Northern Hemisphere Development Corp. Operational Update

Boogie Trutch Natural Gas Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 24, 2008) - Northern Hemisphere Development Corp. (TSX VENTURE:NHD) is pleased to provide details on recent operational success in the Bougie Trutch area west and adjacent to the Tommy Lakes field.

Project operator Focus Energy Trust (TSX:FET.UN) has now finished drilling and completing the new a-38-A/94-G-15 Halfway development well. The Halfway well is currently being equipped and tied in to existing infrastructure. NHD has a 10.5% interest in this well.

The new a-38-A/94-G-15 well will increase NHD's production in the area and will result in NHD having four Halfway producers in the Bougie Trutch project. The Triassic Halfway formation is a really extensive gas charged sand that can support numerous gas wells. Further information will be released when available.
