Deep Well Oil & Gas Notes Farmout Agreement in Default

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 28, 2005) - Deep Well Oil & Gas, Inc. (PINK SHEETS:DWOG) ("Deep Well") wishes to announce that it has informed Surge that they are in default of the terms of the Farmout agreement on Deep Well's lands.

On February 25, 2005 Deep Well Oil & Gas, Inc. ("Deep Well") and its subsidiary, Northern Alberta Oil Ltd., signed a farmout agreement with Surge Global Energy, Inc and Surge Global Energy (Canada), Ltd. (collectively "Surge"). This agreement allowed Surge to earn up to a 40% working interest in the farmout lands. The agreement was amended on July 14, 2005 by Deep Well and Surge to allow Surge an extension to the February 25, 2005 agreement until September 25, 2005. Surge did not "spud" the first well by September 25, 2005 so the farmout agreement has been noted in default for this and other reasons.

Deep Well Oil & Gas, Inc. is a Nevada corporation based in Alberta Canada. Deep Well and its subsidiary Northern Alberta Oil have an 80% working interest in 63 contiguous sections of oil sands leases in the Sawn Lake oil sands in North Central Alberta, Canada.
