Report excerpts:

We are initiating a BUY rating for American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH), an emerging junior oil exploration and production (E&P) company that is actively seeking to capitalize on burgeoning demand and high oil prices by strategically acquiring and consolidating the operations of various properties (where possible), based on estimated reserves, ease of extraction and location.”

Solid Project Portfolio: The Company’s primary producing properties will be on the Mississippi Formation in North Oklahoma and Kansas, and are classic over-producers. The Mississippi’s geology is well understood as a result of the thousands of vertical wells drilled and produced there since the 1940s. The recent applications of horizontal drilling and multistage hydraulic fracturing, both utilized by AAPH, have demonstrated the potential for extracting significant additional quantities of oil and natural gas from the formation.

Business/Product Overview: About American Petro-Hunter Inc.
American Petro-Hunter, Inc. is an emerging, expertly managed oil exploration and production (E&P) company. AAPHs business strategy is based on acquiring and developing high quality projects with existing and expansion potential (mostly through horizontal drilling). The Company has a diversified portfolio of assets with four wells in production and one slated to produce any day. American Petro is currently operating three projects: Ripley in Oklahoma (one well soon), Poston in Trego County, Kansas (2 wells) and Yale in Oklahoma (4 wells). Ripley and Yale are collectively referred to as North Oklahoma. Poston is currently producing, as are two wells at Yale. By relying on experience, science and proven growth strategies in order to continuously balance a risk/reward portfolio, American Petro is focused on its existing leased properties to begin full production, while continually maintaining an eye to expand its acreage/leases at its North Oklahoma Project.

Company Strategy Brief
  • Acquire Capacity. The Company has stated that it intends to become a 500-1000 BOE producer in the next 12-36 months by aggressively developing its Poston and North Oklahoma. Through the second half of this year, we have predicted 323 barrels a day, so this goal certainly seems realistic.
  • Utilize Strategic Relationships. The Company continually strives to expand its network in North Oklahoma. Combined with successful efforts accounting, American Petro has been able to secure leases and develop properties with friendly strategic partners and run very lean from an outgoing cashflow perspective.
  • Increase Efficiencies (Geographic Concentration). Because of fragmentation, huge demand, and the surge in exploration activities due to skyrocketing oil prices, the U.S. oil industry (particularly the independent, junior players) is marked by inefficiencies. This is why we like the fact that American Petro has geographically concentrated its operations, which better suits a fledgling E&P company in our opinion. Furthermore, we like to see the “P” of “E&P” (production) being the primary focus. Securing leases in this environment has been a nice coup, so now is the time to focus on developing the wells and generating revenue in a region that has certainly shown itself to be a top producer and has the interest of big players.
