Nordic's New Belly River Well Tested 820 MCF/day



    WINNIPEG, Aug. 29 /CNW/ - Further to its News Release dated August 24,
2007, where Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. ("Nordic" or the "Corporation") announced
that the field measurement results from the flow test on the Corporation's
11th well in Joffre, Alberta, Canada showed that the middle Belly River zone
had gas rates of 18.5 10(3)m(3) at between 649.5 metres and 651 metres,
Chairman and CEO, Donald Benson, noted today that the combined 23 10(3)m(3)
for the three intervals within the well that was tested, equates to
820 MCF/day.
    "This is an extremely significant number and one that suggests to us that
we have the potential for a very strong producing well," he stated. "Once on
production, this well will have a significant impact on both our production
totals and, of course, our bottom line.
    "While we are anxious to bring this well onto production quickly, we also
recognize the wisdom of waiting until gas prices rise, whereupon we can then
realize values that are more meaningful and impactful to the Corporation."
    Nordic plans to tie this well into its pipeline system - a distance of
200 metres - and will begin to produce it during the 4th quarter.
