Delta Oil & Gas Completes Five-Well Drilling Program at Garvin & Murray Counties, Oklahoma

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - January 29, 2008) - Delta Oil & Gas, Inc. (OTCBB: DOIG) is pleased to announce that it has completed its five-well drilling program at Garvin & Murray Counties, Oklahoma (the "2006-03 Drilling Program") in which it held a 10% working interest.

Upon completion and testing of all the wells, it was determined that three of the wells should be completed in anticipation of the production of hydrocarbons. Subsequent to completion of these wells, two are economically viable at this time. The first of these successful wells resulted from drilling to a depth of 6,807 feet in the Plaster Prospect. The Plaster #1 well encountered sizeable hydrocarbon showings in the 2nd Deese Sand interval and is now producing in excess of approximately 625 mcf of natural gas per day with small amounts of associated oil. The second well which is currently producing is the Dale #1 which was a re-entry into an existing well. The total depth of this well is 5,400 feet and to date, the well has been producing in the range of 2 to 3 barrels of oil per day. The third well known as the Elizabeth #1-25 drilled in the Meridian Prospect has not yet produced anything and its viability remains unknown.

Although our success rate on the 2006-03 Drilling Program on a percentage basis was lower than expected, we are pleased with the production results from the Plaster #1 well. With the additional production from these two wells, we are increasing our cash flows from operations which is in keeping with our stated business model.
