Strategic American Oil Corporation Accepts Purchase Offer for Louisiana Leases

    CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, June 23 /CNW/ -- Strategic American Oil
Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board:   SGCA; the "Company") is pleased to announce
it has accepted an unsolicited offer to acquire all of the company's interest
in leases and production in Franklin and Richland Parish, Louisiana from
Frazier Resources Company, Houston, Texas.  Under the terms of the offer, the
Company would receive 75% of a $775,000.00 cash payment, or $581,250 for the
Company's 75% interest in the Holt, Strahan and Dixon leases.  The Company
originally acquired the producing leases in the 4th quarter of 2006 for
$250,000.  Frazier Resources is currently engaged in a review of the Company's
leases, assignments, lease operating expenses, and related documents.  Upon
successful completion of Frazier's due diligence review, the parties will
execute a "Letter of Intent" outlining the final sales terms and subsequently
close the transaction.

    Company President and CEO, Randall Reneau, stated, "Although acquiring
properties, both developed and undeveloped, is the core of our current growth
model, the Company could not turn down such an attractive offer that will give
the Company a strong return on its original investment while increasing our
cash position without diluting our share capital.  The sale of these leases
will allow us to focus on larger reserve plays, including a 3D seismic target
in S. Texas and an enhanced oil recovery project in Jefferson County,
Illinois, both of which have potential significant reserves."
