SCOTTSDALE, AZ–(Marketwire – May 4, 2011) – American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH) (“American Petro-Hunter” or the “Company”) announced today the commencement of a “multi-stage surge frack” regarded as the final event in the completion process at the NOS227 well prior to the onset of commercial oil production.
The fracture stimulation (“frack”) program is a newly designed approach intended to break apart the reservoir allowing for a significant increase in the flow of oil. The process has proven to be highly effective in dramatically increasing production from the Mississippi formation elsewhere in the area. Currently, all requisite equipment has arrived onsite and efforts have commenced.
As previously reported, analogous vertical wells located nearby and to the north of NOS227 and having undergone an identical stimulation program have paid out in less than 90 days. The new completion technologies offer the potential to deliver vastly higher production through the use of the latest enhanced reservoir stimulation technologies. The “multi-stage surge frack” is a proven advanced technology that has delivered excellent results regionally and was chosen as the approach presenting the best potential yield results given the geology of the location. The frack of the well will stimulate 85 feet of the pay in the Mississippi Formation and American Petro-Hunter has targeted an initial production rate (I.P.R.) post-frack of 300 BPOD.
Penny Stocks are stocks traded for under $2 and they represent the small cap companies. They trade on the OTCBB so you will not find them on the major stock exchanges. They are very cheap stocks and normally come for businesses needing capital. They are a very risky investment as the business can go under and leave you with a stock worth nothing. However that being said penny stock trading can be a great money maker, and there are numerous traders who make 6 figures and more from them each year.
The best reasons to trade in penny stocks are the fact that they do not require a large initial investment, meaning that they are an affordable investment for many. Penny stocks are cheap. For example if you were to buy 1000 shares in a company with shares at 10 cents, you would only require an investment of $100, whereas if the shares cost $5 you would require an investment of $5000. Penny stocks also have the potential of huge gains, and have been known to rise as much as 1000% daily. Therefore your $100 investment can be worth $1000. This is very unlikely to happen to other stocks from large cap businesses.
