Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd Resumes Oil Delivery to the Rainbow Pipeline; Production for September Exceeds 1250 BOED

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 28, 2011) - Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Strategic" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SOG) is pleased to announce that it has resumed oil delivery at the Rainbow pipeline. The production for the month of September exceeds 1250 BOED.

Corporate Production

The Rainbow pipeline which transports the Corporation's Steen River crude oil to market was shut in due to a pipeline breach which occurred in late April, 2011. As a result Strategic was forced to shut in 75% of its production at Steen River. The pipeline resumed operation August 29, 2011. Strategic has been transporting oil to the Rainbow pipeline for the past 30 days.

During the month of September Strategic's estimated production has exceeded 1250 BOED.

Steen River

Strategic has drilled the first horizontal well in the Sulphur Point zone at Steen River. The well is currently being completed.

Strategic is currently drilling its third vertical Keg River well at Steen River. This is the first vertical Keg River well in the 2H11 drilling program at Steen River.


Two wells were drilled in the 3Q11 at Maxhamish. The first well, AD18J, was rig released on August 14, 2011 and the second well, B19J, was rig released on September 24, 2011. AD18J drilled for a horizontal length of over 1400 m. This horizontal well has been multi-stage frac'd and is currently being swabbed.

The B19J well drilled for a horizontal length over 1600 m. This well is scheduled to be multi-stage frac'd in October 2011.

Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements as the assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although considered reasonable at the time of preparation, may prove to be imprecise and actual results, performance or achievements could materially differ from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements and accordingly, no assurance can be given that any of the events anticipated by forward looking statements will transpire or occur, or if any of them do so, what benefit Strategic will derive there from.

BOE PRESENTATION: Barrel ("bbl") of oil equivalent ("boe") amounts may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. All boe conversions in this report are calculated using a conversion of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one equivalent barrel of oil (6 mcf=1 bbl) and is based on an energy conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
