Cash Flow

As of August 31, 2009, the Company's cash balance was $600,340. Accounts receivable from AlbPetrol sh.a (Albpetrol), net of Albpetrol's payable was $1,205,744 and accounts payable, not including amounts payable to Albpetrol was $1,588,553. Stream's working capital balance was $217,531. The Company continues to generate positive cash flow from operations.

On September 15, 2009, Stream entered into a formal agreement with Albpetrol sh.a whereby outstanding balances owed to Stream will be settled by Stream taking a total of 6,021.75 metric tons (About 42,152 barrels of crude oil) over a three month period beginning October 1, 2009. Stream will sell the crude to its main customer (GlobOil) under existing sales contracts. The contract with GlobOil is effective until December 31, 2009. The current price is LEK 26,000/ton ($40)/bbl and GlobOil continues to make weekly payments.

Production and Revenue

Under its Petroleum Agreements, Stream has the right to takeover a total of 574 wells, 244 of which are currently in production. To the end of its third quarter 2009, Stream has taken over a total of 87 wells, 44 of which are currently producing. No new wells were taken over in the third quarter of 2009 and average crude oil production at 240 bbls/day net to Stream was stable.

Revenues are net of the Albanian government's new 10% royalty. Stream's Petroleum Agreements include provisions for neutralizing the effect of this royalty and Stream is currently negotiating such amendments to its Agreements. Stream is confident that acceptable terms will be finalized within the next few months.

Following approval of the recently submitted Plans of Development (PoDs) for its three oil fields the Company will complete the takeover of the Cakran field, expected to begin before the end of the year.
