Blaze Energy Begins Drilling

Blaze Energy Starts Drilling First Well in Fayetteville Shale Play

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - Blaze Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: BLZE), a majority-owned subsidiary of Environmental Energy Services, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EESV), announced today that drilling began in the Fayetteville Shale play in late September.

Blaze Energy is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company. Its principle asset is in the Fayetteville Shale natural gas play, where it participates in over 45,000 gross acres of exploration. Blaze Energy believes that the Fayetteville Shale field represents one of the most promising unconventional gas finds in the United States.

"We are extremely excited and pleased that we have begun drilling on our first well in the Fayetteville Shale play," said Dr. A. Leon Blaser, CEO of Blaze Energy. "We expect to see significant positive results from this well and others we have planned in the area."

Blaze Energy will release the results of the first well as they become available. The operator of the field is analyzing core samples as drilling continues, which will delay the release of results of this first well. Results regarding future wells are not expected to take as long as the first well.
