Africa Hydrocarbons prepares for test of BHN-1 well in Tunisia
Thursday, Jul 25, 2013

Africa Hydrocarbons Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NFK) ("AHI" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that production tubing is being installed at the Company's BHN-1 well on the Bouhajla Permit in northeastern Tunisia. Following the evaluation of cased-hole logs the decision was made to configure the wellbore for testing purposes. Several interpreted fracture intervals are observed within a 245m thick Abiod section. Elevated C1-C4 gas chromatograph readings along with evidence of micro-fractures observed in drill cuttings coincide with the potential fracture intervals.

The operator of the well plans to release the drilling rig once the tubing has been set and return with wireline perforating guns and a coiled tubing unit to perforate and acidize the selected test intervals as soon as possible.

The BHN-1 well was spud on June 8, 2013 and is the first exploration well on the Bouhajla Permit. It is being drilled to evaluate a Cretaceous Abiod oil target on the Bouhajla North prospect.
