Cascade Energy Acquires Interest in New Gas & Oil Discovery Near Empress, Alberta, Canada

SACRAMENTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 30, 2005 -- Cascade Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: CSCE) today is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired a 21% working interest in a new oil and gas discovery well, located near its Empress Play in Alberta, Canada. The new discovery at the 11-16-24-2W4M well is located in Twp. 24, Rge. 2 in Section 16. The well was drilled and cased on June 20th after intersecting three (3) potential hydrocarbon pay zones. A completion and testing program is now being developed and will commence within 10 days, subject to completion rig availability. Testing will be implemented in all three zones that indicate the presence of oil and gas on logs.

Section 16 where the well is located directly ties on to and is adjacent to the Empress Project, located in eastern Alberta, 160 miles east of Calgary, Alberta. Cascade has acquired the 21% working interest from an Alberta private company. Total costs and final terms for the acquisition will be announced when contracts are executed. Empress consists of 3 sections of Crown P&NG rights, and this newly acquired section gives Cascade an interest in four total sections.

Additionally, Cascade is preparing to drill a well on a similar structure to this new discovery on its 49% earn-in lands. Well licensing and permitting are currently underway for this location. A spud date is expected in July.
