Blaze Energy Closes First Regulation D

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - Blaze Energy (PINKSHEETS: BLZE), a subsidiary of Environmental Energy Services, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: EESV), announced today that they have closed a Regulation D (Reg D), Private Investment in Public Equity (PIPE-1), one round of funding valued at $2 million. The deal closed quickly, demonstrating the momentum and forward movement of Blaze Energy.

Blaze Energy is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company. Its main asset is in the Fayettville Shale natural gas play where the company 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. This is significant for the United States as they have seen a dramatic increase in the prices of energy in the past few years. Blaze Energy will bring a product from U.S. soil to self sufficiently meet the nation's energy needs.

"Closing quickly on this Reg D gives us great confidence for Blaze Energy," said Mike Thompson, President of Blaze Energy. "It demonstrates that the company, investors and the public are obviously seeing the value of our efforts as reflected by the price of Blaze Energy's stock. We will be opening another Reg D soon, which is expected to close quickly as well."

The proceeds from this offering will be used for drilling costs and general corporate operating expenses.
