Sun Cal Energy Inc. Announces New Director

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2010) -  Sun Cal Energy Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SCEY) is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Member to the Board of Directors, Mr. Tim DeHerrera. Mr. DeHerrera has been President, Chairman or on the Board of Directors of several publicly traded and private entities during his career in corporate finance. Most recently he was President of a public company and he facilitated a reverse merger of that company that closed in May 2010. Additionally, during the past several years he has been a consultant to numerous companies in oil and gas exploration, technology and credit card financing. Mr. DeHerrera has extensive experience in investment banking, capital formation, capital restructures, private placements, lender negotiations and overall business development. 

"Mr. DeHerrera is a successful entrepreneur with 20 years of experience working in Corporate finance. His contribution will assist the Company in executing its strategic plans for 2010 and beyond," stated company President and Chief Executive Officer George Drazenovic. "Mr. DeHerrera's expertise will greatly assist the company in its endeavour to bring current its SEC reporting obligations."

The company continues to work with its professional consulting firm Xploration Inc. to analyze its current holdings and develop a cost effective Exploration and Development plan for the balance of 2010 and 2011.

The company is currently in negotiations with institutional investors for a financial facility for future Exploration and Development funds to be made available to the company prior to year's end. 

With the stabilization of oil prices, the weakness in natural gas prices, and most importantly, the recent discovery of a massive and nearby oil field by Occidental, Sun Cal Energy has chosen to shift its primary company focus to developing its Prospects in California.
