Unitech Energy and Avenger Petroleum Join Forces in Northeast BC

    CALGARY, April 4 /CNW/ - Unitech Energy Resources Inc. ("Unitech") (TSXV:
URX) today announced that it has entered into a farm-in agreement with Avenger
Petroleum Inc. whereby Unitech will participate in the drilling of a well in
northeast British Columbia at c-B67-K/94-I-14. The target is the Keg River
formation in the Kotcho field, where seismic analysis covering the prospect
indicates a possible Pine Point (Keg River) lower level reef build up
equivalent in age to the nearby Yoyo and Sierra reefs (which have produced
greater than 1 TCF each). Wells drilled in the giant Yoyo (8 km south) and
Sierra (21 km south) gas fields have produced between 40 to 60 BCF per well
from fully developed reefs of the Devonian Pine Point formation. It should be
noted that Unitech's prospect is interpreted to be a lower reef build up as
opposed to the large pools mentioned above, with anticipated recoveries more
similar to the smaller pools found in the Yoyo and Sierra gas fields.
    Steve Price, President of Unitech Energy Resources Inc., commented, "We
have high expectations for success here which would propel Unitech to the next
    Unitech has agreed to incur up to $482,580 in capital expenditures for a
15% working interest, with a number of additional well locations pending a
successful outcome of the earning well. The working interest would decrease in
the event that costs are greater than initially expected. The expenditures
related to this well will satisfy all of Unitech's flow-through obligations
for its flow-through funds raised in 2006. The well is currently being drilled
and Keg River contact is expected by April 30, 2007. Subject to the ongoing
terms of the farm-in agreement, rights to additional lands along the same
trend have also been acquired.
