    Default Nor or Or?

    Hello everyone.
    I'm not sure which of the statements below, if any, is grammatically correct:

    1- They cannot expedite the process or offer a specific time frame.
    2- They cannot expedite the process nor can they offer a specific time frame.
    Could you please correct the probable mistakes, or suggest a better form to convey the same message?
    Thank you.

    Or:
    They can neither expedite the process nor offer a specific time frame.
