ST. MARYS, W.Va., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trans Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: TENG), a pure play Marcellus Shale exploration and production company, today announced the appointment of Josh Sherman to the company's Board of Directors. Mr. Sherman will serve as an independent director for Trans Energy and lead the company's audit committee.  He will also serve as a board member of Trans Energy's wholly-owned subsidiary, American Shale Development, Inc..  The company further announced the resignation of Dr. Benjamin H. Thomas from the Board of Directors.

"We welcome Josh to our company's Board of Directors," said John Corp, President of Trans Energy.  "Josh's experience in the oil and natural gas industry, coupled with his in-depth knowledge and understanding of complex financial transactions, is particularly important as we grow our company's core position in the liquid-rich Marcellus Shale.  His expertise with SEC reporting practices will further help us explore a potential listing on the NASDAQ or NYSE, as well as, work on any capital initiatives that may be required in the future."

Mr. Sherman has more than 14 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, with an emphasis on financial reporting.  He is currently a partner at the energy focused consulting firm, Opportune, LLP, where he leads the firm's complex financial reporting practice.  Mr. Sherman further served as  Chairman of the Audit Committee of Voyager Oil and Gas, serving from November 2010 until that company's merger in July of this year.

In addition, Trans Energy, Inc. has announced the resignation of Dr. Benjamin H. Thomas from the Board of Directors of the Company and of its wholly-owned subsidiary, American Shale Development, Inc.  Dr. Thomas's desire to dedicate more time to his full-time teaching and consulting activities prompted his decision to resign.

Stephen Lucado, Director at Trans Energy said, "Ben's dedication and counsel to Trans Energy has been extremely helpful as we have worked to grow and develop our more than 62,000 gross acres in the core of the Marcellus.  We now have more than 400 potential drilling locations in Marshall, Wetzel, Tyler and Marion counties,  122 of which need only permits to drill thanks to hard working people at Trans Energy like Ben. We thank Ben for his hard work and wish him well in his endeavors."
