American Petro-Hunter (OTCBB: AAPH) Updates Horizontal Drilling Progress at North Oklahoma Project
SCOTTSDALE , AZ - May 25, 2011 (Investorideas.com energy newswire) - American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTC.BB:AAPH) ("American Petro-Hunter" or the "Company") today wishes to update the drilling progress of the NOM1H Horizontal well at the Company's North Oklahoma Project. Full news:http://www.investorideas.com/CO/AAPH/news/2011/05251.asp
In a previously published Investorideas.com interview, Robert McIntosh, President & C.E.O. of American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTC.BB: AAPH) notes, "Shale plays for oil and gas are the new technology of the industry. Advancements in direction drilling and secondary recovery allow us to drill along these shales-they have oil it’s been found and is more of an engineering issue to extract it, like oil sands. So we will have known predictable oil and not have to "wildcat" hoping to discover oil. The Bakken is 200 feet thick and is worth billions to the companies involved. Our Oklahoma shale is new and we are on the cutting edge of drilling leasing and production. And the majors are there-Devon (NYSE: DVN ), Chesapeake, (NYSE: CHK ), Newfield (NYSE: NFX ) and others now producing gas from the Woodford shale in the south of the State.”
