors within a single master
    control station;
  *Operable in new or existing subsea production/injection areas;
  *Scalable object-based programming software utilizing off-the-shelf
    commercial hardware;
  *Standardized interface to subsea communication units, distributed control
    systems, electrical power units, and hydraulic power units; and
  *Easily configurable operational graphics, security protection, interlocks,
    and shutdown sequences tailored via the UMCS Client Configuration Tool™.

As previously reported, the UMCS™ has been in development since 2006, with
coordination between ENGlobal, its client and leading providers of subsea
equipment and services. The Company acquired the subsea control system
technology – and initiated its U.S. patent process – in 2010 in order to
expand into the active offshore upstream market.
