Higher Oil and Falling Crude Inventories Increase Value Proposition for STWA's Products

Company's AOT™ and ELEKTRA™ Technologies Could Lead to Cheaper Extraction and Transport Costs for Crude and Increased Efficiency for Fuel Oil Engines

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - STWA, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO) ("STWA" or the "Company"), an innovative company creating technology focused on energy efficiency of large-scale energy production and improved fuel economy for diesel fleets, commented today that higher oil prices and falling crude inventories increase the value proposition for its technology for improving the efficiency and cost of large-scale energy transportation and reducing fuel consumption and emissions in diesel fleets.

On Tuesday, oil prices soared reaching their highest levels in more than two and a half years as violence spread in Libya and Colonel Moammar Kadafi's grip weakened over the country as protesters demanded he step down. Light, sweet crude for March delivery soared $7.37, or 8.6%, from Friday to settle at $93.57 barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the highest front-month settlement since October 3, 2008. With the expiration of the March contract, the more heavily traded April contract settled up $5.71, or 6.4%, at $95.42 a barrel. Brent crude added 4 cents to settle at $105.78 per barrel.

"The speed and capacity with which energy can be delivered and fuel efficiency increased are the key component drivers in today's energy production and industrial landscape," commented Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of STWA, Inc. "STWA's Applied Oil Technology (AOT™) has been proven in tests to reduce crude oil's viscosity. This can lead to more efficient oil transportation through pipelines on land and lower extraction costs and transportation for maritime pipeline operators. ELEKTRA™ works on the same principal. By reducing the viscosity of diesel fuel oil, fuel viscosity is significantly reduced and fuel flow is increased, resulting in improved fuel economy and reduced emissions in diesel engines."

Mr. Kyte added, "We are now in the process of testing a prototype of our AOT™ technology for at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center (RMOTC) in Casper, Wyoming under contract with the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI). This is an exciting development and we believe the development of an AOT™ product line has the potential to change how crude oil is transported around the world, resulting in significant cost savings and greater safety for pipeline operators as increased processing times allow for more downtime and maintenance."
