Nordic Licenses New Well in Joffre; Plans to Complete Workover on Another Well and Re-test Two Others

WINNIPEG, May 25, 2011 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and CEO of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. (the "Company" or "Nordic"), (TSXV: NOG), is pleased to announce that the Company has licensed a new natural gas well at Joffre, Alberta. The well, located at 11-18-38-24 W4 will be drilled off the 5-18-38-24 W4 well pad. Once the second well is drilled and completed, both wells will be tied in to the existing pipeline system.

In addition, the Company will also be completing a minor workover on its 16-20 well. It is anticipated that this will be completed by the end of the second quarter.

When these initiatives are completed, this will bring to 12 the number of natural gas and Coal Bed Methane wells on production at Joffre.

Furthermore, Mr. Benson also stated that two other wells in Joffre - the 6-24-38-25 W2 and the 10-12-38-24 W4 - will undergo further testing this summer.

"We are pleased to be moving forward with these initiatives in the coming weeks, and look forward to significantly increasing our production from the Joffre area by mid-year," he added.
