Lucas Energy Plans Acquisition of Nordic Oil Assets

Lucas Energy has signed a letter of intent to acquire Nordic Oil assets in the Eagle Ford Shale for a 12 month $22 million convertible note with a 6% interest rate.

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) announced today the execution of a non-binding letter of intent to acquire oil and gas assets from Nordic Oil USA I, LLP in Gonzales, Karnes and Wilson Counties, Texas, which represent all of Nordic 1's interests in the LEI 2009 II and III Capital Programs.
