Sun Cal Energy Inc. Announces Engagement of Schlumberger to Conduct a Reserve Analysis and Drilling Program for its Jonah Prospect

    SAN FRANCISCO, December 27 /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 it has engaged
Schlumberger to conduct a reserve analysis and target drilling program on its
Jonah Prospect.

    A leading global engineering firm, Schlumberger has been involved in the
development of the Lance reservoirs at the Jonah Field since its discovery in
the 1980s. With unique experience in the area, Schlumberger has been engaged
to determine potential production rates, gas in place and estimated ultimate
recoveries for prospect. It has also been engaged to provide an evaluation and
recommendation for drilling locations and acquisition of additional data/
seismic to optimize drilling. The results of the study are expected within
mid-January 2008.

    Commenting on these developments, Lewis Dillman, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Sun Cal Energy Inc. states: "We are excited to be
involved with Schlumberger, and in particular, look forward to drawing upon
their breadth of expertise in full field development plans of the Jonah area.
With 93% natural gas drilling success rates in the entire state of Wyoming in
2006, Schlumberger's extensive geological and geophysical expertise will only
serve to further enhance our likelihood of drilling success."

    This engagement follows the recent independent results obtained from
Heinz Geological estimating average well reserves of .8 BCF; with 20 acre well
spacing, potential reserves could reach 324 BCF. It also follows statistics
published by the Petroleum Association of Wyoming stating that of the 3,243
wells drilled and completed in 2006, 166, or 5.1% found oil, 3,009 or 92.8%
found gas, and only 68 or 2.1% were dry holes.

    As stated by Lewis Dillman: "Given the results of the Heinz study and
inherent likelihood of success in the area, we are eager to utilize
Schlumberger's network, technical expertise and experience to further enhance
our plans to develop the Prospect and thus maximize value to our
