American Petro-Hunter announced the commencement of drilling operations at the #3 Lutters Well at the Poston Prospect, located in Trego County, Kansas. The well is scheduled to spud today and the Company expects drilling to take 7 days to reach the planned 4,500 foot target depth. The #3 well is a direct offset by 300 feet to the #1 Lutters well that has been in production since June 2009.

The #3 Lutters well is targeting the oil producing Mississippi Dolomite formation identified by a 3D seismic high which pinpoints the oil bearing horizon. The #3 Lutters offset well is part of an ongoing, multi-well drilling program designed to fully exploit the 750 acre location. Given that the #3 Lutters is located adjacent to an existing well and facilities, in the event commercial producer is completed, the Company expects a rapid tie-in to the site infrastructure and tank storage battery thereby allowing for oil sales to occur in an expedited manner.
