Notes to Editors:

Northern  is  an  AIM  quoted oil and gas production, development, exploration and  asset  trading  company
focused  on  petroleum producing areas of low political risk in Europe. The Company strategy is  to  obtain
significant  and  concentrated  licence positions then add value at reasonable  risk  utilising  new  ideas
together  with new drilling, seismic, completion, field development and computer technologies to  establish
economic oil and gas production.

The  Company's activities are concentrated in three countries (The Netherlands, Italy and England) with the
risk  spread over more than 50 projects in 12 petroleum systems.  Following the recent acquisition  of  ATI
Oil  Plc, Northern holds approximately 103 million barrels of reported Proven & Probable Reserves.  It  has
interests in 4 producing fields, both onshore and offshore, one of which it manages.

The  development  of six onshore oil and gas fields is being progressed in The Netherlands  under  Northern
management (Northern Petroleum Nederland B.V.) with Dyas B.V., EBN, the Netherlands' state oil company, and
the Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij.

Northern  currently  manages the largest licensed exploration area in Italy, over 15,000km²,  predominantly
offshore, but which includes six onshore permits in the Po Valley gas and oil province in the north of  the

UK  production  comes from a 10% interest in the Horndean oil field and a 5% interest in the  Avington  oil
field, in West Sussex and Hampshire respectively. It also has planning consents to drill in the near future
an  eastward  extension of the Horndean oil field and an exploration well at Havant.  Northern  has  a  50%
interest in these ventures.
