New Zone Now on Production at Nordic's Natural Gas Well at Lloydminster

WINNIPEG, Sept. 30, 2011 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and CEO of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. (the "Company" or "Nordic"), today announced that another zone is being placed on production in the Company's new gas well at Lloydminster, Alberta. The Company's 9-4-50-3 W4 natural gas well at Lloydminster was initially placed on production in July.

"Yesterday, we had 2100kpa of pressure on the casing of the 9-4-50-3 W34 well," Mr. Benson stated. "This well had sanded off and the previous operator allowed the lease to lapse.  As such, we intend to produce the new zone which we perforated in July up the tubing and the old zone up the casing."

Now that the Company has placed this new zone on production, "indications suggest this will be a very good well for us," he added.

Mr. Benson also stated today that Nordic has a number of additional things which it expects to conclude in the next week or so, which should have a positive impact on the price of the Company's stock.

"At Weyburn, we have completed the analysis of the three seismic lines acquired earlier this year on the existing property, and several potential drilling locations have been identified," he said. "We have exercised our option and it is our intention to undertake the drilling of an exploration well to test the Bakken zone during the fourth quarter of this year."
