Nordic Oil And Gas Now Producing 150 BOPD From Its Lloydminster Wells



    Six Wells Now on Full Production; Two Additional Wells Coming On Stream

    WINNIPEG, June 5 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or the "Company"), (TSXV: NOG)
today announced that the Company is now producing in excess of 150 barrels of
oil per day (BOPD) from its wells in Lloydminster, Alberta. When combined with
its natural gas and Coal Bed Methane production in Joffre, Alberta, Nordic is
now producing more than 200 BOE/d(*).
    "We now have all six of our wells on full production at Lloydminster
following a period when some were down for maintenance," he said. "Our sixth
well at Lloydminster was returned to production yesterday, bringing total
production for the last 24-hour period to 24m3 of oil/day or (150bbl/day). Our
revenue, with current Lloydminster price at $424/m3, equates to $10,000/day.
Clearly, this augurs well for a strong month of June and a very solid second
quarter."
    In the Company's guidance that was issued at the beginning of the year,
Nordic forecast that it would be producing 200 BOPDs of heavy oil from its
Lloydminster wells by the end of the second quarter. "With almost a full month
to go before the end of Q2, we are on track to achieve that goal," stated
Matthew Barnard, the Company's recently appointed Director of Operations at
Lloydminster.
    He also stated that this production number would rise even further before
the end of the quarter as the Company expects to license two additional wells
in Lloydminster next week and bring them on production before the end of June.
