The report, not including reserves from the acquired interests of SPE, estimates net proved reserves of 1.2 million barrels of oil and 12.5 Bcf (billion cubic feet) of natural gas which translates to approximately $97.3 million undiscounted or $58.9 million discounted at 10 percent in net proved reserves for Strategic American Oil.

Strategic American Oil President and CEO, Jeremy G. Driver, stated "The acquisition of Galveston Bay Energy has proven to be a valuable investment as evidenced by our increasing reserves, production and drilling opportunities.
