Unitech Energy updates Keg River well completion



    CALGARY, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - Unitech Energy Resources Inc. ("Unitech") (TSXV:
URX) today announces that it has been advised by the operator of its Keg River
test well in Northeast British Columbia that the drilling operations
undertaken with a completion rig is believed to have penetrated the targeted
Keg River formation. During the drilling operations, the well produced gas at
a significantly lower rate than anticipated, along with large quantities of
water. At the present time it is not known whether the water and gas are
coming from the same down hole event and logs will now be run in an attempt to
make this determination. Further work on the well will be determined after the
logs have been run.
    Under the terms of the farm-in agreement, Unitech has now earned in 20
British Columbia land Units, the equivalent of 5 sections of land as well as
the right to participate in any earning wells on an additional 3 sections of
land.
