WINNIPEG, Manitoba - (December 11, 2012) - Donald Benson, Chairman and CEO of Nordic Oil and Gas Ltd. (the "Company) TSXV: NOG), announced today that the Company has concluded an exchange of assets and settlement agreement with Western Plains Petroleum Ltd. ("Western Plains"), in the Lloydminster area. The result of this transaction will allow the Company to proceed with the tie in of its 11-13-38-25 W4 well, in Joffre, Alberta, which it received in the settlement last year with an unnamed company.
In addition, the Company will also now proceed to commence production from other wells in Joffre.
Commenting on this exchange of assets, Mr. Benson stated: "This important transaction with Western Plains allows us to capitalize on the improving price of Natural Gas. Where a company has natural gas assets drilled and tied into the system, the net backs are profitable."
The Company is targeting year-end production of 200 BOEs*.
