Rockyview Energy to Host Investor Luncheons in Montreal and Toronto

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 14, 2005) -


Rockyview Energy Inc. (TSX:RVE) ("Rockyview" or "the Company") will be hosting luncheons in Montreal and Toronto for current and prospective investors.

The Montreal meeting will take place on Thursday, September 22 in the Oval Room of the Ritz Carlton Hotel, 1228 Sherbrooke Street West.

The Toronto meeting will take place on Friday, September 23 in the Toronto 3 Room of the Hilton Hotel, 145 Richmond Street West.

Registration for each meeting begins at 11:45 a.m. Lunch and a presentation by Rockyview's Chief Executive Officer, Steve Cloutier, will begin at 12:00, after which Mr. Cloutier will be pleased to answer any questions.

The Rockyview team comprises all the senior officers and several key technical staff from APF Energy Trust ("APF"), which was one of the best performing oil and gas trusts on the TSX from its initial public offering in late 1996 until its merger with StarPoint Energy Trust in June 2005. Over that period, APF unitholders enjoyed a 25% average annual return while daily production grew from zero to 18,000 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE").

Rockyview is 93% weighted to natural gas, with conventional and coalbed methane operations in the greater Wood River area of central Alberta. In addition to a production base of 1,000 BOE per day, Rockyview has identified 168 (93 net) drilling locations on its 55,000 net undeveloped acres of land. The Company intends to develop and optimize this asset base, as well as identify, evaluate and execute strategic acquisitions.

Reader Advisory

Forward Looking Statements - Certain information regarding Rockyview set forth in this news release, including management's assessment of future plans, contains forward-looking statements that involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond Rockyview's control, including the impact of general economic conditions, industry conditions, volatility of commodity prices, risks associated with the uncertainty of reserve estimates, currency fluctuations and the timing of listing of shares. Readers are cautioned that the assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although considered reasonable at the time of preparation, may prove to be imprecise and, as such, undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements.

The term BOE may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of six Mcf to one barrel is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. This conversion factor is an industry accepted norm and is not based on either energy content or current prices.

The Toronto Stock Exchange has neither approved nor disapproved of the contents of this news release.
