Unitech Energy announces operations update

    CALGARY, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - Unitech Energy Resources Inc. ("Unitech") (TSXV:
URX) is pleased to provide an update on its operations.

    1.  Stettler Basal Quartz well - Unitech has been notified by the
        operator that a pressure gradient has been run on the well,
        indicating 8300 kPa bottom-hole pressure. This pressure is typical of
        virgin Basal Quartz reservoirs in the area, and therefore may
        indicate the discovery of a new pool. A small stimulation is being
        planned to increase the productivity of the well which is expected to
        be on-stream in the near future. Unitech has earned a 25% working
        interest in the well and associated lands;

    2.  New Farm-in Announced in Central Alberta - in return for paying 35%
        of the costs associated with re-connecting the suspended gas well at
        10-29-030-03W5, the Company will earn a 35% working interest in the
        well, subject to a 12.5% lessor's royalty. The Company's portion of
        the costs is expected to be less than $100,000. This well was
        originally drilled in 1965 and has produced approximately 14.5 BCF
        from the Basal Quartz formation. The well was shut-in in September,
        2004, with a last production rate of 545mcf/day. Included in the
        agreement are rights from the lower Cardium formation to the base of
        the Manville formation. The Company expects to begin the reconnection
        work in the near future;

    3.  Medicine Hat farm-out - the Company has been notified by a major oil
        and gas company that it has elected to drill a follow-up well on
        lands acquired by the Company in a transaction announced on June 24,
        2008. The Company will receive a 2.25% gross overriding royalty on
        any production from the new well;

    4.  SE Saskatchewan lands - the Company has been notified by the Operator
        that it intends to drill up to 4 wells prior to December 31, 2008.
        Through the Leadscan study provided to the Operator at the end of
        2007, the Company had acquired a participation right of up to 15% and
        a 3% gross overriding royalty on the lands where the planned wells
        are to be drilled. If the Company elects to exercise its
        participation right, drilling funds would be provided from the recent
        offering which closed July 29, 2008. Regardless of the Company's
        level of participation, all production from these wells would be
        subject to a 3% gross overriding royalty payable to the Company.
