Stream Oil & Gas Ltd. - Operations Update and Q2 Results



    TSX-V: SKO

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 6 /CNW/ - Stream Oil & Gas Ltd. (Stream or the Company)
is pleased to provide the following operations update and summary of financial
results for its second quarter ended May 31, 2009:

    
    Operations Update

    -   Current average gross crude oil production is 470 bopd, 240 bopd net
        to Stream. Most of this production is sold to a local customer who
        pays in advance. Current average oil price received is about
        $40.00/bbl. Gas production is currently zero since the local
        refinery, Stream's only current gas consumer, has temporarily
        suspended operations due to maintenance and upgrades. Jointly with
        Albpetrol, the Company's gas customer, Stream continues to explore
        mitigation measures for this ongoing outage, while developing
        alternate gas utilization strategies.

    -   Due to the recent Albanian election, the Company has not yet
        finalized a resolution to the outstanding accounts receivable and
        royalty tax amendments to sales contracts with Albpetrol Sh.A and the
        ARMO refinery.

    -   The development plans for the Company's three oil fields are due
        September 9th 2009 and the Company is on track to file these by the
        deadline.

    -   Albpetrol has agreed to Stream's request for an extension of the
        evaluation and exploration phases of the Delvina (gas field)
        Petroleum Agreements to six and twelve months respectively. The
        extensions are subject to AKBN confirmation, expected shortly.

    -   The Company has engaged an independent petroleum engineering firm in
        Calgary to prepare a reserve valuation report in accordance with
        National Instrument 51-101 requirements. The Company expects that the
        report will be completed by the end of 2009.

    -   Stream has met all property expenditure requirements under its
        Petroleum Agreements and has deferred any significant capital
        expenditures pending fund-raising.
    

    Management Changes

    Under a revised agreement with Exergy Resources Inc., effective June 22,
2009, Wayne Arnold has been appointed Head of Stream's Oil Division. Mr.
Arnold will be responsible for generating the oil fields' development plans,
providing technical guidance to operations and rationalizing improved recovery
strategies. Mr Arnold brings extensive oilfield development and well
intervention/servicing expertise. In accordance with the revised agreement,
the Company granted stock options to Exergy Eams Inc. to purchase up to
490,000 common shares of the Company at $0.24 per share for three years,
subject to an 18 month vesting schedule in accordance with the Company's stock
option plan.
    Effective July 29, 2009, the Consulting Agreement with BA Capital Inc.
has been terminated.

    The Company

    Stream is a Canadian-based emerging oil and gas production, development
and exploration company with assets in Albania focusing on the re-activation
and re-development of three oil fields, and a gas and condensate field, all of
which are in production.
    Stream has entered into Petroleum Agreements with Albpetrol Sh.A. the

the Gorischt-Kocul, Ballsh-Hekaj, and Cakran-Mollaj oil fields, and the
Delvina gas field, and produce the remaining reserves. Takeover of the wells
is being completed in stages.
    Under the Agreements Stream is entitled to 100% of the incremental
production and a share of current baseline production. The operations are
subject to royalties of between 2% and 6% based on an R factor of revenues and
petroleum costs.
