Nordic Oil and Gas Receives Updated Information from Consultant on Preeceville Oil Seeps - One Area Seen to Extend 400 Feet


    Company Also Announces New Private Placement Offering

    WINNIPEG, Nov. 30 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or the "Corporation"), today
announced that the Corporation has received additional data and interpretation
from Petro-Find Geochem Ltd., the company hired by Nordic that discovered the
evidence of oil seeps in its two most northerly townships in Preeceville.
    It was originally thought that Petro-Find had discovered 29 locations,
however this has been updated to 34, "because several locations were
amalgamated as one showing," noted Paul Lafluer, President of Petro-Find.
    "Altogether, evidence of oil seeps was found at 34 locations with at
least 4 major areas, including one extending 400 feet along the Pewei River,"
Mr. Lafleur added. "The seeps are interpreted to be leakages from faults
intersecting oil reservoirs at depth. Further field work is required to
ascertain the full extent and pattern of these leakages. Correlation of the
seepages with the geochemical soil gas survey is expected by mid-December."
    Given this new information, Mr. Benson also announced today that the
Corporation intends to undertake a new non-brokered private placement offering
of up to 10,000,000 units at a price of $0.30 per Unit for gross proceeds of
$3,000,000 to various subscribers. Each Unit would consist of one Class A
common share of the Corporation issued as a "flow-through share" within the
meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and one half of one Class A common
share purchase warrant. Each whole Warrant would entitle the holder thereof to
purchase one regular Class A common share of the Corporation at a price of
$0.40 for a period of two years from the date of issuance.
    Certain finders are expected to assist the Corporation by introducing
potential subscriber(s) for the new Offering and, subject to compliance with
applicable legislation, will be entitled to receive fees equal to 6% of the
purchase price of the new Units sold pursuant to the new Offering as well as
warrants ("Additional Finder's Warrants") equal to 8% of the number of new
Units sold pursuant to the new Offering. Each new Finder's Warrant shall
entitle the holder thereof to purchase one regular Class A common share of the
Corporation at a price of $0.40 for a period of 24 months from the date of
    The Corporation anticipates multiple closings throughout December.
    All terms of the new Offering are subject to the approval of the TSX
Venture Exchange.
    "It is our intention to use the money raised to finance the drilling of
three new wells in Preeceville," Mr. Benson said. "As we have stated
previously, when we receive the completed geochemical soil gas survey from our
consultant, Petro-Find Geochem, we will then be in position to correlate this
information with our proprietary seismic surveys. This will provide us with a
clearer understanding of the underlying structures, which in turn will give us
a better idea as to where the wells should be drilled."
