VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 3, 2015) - Archer Petroleum Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ARK)(DBFrankfurt:A6VA) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a participation agreement to participate in the drilling of the Clayton No. 1H, a horizontal well. This well will target the Gardiner lime in Runnels County, Texas.

It is anticipated that drilling of the Clayton No. 1H will commence March 2015. The permit for the well will allow the well to be drilled to a depth of approximately 4,100 feet with a horizontal leg of up to 3,500 feet.
