SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 7, 2011) - STWA, Inc. (OTCBB: ZERO) ("STWA" or the "Company"), an innovative company creating technology focused on energy efficiency of large-scale energy production and improved fuel economy for diesel fleets, highlighted today a key report issued by the American Petroleum Institute (API) which states that between 2000 and 2010, the U.S. based oil and natural gas industry invested $71 billion in greenhouse gas mitigating technologies in North America. This is far more than the $43 billion invested by the federal government and almost as much as the $74 billion invested by the rest of private industry combined between 2000 and 2010. A full copy of the report can be found at the end of the summary article on API's website at:

STWA's Applied Oil Technology (AOT™) improves the efficiency with which oil flows through pipelines. As reported by the U.S. Department of Energy, AOT™ increased pipeline efficiencies by 13.14% to 13.55% when AOT™ was running at just one-third of its intended power capacity. AOT™ therefore has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions created in the transport of oil by a similar percentage.

"This $71 billion number shows that the oil and gas industry is investing heavily in greenhouse gas reducing and alternative technologies, while the U.S. government projects that oil and gas will continue to be our nation's main source of energy for decades to come," stated STWA Chairman and CEO, Mr. Cecil Bond Kyte. "The wide scale adoption of AOT™ at oil pump stations across the U.S. would result in a very favorable impact for the environment and the oil industry."

"We continue our very productive research, development, and cooperative efforts with oil industry organizations and the U.S. Government's Department of Energy," concluded Kyte.

STWA has already received funding from the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI), the energy pipeline industry's global collaborative research development organization. PRCI supported STWA's AOT™ field test conducted in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) at the Rocky Mountain Oilfield Testing Center (RMOTC) in Wyoming.
