Energy News: Telkonet (OTCBB: TKOI), Selected to Install Energy Management Platform at Prestigious Military Academy

September 26, 2011 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - Telkonet, Inc. (OTCBB: TKOI.OB), developer of the EcoSmart energy management platform, announced today that a prestigious United States military academy is the latest military institution to deploy its innovative network-enabled energy-saving technology.
As a technology provider for one of the nation's premier energy service companies, Telkonet was awarded a contract for $226,000 to provide the SmartEnergy platform in academy residence halls.
Jason Tienor, Telkonet CEO, said, "We're excited to continue demonstrating the substantial energy savings that Telkonet's SmartEnergy Suite can provide in residence hall applications. This particular deployment displays the flexibility of our field services division as well as the design flexibility of our technology. We're honored to have been selected for this project and look forward to working with the academy."
Telkonet will install a network-enabled SmartEnergy energy management system, including intelligent networked thermostats, occupancy sensors, and door contacts. An integral component of the solution is the online management platform, which will allow the military academy to monitor and control each in-room HVAC system remotely. The SmartEnergy system, which employs Telkonet's patented Recovery TimeTM technology, will optimize energy savings in unoccupied rooms while also ensuring that the thousands of cadets attending the academy stay comfortable when occupying their rooms.
To date, academy administrators have been unable to avoid excessive heating and cooling of unoccupied residence halls. The SmartEnergy system will improve local control and give the property management team the capability to monitor the health and efficiency of the HVAC systems themselves while minimizing energy consumption.
For almost two decades, the energy service company responsible for enabling energy efficiency upgrades at the military academy has collaborated with customers to deliver energy savings through comprehensive and cost-effective efficiency and infrastructure services. Telkonet has had the privilege of serving this ESCO on several other military installations and is participating in project development on several additional opportunities.
"We're pleased to have been selected to perform this upgrade as part of our strategic partnership. We're also confident the cadets will appreciate the comfort improvements and the Academy will find enormous value in the reduced energy and maintenance cost," Tienor said.
Both the energy service company and the military academy have built their foundations on the principles of excellence and integrity, and Telkonet is proud to have been chosen as a vendor partner for this efficiency improvement project.

Oil and Gas Stocks News; American Petro-Hunter (OTCBB: AAPH) Spuds Second Horizontal Well at North Oklahoma Project

(OTC.BB:AAPH) ("American Petro-Hunter" or the "Company") today is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling at the NOW-2H horizontal oil well at the Company's North Oklahoma Mississippi Project.

Company President Robert McIntosh states, "The NOW2-H well is the second of 11 wells to be drilled in the flourishing North Oklahoma Mississippi Lime Play which is rapidly becoming one of the premier oilfields in the country. With literally 100s of horizontal wells drilled and already producing, reservoir development in this region of the mid-continent is moving forward and creating news virtually every day." Mr. McIntosh continues, "American Petro-Hunter enjoys an enviable position with access to some of the best leases in the entire play and the Company is committed to an aggressive drilling schedule with plans to start a new well every 60 days so that we can maximize net production as quickly as possible."

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
This news release contains forward-looking statements relating to the Company's plans and other aspects of the Company's anticipated future operations, management focus, strategies, financial and operating results and business opportunities. Forward-looking statements typically use words such as "anticipate", "believe", "project", "expect", "goal", "plan", "intend" or similar words suggesting future outcomes, statements that actions, events or conditions "may", "would", "could" or "will" be taken or occur in the future.

Red Fork Energy Limited (ASX: RFE) News; Progress Report Tahara #1-28H Well Pawnee County, Oklahoma

September 15, 2011 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Oklahoma based (Australian Securities Exchange listed) oil and gas exploration and production company, Red Fork Energy Limited (ASX: RFE) ("Red Fork" or the "Company") advises that as of 7.00am Central Time on September 12, 2011 the Tahara #1-28H successfully reached its target depth of 8,139 feet.
Approximately 4,200 feet of lateral was successfully drilled in the Mississippi formation, with mud logs and samples confirming several good shows of oil and gas throughout the length of the lateral. Shows of oil were observed in cuttings across some broad zones within the lateral, with numerous gas readings above background also recorded, again over broad zones within the lateral section.
Entry of the lateral in the Mississippi section was determined by open hole log evaluation of wells that penetrated the Mississippi in the immediate area. Production history from vertical Mississippi wells indicates that both the Mississippi Solid and the Mississippi Chat are productive. Based on log evaluation and available production data, the lateral was positioned approximately in the middle of the section. Sample examination indicates that the lateral encountered interbedded limestone and chert beds.
Importantly the Company was able to successfully drill the full designed lateral length without any operational or technical difficulties.
The lateral section of the well will now be prepared for open hole logging activities (full suite of Schlumberger logs). Immediately following this, operations to hang and cement the production liner will commence.
Finally the well will be shut-in awaiting completion operations, which will include perforation of the casing and a multi-stage fracture stimulation program.
Commenting on this release, Red Fork Managing Director, David Prentice, said, "We are very pleased that our operations team and preferred contractors have been able to deliver our first long Mississippian lateral without encountering any operational or technical difficulties. We are also excited that the well bore has encountered oil and gas in broad zones within the Mississippi formation in several zones across the length of the lateral and we look forward to providing further updates as completion operations get underway".
Yours faithfully
David Prentice

Energy Stock News; Osage Exploration and Development (OTCBB: OEDV), along with Its Partners Slawson and U.S. Energy Development Corporation, Increase Net Acreage to 15,000 in Nemaha Ridge Horizontal Mississippi Project

SAN DIEGO, CA - September 14, 2011 (Investorideas.com energy stocks newswire) - Osage Exploration and Development, Inc. (OTCBB: OEDV), along with its partners Slawson Exploration Company and U.S. Energy Development Corporation, is pleased to announce that we have been able to continue to increase our net land position to 15,000 acres in the highly prospective area east of the Nemaha Ridge in the Oklahoma horizontal Mississippian play.
Slawson Exploration Company is the Operator of the project and owns 45%, U.S. Energy Development Corporation owns 30%, and Osage Exploration has 25%.
"Slawson Exploration as Operator is focused on drilling the project in the fourth quarter this year, yet is bringing a tremendous amount of leadership to the land acquisition process as well. The synergy that has been created by the contribution of U.S. Energy on the land side, coupled with Slawson's and our own efforts, has increased the overall acquisition efficiency dramatically from my perspective," stated Kim Bradford, Chairman and CEO.
"Our approach has been and continues to be acquiring land that we feel is highly prospective, given the substantial amount of well control that we have. At no time have we acquired acreage that we feel might be marginally productive, instead we have leased in high-graded, geologically significant areas east of the Nemaha Ridge. Slawson is moving forward with a timetable of drilling our first wells later this year, because our stated goal is to drill every one of our leasehold acres," stated Greg Franklin, VP Exploration and Director.

Oil and Gas Stocks News; American Petro-Hunter's (OTCBB: AAPH) 2nd Horizontal Well at North Oklahoma Project Ready for Drilling

SCOTTSDALE, AZ � September 8, 2011 (Investorideas.com energy newswire) - American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTC.BB:AAPH) ("American Petro-Hunter" or the "Company") today provides an update regarding ongoing operations at the NOW-2H horizontal oil well site at the Company's North Oklahoma Project. All field preparations have been completed and readied for the arrival of the drilling rig. The Company has been informed that we are next in line for the rig, which is anticipated to arrive on site shortly.
The NOW-2H horizontal well is a direct 160 acre offset to, and � mile from, the NOM-1H well which began full commercial oil and gas production on July 6th. Once drilling commences and the Mississippi formation reservoir is reached vertically, the subsequent directional drilling will involve a 1,600 foot lateral leg drilled directly along the over-100-foot-thick pay zone. Drilling should take between 15-18 days to reach T.D., after which the Company confidently anticipates a rapid program to complete the well. The current objective is to have the NOW-2H pumping to the existing tank battery and gas pipeline by the end of October.
As previously reported, the Company has purchased full working interest participation in up to 11 additional horizontal wells within the play with the NOW-2H becoming the 2nd well implemented under the planned 11 well development program. The program is designed to accommodate the drilling of approximately one horizontal Mississippi formation well every 30 to 60 days.
Company President Robert McIntosh states, "The fall development drill program at the North Oklahoma Mississippi Project is now in full swing with the start of the drilling of the NOW2-H well. We have an aggressive drilling timetable ahead of us in order to fully develop these leases and to ensure we maximize the reservoir potential. After this next well is drilled, the engineers will evaluate the flow rates and oil cut to determine whether a slight stimulation or frack will be required to fully exploit the asset."
About American Petro-Hunter, Inc. (OTCBB: AAPH)
The Company is a goal-oriented exploration and production (E&P) Company aiming to become an intermediate level oil and gas producer within 12 months. The Company is in production at the Poston Project in Trego County Kansas with new drilling activity and production underway at the North Oklahoma Oil Project. With the achievable target of becoming a 1000 BOE producer as our goal, American Petro-Hunter is actively on the "hunt" for domestic petroleum assets. Visit us at: www.americanpetrohunter.com
