Sun Cal Energy Inc. Announces Application of a Third Deep Development Well on its Hobart Prospect in Washita County, Oklahoma



    SAN FRANCISCO, August 28 /CNW/ - Sun Cal Energy Inc. (NASD OTC BB: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 Range Production
company has filed for a third well to be drilled on Sun Cal Energy Inc.'s
Hobart Prospect in Oklahoma.

    This development follows the recent application for a permit to drill and
test a second deep development well, Cunningham 1-2, on its Hobart Prospect in
Oklahoma. The proposed well also builds on the successful drilling of the
Sturgeon 1-11 well, also located in the Hobart Prospect. Currently, Marathon
Oil is undergoing fracing operations, and is in the completion process of this
well.

    Commenting on these developments, Lewis Dillman, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Sun Cal Energy Inc. states: "We are excited that a second
major operator has expanded its exploration program on our acreage. The
application for a third well to be drilled on the Hobart Prospect represents
another significant step for our Company as we continue to build towards
production and cash flow."

    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.

    Filed before the Corporation Commission of the State of Oklahoma, Range
Production Company is seeking to establish a 640-acre drilling and spacing
unit for a third scheduled well to be drilled in the Hobart Prospect.

    "We have seen initial success on the first well drilled on our Hobart
Property and recently we received confirmation on the second development well
to be drilled. Now we have the activity of another major operator on the
Prospect. This activity leads us to anticipate the commercial potential for
existing hydrocarbons on the Hobart Prospect will soon be determined," stated
Lewis Dillman. "This initial success helps validate the Sun Cal development
strategy of acquiring properties with significant potential, low cost, and
possible partnerships or joint ventures with major industry leaders."
