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

    SAN FRANCISCO, October 24 /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
Green River Basin of Wyoming is pleased to announce that drilling on the
Cunningham 1-02 well has reached a depth in excess of 14,000 feet.

    With a target depth of 20,500 feet, the well builds on the successful
drilling and commercial results of 1st deep development well, Sturgeon 1-11,
also drilled by the same operator and located within the Hobart Prospect. The
current flow rates from the Sturgeon 1-11 well are currently in excess of 3.3
mmcfd, and are expected to increase once the second and third pay zones are
commingled and put into production.

    Drilling on the Cunningham 1-02 well follows on the successful
commercialization of the Sturgeon 1-11 well and the recent application by
Range Resources for a third well, all located within the Hobart Prospect.

    Commenting on these developments, Lewis Dillman, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Sun Cal Energy Inc., states: "We are encouraged that the
operator has made significant progress on the Cunningham 1-02 well. If the
well is commercially successful, we will continue to add to our cash flow
beyond those already generated by our Centurion Property and Sturgeon 1-11

    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 testing and subsequent success on the initial development well,
subsequent drilling on the second deep development well and application for a
third well suggests that our strategy of acquiring properties with minimal
cost and significant potential is beginning to pay off. We look forward to
receiving further results on our wells within the Hobart Prospect," stated
Lewis Dillman. "Sun Cal will continue to explore opportunities to partner with
major industry leaders and develop drilling programs for its portfolio of oil
and gas assets in California, Louisiana and Wyoming."
