EarthSearch Announces Oil Pipeline Monitoring System

February 24, 2011

Based on the company's integrated GPS/RFID technology, the system will aid companies and nations to protect their oil distribution lines.

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire ) -- East Coast Diversified Corp. (OTCBB: ECDC), through its subsidiary EarthSearch Communications, Inc., announces the development of oil pipeline monitoring system based on its proprietary integrated GPS/RFID technology. The system will allow nations and oil companies to monitors tens of thousands of kilometers of pipeline remotely using sensor technology integrated with the EarthSearch proprietary GPS/RFID.

The solution centers around EarthSearch Solar Powered LogiBoxx integrated GPS/RFID system which can be deployed along oil pipelines to communicate with sensor based RFID tags. "One only need to look at the turmoil in the world, to understand the need to protect oil distribution lines, the market fluctuation in oil prices are causing havoc on the world economy," said Kayode Aladesuyi, CEO of EarthSearch.

The system uses GSM network for communication and is powered by solar technology which allows it to operate even in some of the most remote areas of the world. Any tampering with or attempt to break into the oil pipeline will cause the sensor technology to send an alert to EarthSearch's LogiBoxx using radio frequency.

"Countries like Nigeria and others are having a difficult time with theft of oil and breakage in the pipeline. We hope to bring solution to these markets to support the oil industry. We have begun to market the solution to Oil and Gas companies," said Mr. Aladesuyi.

"EarthSearch's focus on emerging markets is very strategic, we expect these markets (Africa, Middle East, Eastern Europe) to represent the fastest growth areas in the world's economy over the next decades," said Aladesuyi. "We are positioning ourselves to compete effectively even against some of the biggest players in these market."
