Sun Cal Energy Engages Stepp Law Group

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 31, 2010) -  Sun Cal Energy Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SCEY), reports that it has engaged the Stepp Law Group of Newport Beach to assist in the process of completing the company's filings and regaining its OTC BB listing status.

"We are committed to becoming a fully reporting entity once again," states Company president George Drazenovic. "The company will be providing an update to its shareholders regarding the ongoing operations in the very near future."

The company reiterates the following press release regarding its Kern County property:

On July 22, 2009, Occidental Petroleum Corporation announced that it had made a significant discovery of oil and gas reserves in Kern County, California. At the time of the announcement, Occidental believed there were between 150 million and 250 million gross barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) reserves within the outlined area where it drilled six wells to delineate the discovery.

Previously, in April 2007, Sun Cal Energy announced that it had exclusive oil and gas rights for the Lokern Prospect owning a 45% working interest in 480 acres of prime land in the oil and gas rich Kern County region, the most prolific area in the San Joaquin Valley in Southern California. Surrounded by oil fields that produce greater than 500,000 barrels of oil/day and with Occidental controlling a large amount of mineral rights and 3D seismic data covering the Lokern Property vicinity, the Company believed that it was well positioned to take advantage of increased activity in the area over the next few years.

Most recently, in March 2010, Forbes Magazine published an article suggesting that Occidental's discovery "is shaping up to be the biggest onshore oil discovery the U.S. has seen in three decades and likely holds more than one billion barrels of oil (and natural gas equivalents) that will be easy and cheap to extract." The Article further states that "the reservoir is 20,000 feet underground and could stretch 50 miles."

By all indications Sun Cal's property is within 3 miles of the initial discovery well drilled by Occidental Petroleum, and therefore is reasonably projected that its structure and scope runs through the Sun Cal property.

George Drazenovic, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Cal Energy, Inc., states: "We are pleased to update our shareholders and announce the recent discovery of this oil field by Occidental. We intend to explore opportunities to finance and develop this high impact opportunity, and to provide our shareholders the opportunity to participate in one of North America's most significant oil and gas discoveries in a generation."

With the stabilization of oil prices, the weakness in natural gas prices, and most importantly, the recent discovery of a massive and nearby oil field by Occidental, Sun Cal Energy has chosen to shift its primary company focus to developing its Lokern Prospect in California.
