Capco Terminates Merger Talks With Pyramid and Announces Plan to Divest Certain Assets

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 19, 2007) - Capco Energy, Inc. ("the Company" or "Capco") (PINKSHEETS: CGYN) today announces that the Company has terminated its plan of business combination with Pyramid Petroleum, Inc ("Pyramid"), a related party. Instead the Company has contracted to sell a wholly owned subsidiary that has certain OCS producing properties to Pyramid at a contracted purchase price of $11 million. The sale is subject to obtaining a release from the Company's commercial lender and receiving a Fairness Opinion. The purchase price was determined primarily based upon the proved and probable reserves and miscellaneous other values attributed to the assets and is subject to adjustments for the net operating revenue from the properties for the period from January 1, 2007 to the closing date and working capital at the closing date. The Company has received a deposit of $200,000 and expects to receive approximately $6 million at closing. Proceeds from the sale shall essentially reduce Capco's debt with its commercial lender.

Capco will continue its operations of Texas offshore, onshore and Oklahoma properties with a significantly reduced debt burden and a substantial reduction in its G&A expenses. These remaining properties compromised approximately 65% of the Company's proved reserves at year-end 2006.
