Strategic American Oil Corporation Announces Acquisition of Five High Value 3D Seismic Databases


    CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, May 26 /CNW/ -- Strategic American Oil Corporation
(OTC Bulletin Board:   SGCA) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has
identified a significant Frio Sand (gas) target in South Texas through its
recently acquired 172 sq. mile 3D seismic database.  The target is an
anticlinal structure with 4-way closure covering portions of six sections. The
Company plans to lease approximately 1,000 acres over the identified structure
and proposes to drill one to two wells to test the Frio sand zones.  The
Company's exploration team believes the multiple Frio Sands identified in the
seismic profile could contain significant gas reserves (detailed geologic
information will be released upon completion of leasing).

    Company President and CEO, Randall Reneau, stated, "The identification of
this structure is a major development in the Company's ongoing exploration
program.  We believe this structure, in the prolific South Texas Frio Sand
trend, has the potential to be a significant gas and condensate producer. 
Developing prospects of this magnitude certainly justifies the recent
acquisition of the 3D databases, which allows us to search for potential oil
and gas bearing structures with a minimal cash outlay.  The identification of
this structure is exactly what we were hoping to find when we purchased the
databases.  The Company will continue to review and evaluate this first of a
total of five 3D seismic databases with the goal of developing additional

    3D seismic is a key tool in Strategic American Oil's exploration plans
for discovering new oil and gas reserves along the gulf coast.  3D seismic
surveys allow the company to better define prospective oil/gas structures and
pinpoint drilling locations thus increasing chances for successful wells. 3D
seismic has become an invaluable tool for developing drilling prospects and
has become the number one prospecting tool in today's oil and gas exploration
industry.  The technique is utilized by major oil and gas companies throughout
the world.
