Sun Cal Energy Inc. Announces Drilling Activity of a Second Deep Development Well on Its Hobart Prospect in Washita County, Oklahoma

    SAN FRANCISCO, September 6 /CNW/ - Sun Cal Energy Inc., ("Sun Cal"),
(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
a second deep development gas well has been spudded, and is currently being
drilled on the Company's Hobart lease interest in Washita County, Oklahoma.

    The well, Cunningham 1-12, builds on the successful drilling of the
Sturgeon 1-11 well and the recent application by Range Production Co. for a
third well, all on Sun Cal's Hobart Prospect in Oklahoma.

    The target depth is the Springer Morrow, which has proved to be very
productive in Oklahoma and Texas. Sun Cal expects that the Springer Morrow
will be productive; noting that there are gas bearing shallower zones which
may also be commercial. No value has been assigned, pending definitive

    Commenting on these developments, Lewis Dillman, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Sun Cal Energy Inc., states: "The operator's testing and
subsequent success on the initial development well and subsequent drilling
activity on a second well on the Hobart Prospect validates our acquisition
strategy. With a second major operator, Range Production Co., also initiating
plans for a third well, we believe the Hobart lease will continue to offer
significant potential for development and lead Sun Cal to production and cash

    Sun Cal 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.

    "Today's exploration, drilling and production technologies increase the
success in finding significant new reserves and given the established regional
infrastructure in Oklahoma, enable new production to be brought on quickly.
The operators in the immediate area have demonstrated their ability to
leverage these advantages," stated Lewis Dillman: "Sun Cal will continue to
seek high impact prospects with minimal cost, low risk and the potential for
partnerships or joint ventures with major industry leaders."
