Stream Oil & Gas Ltd. Operational Update



    TSX-V: SKO

    VANCOUVER, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Stream Oil & Gas Ltd. (the "Company") is
pleased to provide the following update:

    Crude Oil Pricing

    The Company has amended its Sales Contract with Albpetrol Sh.A and
effective August 1, 2008 the new price received by the Company for its crude
oil sales will be calculated based on the following formula

    
      Price = 100/1.8 + (Brent Average -100)/3 - 2.5 USD/bbl
    

    The Company previously received a fixed price for crude. August delivery
price increased by 53%, from USD$37.50/bbl to USD$57.40/bbl. The September
price will reflect international price changes.

    Production

    Production during the last quarter and as of September 30, 2008 has
increased by 29% from 126 bopd to 162 bopd. For the period during which the
Refinery is operational gas and condensate production levels remained the same
as the previous quarter at 356 Mcf/d gas and 11 bopd condensate. Net oil
inventory at the end of September was 1429 barrels of crude oil. Increased
crude oil production was mainly due to new reactivations and higher flow rates
obtained by the rehabilitation program initiated mid August and described
below.

    Rehabilitation Work

    The Company is also pleased to report that the first phase of radial
jetting has been completed on 4 selected production wells in the Ballsh-Hekal
and Gorisht-Kocul oilfields. Work started mid August and initial results to
the end of September indicated increased flow rates in all wells. PCP pump
installation in these wells was completed in October. The Company is currently
monitoring production results and will report them once they are stabilized.
In general a two-fold increase in production from those wells is sustained and
upon optimization of the PCP pump flow this can increase even further.
    The Company, based on these results, will plan a development program for
the above oil fields for early 2009. The Company also plans to organize a
second phase radial jetting for the Cakran-Mollaj oil field once the
appropriate rig is mobilized early 2009, subject to the Company's ability to
raise the required funds.

    Micro-fracture monitoring

    The Company has engaged Seismotech Ltd. to deploy micro-fracture
monitoring equipment, initially in the Cakran-Mollaj field and then in the
other two oilfields in order to map preferential fracture zones around the
wells and to direct radial jetting accordingly. This is work is subject to the
Company's ability to mobilize the rig as stated above.

    Q3 Results

    The Company's third quarter financial statements and management's
discussion and analysis for the three-month and ten-month periods ended August
31, 2008, are now available on SEDAR http://www.sedar.com and on the Company's
website http://www.streamoilandgas.com. Total revenue for the three month
period ended August 31, 2008 was $754,447 ($1,791,641 for the ten-month
period). Net loss for the three-month period was $225,844 ($767,064 for the
ten-month period)

    New Royalty Tax

    The Company, after modelling the impact of the new 10% Royalty Tax on its
financial projections, submitted to the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Energy
of Albania proposed terms to amend the current Agreements. The Company's
Agreements provide for amendments to minimize any economic impact from this
new tax. The Company believes that the proposed terms will be acceptable and
is waiting for a Ministerial response before proceeding with discussions with
Albpetrol to finalize and amend the Agreements appropriately.
