American Petro-Hunter Announces NOS227 Well Completion Underway at North Oklahoma Project


March 29, 2011 - SCOTTSDALE, AZ

American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH) ("American Petro-Hunter" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the NOS227 well completion is underway at the North Oklahoma Project. The work over rig has arrived on site and commenced activities in order to finish the well and put it into commercial production.

When completed, NOS227 will become the 3rd production well at the North Oklahoma Project in Payne County, Oklahoma. The well was drilled to 3,820 feet and the completion plan has begun to test and complete for immediate and future production of the three objective formations which include 85 feet in the Mississippi, 45 feet in the Woodford Shale, and 4 feet in the Simpson. It is anticipated that co-mingled Mississippi/Woodford production could result in 100 to 150 BPD potential.

Electronic log data of the oil bearing formations underlying NOS227 indicates that the lower Simpson formation provides oil shows offering excellent permeability and porosity and will be perforated and tested first. Following that, the Company plans to move up hole and acidize the Woodford which appears to have better porosity characteristics than what was encountered at the previously drilled No. 1 well where acidizing resulted in swab rates of 80 barrels per day. As part of the completion of this formation, a light fracture stimulation ("Frac") of the Woodford is anticipated. Lastly, the 85 foot thick Mississippi will be acidized and fracked.

All three zones contain oil shows having the requisite permeability and porosity to produce oil in commercial quantities and the well has been cased to depth. Based on an engineering analysis of the well and logs, the Company believes the possibility of a Mississippi-Woodford well with comingled production from both formations is estimated to have a 100-150 BPD potential. Additional production may occur from the Simpson however, as the zone is limited, it may prove prudent to hold the added resource behind pipe with the reserve categorized as Proved Undeveloped.

American Petro-Hunter has a 50% interest in the well. Production from NOS227 will be sold alongside output from the No. 1 and NOJ26 wells to Sunoco, the regional purchaser. West Texas Intermediate Crude today has recently been priced at $104 per barrel.
