WINNIPEG, Aug. 11 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or, the "Company"), today
announced that the perforating and testing have been completed at the
Company's first two wells at Lloydminster, Alberta and that the results
indicate the wells will produce between 60 and 75 barrels of oil per day
The wells are currently being fitted with the required production
equipment and it is expected that both will be on production in the coming
days. Furthermore, testing will now begin on the third of the three
Lloydminster wells drilled recently, along with the four well bores that the
Company acquired earlier this year.
"When these two new wells come on production, we will nearly double the
Company's overall production totals from approximately 85 barrels of oil
equivalent per day (boes/d(*)) to between 145 and 160 boes/d," Mr. Benson
stated. "This will obviously have a positive impact on our revenue stream for
the balance of the year, and will be enhanced even further once the third
Lloydminster well and the four well bores are evaluated."
At Joffre, Alberta, where the Company presently has its six wells on
production, "we are currently in the process of licensing a new gas well,
which, we anticipate will be drilled in the next few weeks," Mr. Benson added.
At Preecevile, Saskatchewan, the Company has completed the cementing of
the existing perforations at its 14-14 well, which was initially drilled to
400 metres in 2005. The Company is now in the process of applying for a
re-entry license to the basement.
"This location was originally identified back in 2005 as the best
possible candidate for drilling based upon the analysis of the seismic data,"
said Brahm Silverstone, Nordic's consulting geo-physicist. "The seismic data
indicated that this location is on a seismic high with four-way closure."
Upon receiving the re-entry license, "we will arrange for a drilling rig
to be deployed to the site to commence drilling this well to the basement,"
said Mr. Benson.
