Cinch Energy Corp. Provides Operational Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Cinch Energy Corp. (TSX:CNH) ("Cinch" or the "Company") advises that it has drilled its 09-36-60-06W6M Cutpick well, in which it has a 45% working interest, to a total depth of 3334m and has cased the well to total depth to evaluate potential gas reservoirs in several zones. Appraisal of these zones will be undertaken as soon as a service rig is available and surface conditions permit.

Cinch will next move the rig from the above well to the Kakwa 10-18-61-4W6M location, in which the Company has a 100% working interest. This well is anticipated to spud as soon as surface conditions permit. Also in Kakwa, a non-operated well at Kakwa 14-23-61-5W6M, in which the Company has a 12.5% working interest, is expected to spud next week.

At Dawson B.C., the non-operated Dawson 1-32 Kiskatinaw test, in which the Company has a 36% working interest, was spudded last week.

Current net debt is approximately $20 million and the Company's credit facility is $33 million.

Barrel of Oil Equivalency

Natural gas reserves and volumes contained herein are converted to barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) on the basis of six thousand cubic feet (mcf) of gas to one barrel (bbl) of oil. The term "barrels of oil equivalent" may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of six mcf to one bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
