    TSX-V: SKO
    CNQ: STRM

    VANCOUVER, Aug. 5 /CNW/ - Stream Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Stream" or the
"Company") is pleased to provide the following update on its rehabilitation
and development projects in Albania:

    Rehabilitation work

    The Company has received its first PCP (Progressive Cavity Pumps) and has
initiated work-overs of selective wells by installing these pumps and applying
perforations and acidizing. The results of these rehabilitation tests will be
announced once testing and production control have been completed.

    Radial jetting tests

    Radial jetting tests in selective wells are planned to begin mid-August.
The Company has agreements with Well Enhancement Services LLC. USA and Coil
Services Netherlands to execute this work.

    Gas Plant Scoping Study

    Poyry Energy (Italy) provided a proposal dated June 30, 2008 and Stream
has now engaged them to provide a scoping study for a gas fired powered plant
on the Delvina gas field

    Agreements

    Management is currently finalizing agreements with various field service
companies and is discussing alliances with other Albanian operators to
maximize value.

    Albanian fiscal changes

    The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Energy of Albania has informed the
Company that an amendment to the National Tax Law has been made to establish a
minimum 10% Royalty Tax to all contractors on the gross revenue of petroleum
produced. Stream's Petroleum Agreements with the Albanian Government provide
for amendments to eliminate any negative economic effects on Stream. The
Ministry of Trade Economy and Energy, Albpetrol S.A. and the National Agency
for Natural resources has undertaken to consult with the Company, and will
take incentive actions and make necessary amendments to the current Agreements
in order to eliminate any economic impact to Stream resulting from the 10%
Royalty Tax.

    Financial Results for the seven month period ended May 31, 2008

    The Company has filed with the Canadian securities commissions, its
unaudited, consolidated second quarter financial statements and management's
discussion & analysis (MD&A). These filings are available on SEDAR
www.sedar.com and the Company's website: www.streamoilandgas.com
