Cascade Energy Drilling "Coyote Creek #1" Well

SACRAMENTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 12, 2005 -- Cascade Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: CSCE), today announces that the Company has spudded the "Coyote Creek #1" natural gas well over the weekend, and the well is drilling ahead. Cascade is earning a 49% working interest in the project by drilling, casing and completing one well on the leased acreage.

The Coyote Creek natural gas prospect is located at the northern end of the Sacramento Basin in Tehama County, California. The prospect is exploring for a new gas field, which is seven miles north of the Corning Gas Field that produced approximately 8 Bcf gas from the Tehama Formation. The primary objective of the prospect is the prolific Forbes Formation sands that represent the most prospective gas target at the Coyote Creek prospect. Estimated recoverable gas reserves range from a low-end case with one well of about 2 Bcf to a high-end case, with multiple wells and pay zones, of 28 Bcf. The "Coyote Creek #1" well is a 5,000-foot test well to the base of the Forbes.
