Nordic Oil and Gas Announces Private Placement Flow-through Offering - Funds to Finance Drilling New Well in Bakken

WINNIPEG, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, President of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("the Company" or Nordic"), today announced a new non-brokered private placement offering (the "Offering") of up to 30,000,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.075 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $2,250,000. Each Unit of the Offering will consist of one Class A common share of the Company issued as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one-half of one Class A common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one regular Class A common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 per share for a period of 18 months from the date of issuance.

The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period from the date of issuance. The Company anticipates multiple closings of the Offering in the coming weeks.

Certain finders are expected to assist the Company by introducing potential subscriber(s) to the Offering and, subject to compliance with applicable legislation, will be entitled to receive fees equal to up to 10% of the purchase price of the Units sold pursuant to the Offering, as well as compensation warrants (the "Finder's Warrants") equal to up to 10% of the number of Units sold pursuant to the Offering. Each Finder's Warrant shall entitle the holder thereof to purchase one regular Class A common share of the Company at a price of $0.10 for a period of 18 months from the date of issuance.

All terms of the Offering are subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

"It is our intention to use a large portion of the funds raised in this Offering to undertake the drilling of our first exploration well on our Weyburn/Bakken property in southeast Saskatchewan," Mr. Benson stated. "We feel that our Weyburn/Bakken property should be our top priority at this time and we would like to be in position to drill the first well early in the fourth quarter of 2011."

Upon analyzing the seismic shot in the region, Nordic's geophysicist has identified four potential drilling locations on the land. He notes that in addition to the Bakken, the seismic also indicates that both the Midale/Frobisher and Red River zones are prospective as well.

"The offsetting land in the area has been producing from the Midale zone since 1991," Mr. Benson added.
