Nordic Oil and Gas Receives License for First Well at Preeceville

    WINNIPEG, March 7 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or, the "Company"), today
announced that the Company has received the first well license with regard to
its upcoming drilling program at Preeceville, Saskatchewan, Canada. Amendments
are currently being made to the survey for the second well license, and the
Company expects that this well will be licensed sometime next week.
    "We are currently awaiting approval from Saskatchewan Environment, which,
when received, will allow us to proceed with the commencement of drilling
these wells," Mr. Benson stated.
    Furthermore, also at Preeceville, Mr. Benson noted that Petro-Find
Geochem Ltd. who undertook the hydrocarbon soil gas surveys in Nordic's most
northerly permit in Townships 40, Ranges 4 and 5 W2 in Preeceville that led to
the discovery of the 34 oil seeps last October, is in the midst of a follow-up
survey in the region. The survey, which is being concentrated on the Nordic
lands in Townships 38 and 39, Ranges 4 and 5, has resulted in 200 additional
samples having been taken to date. These samples have been forwarded to the
University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon for analysis.
