Key Highlights and Recent Press Latest News: October 4th American Petro-Hunter Prepares NOJ26 for Commercial Oil Production at North Oklahoma Project American Petro-Hunter, Inc. is pleased to advise that the previously announced plans for completion of the NOJ26 well at the North Oklahoma Oil Project have commenced. Operations are now underway in order to prepare the well for commercial production. This includes the purchase of a pumping unit and tank battery which are currently undergoing installation at the well site. Based on an assessment of the well and analysis of the oil shows, the partners have concluded to commence the completion program by first addressing the lower of the two 40 foot pay zones. The oil shale will be perforated, acidized and subsequently put on pump. The completion efforts will culminate in swab and flow testing of the oil bearing shale formation to determine what the zone can and will deliver on a BPD (barrel per day) basis.

The Company is confident that based on strong oil shows and subject to fracture stimulation in the shale, the lower pay zone will produce at rates in excess of the No. 1 well which tested at 80 BPD under similar conditions. The upper pay zone directly above the shale at NOJ26 exhibited excellent oil shows and log responses and will be put into production following a period of evaluation in order to maximize the response from the shale..” American Petro-hunter Inc. is a goal-oriented exploration and production (E&P) Company aiming to become an intermediate level oil and gas producer within 12 months.

The Company is in production at the Poston Project in Trego County Kansas with new drilling activity and production underway at the North Oklahoma Oil Project. With the achievable target of becoming a 1000 BOE producer as our goal, American Petro-Hunter is actively on the “hunt” for domestic petroleum assets.
