Tests Designed to Measure Increased Efficiency From Use of AOT™ Technology in Multi-Billion Dollar Oil Services Industry

SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - December 27, 2010) - STWA, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO) ("STWA" or the "Company"), an innovative technology company focused on improving the efficiency of large-scale energy transportation networks and reducing fuel consumption and emissions in diesel fleets, announced today that it is set to begin preliminary testing for AOT™ at the U.S. Department of Energy's RMOTC (U.S. DOE) testing facility in Casper, Wyoming, in January 2011.

The Company has been working closely with industry partners on the engineering, fabrication and finalization of the AOT™ product prototype that will be used at the DOE's Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center (RMOTC). The testing will measure the value AOT™ has to industry and key stakeholders in reducing the cost of transportation of crude oil through pipelines under real world conditions on a live pipeline built exclusively to evaluate the technology. STWA's AOT™ is a new technology for reducing crude oil's viscosity that can lead to more efficient oil pipeline and crude oil transportation for land-based and maritime pipeline operators by reducing both operation and fuel consumption costs.

"Our team has worked diligently to design and fabricate the initial AOT™ prototype, as well as develop the test protocols. This has been a priority since mid-September, which is to be concluded in the final protocol review with the scheduled site visit to Colfax Corporation the first week in January," stated Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte, Chairman and CEO of STWA, Inc. "We are all set up now begin initial baseline testing next month. The physics and engineering that have gone into developing an AOT™ prototype have resulted in a product that has the potential to change how crude oil is transported around the globe. The value AOT™ presents to industry is extremely significant, especially in low temperature, heavy crude extraction points and sub-sea operations and can provide for enhanced pipeline transmission systems." Mr. Kyte added, "We are very excited to have reached this stage, and believe that the potential impact of AOT™ on the global energy supply delivery industry is enormous. The testing at the DOE represents a significant milestone towards realizing the commercial application of our technology."
