Nordic Oil and Gas Licenses First Re-Entry Well at Lloydminster; Second Well to Follow

    Production Expected to Reach at Least 200 BOPD at Lloydminster

    WINNIPEG, June 11 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd ("Nordic" or the "Company"), today announced
that the Company has now licensed the first of its two new re-entry wells at
Lloydminster, Alberta, and that the service rig would be on site today.
Re-completion of the well will begin today and should be completed within five
days. Once completed, the rig will then move over to the second re-entry well
site, which is currently being licensed.
    In addition, Nordic also plans to drill a third well at Lloydminster,
which was licensed a few months ago. It is anticipated that the two re-entry
wells will be on production by the end of this month, while the third well
should be producing sometime in July.
    "This will bring to nine the number of heavy oil wells the Company will
have on production at Lloydminster," Mr. Benson stated. "In our News Release
dated June 5, 2009, we stated that the Company was producing 150 barrels of
oil per day (BOPD) from its six wells in Lloydminster. The addition of these
three wells should bring our total production in the area to at least 200
barrels of oil per day."
