American Petro-Hunter Announces Spud of #24-1 Double H Oil Well at Rooney Prospect, Kansas

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH) ("American Petro-Hunter" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the spud of the #24-1 Double H Oil Well on the Rooney Prospect, Ford County, Kansas. A short delay in rig arrival due to inclement weather resulting in poor road conditions prevented the equipment from accessing the fully prepared drill site location. Drilling at the Rooney project is now moving ahead and is anticipated to take 7 days to reach total depth (T.D.) after which any prospective oil shows will be tested.

The 5,400 foot #24-1 Double H well is targeting the productive Morrow Sand and the Company and partners believe the lease is highly prospective for potential Morrow oil production. Rooney is located in southwestern Ford County, Kansas 20 miles due south of Dodge City and totals 5,120 acres adjacent to the north edge of existing Morrow Sand oil and gas production. An analog well to the south in the Morrow pool has cumulatively produced 344,448 Barrels of oil and 933,622 MCF gas. There are multiple wells within 2 miles of our acreage that have produced in the 35,000 to 40,000 barrel range from sand channels.

Based on a previously conducted 3D seismic shoot, the Company and partners have developed a minimum of 5 target locations which, based on the success of the #24-1 Double H well, aim to drill these additional targets on a monthly basis. This multi well program could enable the Company to add 5 additional wells to its portfolio by the end of the third quarter of 2010. The operator of the project is S&W Oil & Gas, LLC of Wichita, Kansas.
