Analysis of Preeceville Oil Seeps Confirms the Presence of Oil



    WINNIPEG, Nov. 16 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. (TSXV: NOG) ("Nordic" or, "the Company"),
announced today that the laboratory analysis on the oil seeps discovered in
Preeceville, Saskatchewan, Canada has confirmed the presence of oil in the
first samples received. Analysis of additional samples is currently being
completed and results from these tests are expected shortly.
    Commenting on the analysis received to date, Paul Lafleur, P. Eng.,
President of Petro-Find Geochem Ltd., the company hired by Nordic to undertake
hydrocarbon soil gas surveys in its two most northerly townships in
Preeceville, and who made the discoveries of the oil seeps said: "It is my
belief that all of the seeps encountered are from crude oil in a yet to be
determined formation."
    The initial samples from the Geo-Chem survey indicated the presence of
methane, ethane and propane, along with a strong concentration of butane.
    Looking ahead, Mr. Benson stated that the Company looks forward to
receiving the complete results of the Geo-Chem survey and the further analysis
of the oil seeps, "at which time we will be able to correlate this information
with our existing seismic we have already completed over these lands.
    "If necessary, a small seismic survey may also be required prior to the
drilling of a well," he added.
