Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd.: Private Placement and Acquisition Announced

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2007) - Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SOG) ("Strategic" or the "Company") wishes to announce that it will, subject to regulatory approval, issue up to 5,000,000 units at $0.40 per unit, for total gross proceeds of $2,000,000. Each unit consists of one common share and one half of a warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to subscribe for an additional common share for $0.60 for 12 months from closing. In addition, the Company will issue up to 3,000,000 commons shares at $0.50 per share on a flow-through basis, for total net proceeds of $1,500,000. This private placement will be non-brokered, but the Company anticipates paying compensation to finders and brokers that provide assistance in the placement.

Funds from this private placement will be used to fund the acquisition of a 5% working interest in approximately 160,000 acres in the northwestern Alberta, including all infrastructure and current production, and the Company's resulting obligations in respect to the ongoing 15 well winter drill program, ten targeting Keg River oil and five targeting Slave Point natural gas. The purchase includes an area of mutual interest covering over 1,000,000 acres of open Crown land. Strategic is advised that production from the property will be approximately 2700 BOEs (5% - 135 BOE) by December 31, 2007.

The Company is also in advanced stages of negotiations pertaining to a significant international opportunity, about which it anticipates making further announcements in early 2008.
