Sun Cal Energy Inc. Announces Successful Drilling of the Cunningham 1-02 Well to Target Depth of 20,500 feet.



    SAN FRANCISCO, December 19 /CNW/ - Sun Cal Energy Inc. (OTCBB:SCEY), an
energy exploration company focused in the Southern San Joaquin Valley of
California, the Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma, the Breton Sound of Louisiana and
the Green River Basin of Wyoming is pleased to announce that drilling of its
second deep development well on the Hobart Prospect in Washita County,
Oklahoma, has reached target depth of 20,500. It is expected that completion
operations on the Cunningham 1-02 well will commence shortly.

    Successful drilling to target depth follows on the commercial results of
the first deep development well and the filing by Range Resources before the
Corporation Commission of the State of Oklahoma to seek a third scheduled well
both within the Hobart Prospect.

    Commenting on these developments, Lewis Dillman, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Sun Cal Energy Inc. states: "We are excited that a second
deep development well has reached target depth on our Hobart Prospect. With
completion operations expected shortly, we are encouraged about the
possibility of receiving commercially viable results on yet another well
within our portfolio of oil and gas assets."

    Sun Cal Energy Inc owns a 1.5% gross overriding royalty interest in the
1211 acre Hobart prospect strategically located in the Anadarko Basin and part
of the Springer Morrow play - the largest such play in the State and
Mid-Continent. Key players running rigs in the immediate area include Marathon
Oil, Chesapeake Energy, and Range Resources.

    "The successful drilling of a second deep development well to target
depth represents another key milestone as we continue to seek cash flow and
production," stated Lewis Dillman: "Sun Cal will continue to focus on
developing its assets, and seek possible partnerships or joint ventures with
major industry leaders to maximize value to our shareholders."
