Unitech Energy announces commencement of the completion of its NE British Columbia Keg River test well

    CALGARY, Dec. 14 /CNW/ - Unitech Energy Resources Inc. ("Unitech") (TSXV:
URX) is pleased to announce that the operator of its Keg River prospect in NE
British Columbia has notified Unitech that completion of the test well (the
"Well") has commenced. The operator has stated that the intention is to
proceed to completion as quickly as possible and that the completion may occur
prior to December 31, 2007, depending on availability of equipment. The Well
was drilled and cased in the spring of 2007 to within approximately 50 metres
of the target Keg River formation.
    Unitech has the right to earn up to an additional approximate 23% working
interest in the prospect, which if fully exercised and combined with Unitech's
current working interest, could achieve a combined working interest of
approximately 31% in this high impact prospect.
    3-D seismic interpretation indicates a structure believed to be similar
to the nearby YoYo and Sierra fields, which have produced more that 2 TCF
combined, and where numerous single wells have produced in excess of 40 BCF.
