Sonoran Energy Commences Phase-2 Workover Program on High Impact Wells in Louisiana

PHOENIX, ARIZONA--(CCNMatthews - March 27, 2006) - Sonoran Energy, Inc. (OTCBB:SNRN), the fast growing international oil and gas exploration and production company, announced today that work has commenced on three high impact wells on Phase-2 of the work-over program on its Louisiana oil and gas properties. These three wells represent access to approximately 75 percent of Sonoran Energy's proven reserves in Louisiana. In addition, the Company reports that intervention work on its Phase-1 work-over program in Louisiana has resulted in production from three of four Phase-1 wells. These Phase-1 operations have resulted in production of over 100 BOE/day.

Peter Rosenthal, President and CEO of Sonoran Energy, stated, "The results of the Phase-1 work-over program represent a major milestone for Sonoran Energy as we move our dormant wells in Louisiana into production. We acquired these oil assets at a very reasonable price, and have now converted these valuable Louisiana properties from non-producing to producing. Phase-2 of the work-over program focuses on three of the highest impact wells in our Louisiana portfolio, which promise to add significantly to our production."

Initial wireline survey results, to confirm the current condition of these high impact wells, indicate that the problems associated with the wells may not be as severe as initially suspected. This should simplify the remedial work program being undertaken to bring the wells back into production.

An additional work program to re-activate the remaining well in Phase-1, and to improve performance from the existing Phase-1 wells, is being finalized and will be implemented immediately as materials and equipment are secured. This should bring us in line with the 200 BOE/day we expected to achieve in Phase-1. It is anticipated that the Phase-2 work will continue over the next several months running concurrently with the additional Phase-1 work.
