Middle Belly River Comes in Big at Nordic's New Well in Joffre



    WINNIPEG, Aug. 24 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or the "Corporation"), today
announced that the field measurement results from the two-day flow test on the
Corporation's 11th well in Joffre, Alberta, Canada have shown that the middle
Belly River zone had gas rates of 18.5 10(3)m(3) during a one hour flow test.
The Belly River formation where the measurement was taken was perforated at
between 649.5 metres and 651 metres.
    "The gas rate level at the 699.5-metre to 702-metre interval tested at
3.5 10(3)M(3)," Mr. Benson noted. "Given these excellent results, when
combined with the Basal Belly River results, we certainly are optimistic that
this will be a strong producing well for the Corporation."
    The Corporation plans to tie this well into its pipeline system -- a
distance of 200 metres -- and will begin to produce it during the 4th quarter
once gas prices rise.

    Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. is a junior oil and gas company engaged in the
exploration and development of oil, natural gas and Coal Bed Methane in
