                                        Northern Petroleum Plc
                                     ("Northern" or "the Company")
                                                   
                                   Total Voting Rights - Correction

Following  Northern Petroleum Plc's announcement as of 07.00am, Monday 30 November  2009,  the  issuer
wishes  to  advise  that  a correction has been made to the first line of the second  paragraph  which
inadvertently stated the issued share capital of the Company as 78,885,326 ordinary shares, instead of
the correct figure of 78,987,248 ordinary shares.

The full corrected announcement follows:

In  conformity  with the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules, Northern would like  to  notify  the
market of the following:

As of 30 November 2009 the Company's issued share capital consists of 78,987,248 ordinary shares of  5
pence  each  with voting rights. Northern does not currently hold shares in Treasury.  Therefore,  the
total number of voting rights in Northern is 78,987,248.

The  above  figure may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by  which  they
will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the
ordinary shares of Northern under the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
