Nordic Drilling Update



    WINNIPEG, July 8 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or, the "Company"), today
announced that the Company has commenced drilling its first well in
Lloydminster. The well will be completed shortly and the rig will then be
moved to the second of three drilling sites selected.
    "Given that this is development drilling, the wells will be put on
production as soon as possible," he stated. "Once on production, we will then
be in position to announce the initial flow rates from each well."
    In addition, Mr. Benson also stated that perforation and testing
continues at the Company's well at Preeceville, Saskatchewan and that
perforation and fracing have been completed at four intervals thus far, with
three additional intervals remaining.
    "Samples have been extracted from the formations and forwarded to an
independent laboratory for analysis," Mr. Benson said. "We expect to have
results from this analysis in the coming days.
    "Further updates will be issued when additional information becomes
available to us from the site," he added.
