    CALGARY, Dec. 18 /CNW/ - Unitech Energy Resources Inc. ("Unitech") (TSXV:
URX) is pleased to announce that it has completed the first tranche of its
previously announced non-brokered private placement of special warrants issued
on a flow-through basis ("Special Warrants"). Unitech issued an aggregate of
5,320,442 Special Warrants at a price of $0.09 per Special Warrant for gross
proceeds of $478,839.78. The Special Warrants are convertible into a variable
number of Unitech common shares dependent on a reserves and valuation prepared

at its Keg River prospect in NE British Columbia. The Special Warrants, and
the Unitech common shares issuable upon conversion, will be subject to a
four-month hold period, commencing on the date the Special Warrants are
issued.
    Unitech expects to complete a second tranche of the private placement on
or prior to December 31, 2007. Unitech will use the aggregate proceeds of the
private placement to fund the drillout and completion of the Well and earn an
additional working interest.
