Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd., Western Warner Oils Ltd. announce the formation of a new Company - Green Coal Canada Ltd.

New company to undertake exploration program at Drumheller

WINNIPEG, Sept. 19, 2011 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, President of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("the Company" or Nordic"), today announced that in conjunction with its sister company Western Warner Oils Ltd. ("Western Warner"), it has formed a new company, Green Coal Canada Ltd. ("Green Coal").

This will result in Green Coal Canada Ltd. issuing an equal number of shares to Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. & Western Warner Oils Ltd. Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. intends to declare a special share dividend consisting of shares of Green Coal Canada Ltd.

"An agreement has been reached whereby Green Coal Canada Ltd. will undertake an exploration program at the Drumheller, Alberta property where we have 3,856 hectares (9,528 acres) of coal leases," Mr. Benson stated. "The exploration program will include mapping the upper and lower Mannville coal formations from existing wells on our property, along with shooting some seismic."

It is anticipated that this exploration program will commence during the fourth quarter of this year. As such, Green Coal will be undertaking a Flow-Through Offering to finance these proposed expenditures.

In addition, it is also anticipated that Green Coal will embark upon a public offering in conjunction with listing the Company on a Canadian Stock Exchange. Furthermore, Green Coal will be obtaining an evaluation that is NI 43-101 (Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects) Compliant.

Nordic, in conjunction with Western Warner acquired the coal leases located at Drumheller on June 1, 2009, and has been giving some consideration to the possibility of using Underground Coal Gasification ("UCG").

"The basic UCG process involves drilling two wells into the coal - one for injection of the oxidants (water/air or water/oxygen mixtures), and another some distance away to bring the product gas to the surface." said Mr. Benson. "The technique offers an alternative to conventional coal mining methods."

Underground coal gasification boasts dramatic reductions in emissions, low energy costs and relatively minor surface footprints when compared to the surface and mining-based coal power plants commonly used throughout North America.
