Nordic Oil and Gas Provides Update on Drilling Activities at Endeavour, SK

WINNIPEG, Dec. 13 /CNW/ - An unforeseen difficulty in securing the services of a cementing company has resulted in a short delay to the start of drilling Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd.'s (the "Company" or "Nordic"), (TSXV: NOG) new exploration well in the Endeavour/Preeceville area of east-central Saskatchewan. However, the problem has now been resolved, the required services have been secured and work at the 4-11-35-4 W2 site is expected to commence tomorrow.

"We spent considerable time last week trying to secure the required cementing services, a vital component to the overall drilling process," said Nordic Chairman and CEO, Donald Benson.

"There are some 600 rigs working in the field at present and this has resulted in a shortage of some services required by Company's like Nordic who are trying to get a well started in a somewhat remote area," he added. "It was a frustrating few days however, now that a cementing company has become available and we have reached an agreement with them, we are anxious to get the drilling of our well started."
