Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. Announces Additional Debt Exchanges; Unsecured Debt Now Down $77 Million


Northern Oil and Gas, Inc. (NYSE:NOG) today announced that it
has entered into two additional independent, separately negotiated
exchange agreements with holders (the "Investors") of its 8% senior
unsecured notes due 2020 (the "Notes"). Together the agreements
represent a debt reduction of $13.5 million par value of Notes. Through
these and other recently announced exchanges since the beginning of June
2018, Northern has entered into agreements to retire $77.2 million of
its remaining Notes, permanently reducing interest expenses by $6.2
million on an annual basis.

In the first exchange for the Notes, Northern will initially issue
3,244,657 shares of common stock to the Investor in exchange for
$11,954,000 par value of Notes, and may be required to issue additional
shares to the Investor based on Northern's stock price performance over
a specified period. In the second exchange for the Notes, Northern will
issue $1,567,500 in common stock to the Investor in exchange for
$1,500,000 par value of Notes, with the number of shares of common stock
determined based on a forward pricing mechanism.


"Northern's balance sheet is now undeniably strong as we focus on
closing our pending Pivotal and W Energy acquisitions," said Nick
O'Grady, Northern's Chief Financial Officer. "The continued improvement
of our credit metrics combined with the substantially accretive per
share metrics of our stated growth strategy will create value for the
foreseeable future."

This announcement is neither an offer to exchange nor a solicitation of
an offer to exchange any securities. The exchanges are exempt from
registration under Section 3(a)(9) of the Securities Act of 1933.
