Northern Hemisphere Development Corp.: First Gas Well of the Season

Boogie Trutch/Trutch East Natural Gas Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2007) - Northern Hemisphere Development Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NHD) is pleased to announce the spudding of the a-38-A/94-G-15 development well in the Tommy Lakes Field located in the Trutch area of northeastern British Columbia. This well is targeting the Triassic Halfway formation. The Halfway formation is an areally extensive sand that offers low geological risk drilling opportunities and predictable production rates.

Focus Energy Trust (TSX:FET.UN) is the project operator. Once the new well is successfully drilled it will be completed and tied in with production commencing in early 2008.

NHD currently holds a working interest in three natural gas wells on the properties which have been in production since March, 2007. The Bougie Trutch/Trutch East properties have the potential to support numerous gas wells exploiting the gas bearing Halfway Formation which Focus has been developing on the nearby Tommy Lakes field.
