Pat O'Brien, CEO of American, commented, "We are pleased to report strong results from our Summerfield well, which is our third consecutive successfully operated Bakken well in North Dakota. With our two rig continuous drilling program underway and production from recently completed wells, we expect increasing oil and natural gas production volumes should favorably impact the Company's financial metrics during the current quarter."

Drilling operations continue with both of American's operated drilling rigs. Completion operations are expected to commence in late-June on the Bergstrom 15-23H well (95% WI) and in mid-July on the Johnson 15-35H well (82%WI). Both of these wells are planned for an approximate 9,600 foot lateral in the Bakken formation and fracture stimulation with a minimum of 30 stages.
