American Petro-hunter Inc (OTCBB: AAPH)
Oil and Gas Stocks Research; Central Valley Has Largest California Oil Find in 35 Years
CFA Commentary on (OTC.BB: AAPH), (NYSE:OXY), (NYSE:BRY), (NASDAQ:BEXP),
(NASDAQ:BBEP)
“American Petro-Hunter's Sacramento Gas Project is estimated to contain 42 billion cubic feet

of potential recoverable reserves. The gas is found at depths of 7,400 feet in a 50 foot sand
pay zone. Third party engineers think a commercial well on the site could easily achieve initial
production of 5,000 Mcf of gas per day. Output from nearby analog gas fields supports the
expectation of high production rates. These fields currently produce between 2,000 and 4,000
Mcf of gas per day. The close proximity of American Petro-Hunter's prospect to the Union Island,
McMullin Ranch and Vernalis fields also suggest the presence of sizable gas reserves. These
fields are estimated to contain in aggregate over 437 billion cubic feet of natural gas.

American Petro-Hunter (OTC.BB: AAPH) and its partner completed seismic testing at the
Sacramento Gas Project last year and are combining this data with seismic reports purchased
from other engineering firms. The seismic data will be used to identify promising drill targets.
American Petro-Hunter expects to complete drill site selection early next year. Once the drill
site is chosen, preparations for drilling will begin almost immediately. The company plans to
drill a test well to 7,800 feet, which will hopefully confirm the presence of trapped gas already
indicated by the 2D seismic data. Drilling of the test well will likely begin in the summer of 2011.
American Petro-Hunter must wait until the dry summer months to drill because the site is close
to sea level. A total of three wells are planned as part of the drilling program. Assuming gas is
found in commercial quantities, American Petro-Hunter plans to sell its production to groups such
as PG&E Citygate, which supplies natural gas for electric power generation in the Sacramento
region. The company will benefit from California gas prices, which are among the highest in the
country. Current gas prices for PGE-Citygate are around $4.50 per Mcf. “
