Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. Announces Closing of Private Placement Offering



    /THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR FOR
    DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES/

    WINNIPEG, Oct. 24 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. (the "Corporation"), today announced the
closing of the Corporation's previously announced private placement offering
of units (the "Offering"). The Corporation issued 1,375,000 units (the
"Units") at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of $275,000 to
various subscribers. Each Unit consisted of one Class A common share of the
Corporation issued as a "flow-through share" within the meaning of the Income
Tax Act (Canada) (a "Flow-through Share") and one half of one Class A common
share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder
thereof to purchase one regular Class A common share of the Corporation at a
price of $0.30 for a period of two years from the date of issuance. The
Flow-through Shares and Warrants will be restricted from transfer for a period
of four months and a day from the date hereof in accordance with applicable
securities laws and the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange.
    No finder's fees or commissions were paid and no broker warrants were
issued in connection with the Offering.
    "This latest closing means that we are approximately half-way toward
completion of our financing endeavours," Mr. Benson stated. "We are pleased to
have reached this point thus far, given that in these times few juniors are
receiving the endorsement of the financial community.
    "We have been buying assets of late rather than selling at discounts, and
we are confident that our investors will be rewarded for their support," he
added.
    The closing of the Offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX
Venture Exchange.
