Nordic Oil and Gas Lining Up Acid Pumper and Other Services to Undertake Acid Squeeze at its 4-11 Well in Endeavour, SK

WINNIPEG, May 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and CEO of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. (the "Company" or "Nordic"), (TSXV: NOG) announced today that services are being lined up to undertake the acidization of the Company's  4-11-35-4 W2 well drilled this past December in Endeavour, Saskatchewan.

"We are now in the 'queue' with the acid pumper and we are arranging for the other services for the work to begin by the end of June," Mr. Benson stated. "We are anxious to get back to the well site and move forward as quickly as possible."

In January of this year, analysis of 11 fluid samples from the well exhibited significantly high concentrations of benzene indicative of oil accumulations. Following his interpretation of these samples, Paul Lafleur, P. Eng.*, President of Petro-Find Geochem ("Petro-Find"), the Company that made the discovery of the initial oil seeps back in 2008, stated: "Of particular significance is swab PB26Z (combined swab for intervals 937-939.5, 927-930, 917-920.5,), which shows a benzene level of 2.55 PPM, plus significant concentrations of toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylene, along with an abnormally high concentration of C8-C10 (2.8 PPM)."

Nordic also shot a video of the well, along with a selection of still shots through the use of down-hole camera equipment, which provided high resolution visuals of the four intervals that were perforated and swabbed. "In every zone the video clearly shows in-flow from some of the perforations," Mr. Benson said. "However, in the majority of cases, perforations which were adjacent or nearby to those showing in-flow, appeared to be plugged."
