American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH) ("American Petro-Hunter" or the "Company") today wishes to announce that the drilling of the NOS2-22 oil and gas well in Payne County at the Company's North Oklahoma Project has commenced.

The well offsets the NOS1-22 well which is producing from the Skinner Sand and has been in production since July of 2011. The NOS2-22 is the second well drilled on the lease that is targeting the productive Skinner Sand with other objectives in the 3,500 foot well that include the Burgess Sand, Woodford Shale, Simpson Dolomite, and Wilcox formations. It is expected that drilling will take between 7 and 10 days. The NOS2-22 well will ultimately be subject to a frack after which, the Company is targeting production of 20 BPD net to the 50% WI (Working Interest).

An analog Skinner Sand field in the section due west of this drill site had several Skinner Sand wells with IPRs (Initial Production Rate) of 50-70 BOPD with the best well in that section having an IPR of 120 BOPD. The field has cumulatively produced 309,413 barrels of oil from the Skinner Sand over an 18 year life. Additional locations for drilling future development wells are present on our lease. The Company will report results when made available from the field.

In related news, the Company wishes to advise that it has moved to consolidate operations by relocating its corporate headquarters to Wichita, Kansas. The move is designed to improve access and efficiency through closer proximity to field operations in both Oklahoma and Kansas. The Company now operates from 250 N Rock Rd.
