CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2011) - Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Strategic" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SOG) is pleased to announce drilling results from the Keg River vertical well at Steen River.

KEG RIVER VERTICAL WELL: 100/15-22-122-21W5M

Strategic drilled its third successful Keg River Well in the North Marlowe oil pool at Steen River.

  • Rate: The well has been on production for 11 days at stabilized test rates of between 225 to 250 BOEPD. IP30 is expected to exceed 200 BOEPD.
  • Oil Cut: The well is producing 100% clean oil with associated solution gas.
  • Pay: The well penetrated a dolomite zone with over 12 meters of net oil pay and is structurally the highest well in the pool.
  • Pressure: The well tested close to virgin reservoir pressure.
  • Pool: The well confirms the lateral extent of the oil pool and the porosity mapping derived from the 3D seismic.
  • Cost: The well was drilled and completed for approximately $1.7million.

Strategic has a 100% working interest in the North Marlowe Keg River Pool and plans to drill three additional vertical Keg River wells in the first quarter of 2012.

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.
