Nordic to Commence Drilling New Exploration Well in Lloydminster

WINNIPEG, Nov. 23 /CNW/ - Donald Benson, President & CEO of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("the Company" or" Nordic") announced today that the drilling rig is now on site at the Company's 12-14-50-2W 4M well in Lloydminster, Alberta, and that drilling will commence today.

Licensed last week as an exploration well, Nordic will drill this well deeper than it has at previous wells at Lloydminster, giving the Company additional targets that may also be oil bearing. Regardless of the outcome, the Company will still have a development well in the shallower zones if exploration in the deeper regions is unsuccessful.

"This is a very significant well for us and we look forward to the results from the drilling with great anticipation," Mr. Benson stated. Drilling is expected to take between three and four days to complete.
