NWOG to Participate in Kalmykia Auction

MOSCOW -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 1, 2007 -- North West Oil Group (PINKSHEETS: NWOG) -- On March 21, North-West Oil Group-Saratov, a division of NWOG Inc. will participate in an auction to acquire the right to explore and produce hydrocarbon material at the Yermolinsky subsoil plot (160 sq. km.). The plot is located in the Republic of Kalmykia south-southeast of Moscow on the Caspian Sea.

NWOG President Malyshev says, "This is an old field but our geologists believe that it may still have significant reserves in the deeper substrata."

The Yermolinsky field is 200 km east of Elista, capitol of Kalmykia. It was discovered in 1957 and produced hydrocarbon material from 1970 to 1978. In 1966, engineers discovered underlying gas deposits and registered the field as a condensate reservoir with the All-Union Geological Fund.

Further exploration is necessary to determine proven and probable reserves. However, comparable fields in the Kaspiysk-Kamyshanskoj anticline zone suggest it may have extensive hydrocarbon material that can be economically extracted.

About North West Oil Group (formerly Nord Oil International) North West Oil Group is a non-reporting, publicly traded Oil & Gas company trading under the ticker symbol NWOG on the U.S. Pinksheets market as well as on the Frankfurt Exchange under symbol CXIA.
