Item 8.01.
Other Events.

On September 5, 2007, PetroHunter Energy Corporation and its subsidiary, Australia PetroHunter Ltd., announced the following operations update with respect to its four exploration licenses in the Beetaloo Basin (owned by its subsidiary, Sweetpea Petroleum Pty Ltd.) comprising 7,000,000 acres.

On July 31, 2007, Sweetpea Petroleum Pty Ltd. commenced drilling the Sweetpea Shenandoah #1 well in the central portion of the Beetaloo Basin, approximately 28 miles southeast of the town of Daly Waters in the Northern Territory of Australia.  The well is currently drilling at 4550 feet with a planned total depth of 9500 feet.

This well is a twin to the Balmain #1 well drilled in 1992.  The original plan to drill the Shenandoah #1 underbalanced with air was modified due to a shallow sand that produced water.  The well is now being drilled with air along with water and mud.  Oil and gas hydrocarbon shows in the Hayfield Formation and Kyalla Shale have been confirmed.  The mudlog exhibits gas shows and fluorescence starting at about 1900 feet, in the Hayfield Formation, and continuing through to present depth of 4550 feet.  So far, over 700 feet of hydrocarbon shows [C1-C4] have been encountered.  Geologically, the Shenandoah #1 has matched its prognosis and the drilling results correlate excellently with the Balmain #1 well.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
