"It is our intention to use a large portion of the funds raised in this Offering to undertake the drilling of our first exploration well on our Weyburn/Bakken property in southeast Saskatchewan," Mr. Benson stated. "We feel that our Weyburn/Bakken property should be our top priority at this time and we would like to be in position to drill the first well early in the fourth quarter of 2011."
Upon analyzing the seismic shot in the region, Nordic's geophysicist has identified four potential drilling locations on the land. He notes that in addition to the Bakken, the seismic also indicates that both the Midale/Frobisher and Red River zones are prospective as well.
"The offsetting land in the area has been producing from the Midale zone since 1991," Mr. Benson added.
