Unitech Energy Engages CHF Investor Relations

    CALGARY, April 9 /CNW/ - Unitech Energy Resources Inc. ("Unitech") (TSXV:
URX) today announced that it has retained CHF Investor Relations (Cavalcanti
Hume Funfer Inc.) of Toronto and Calgary, one of Canada's prominent IR firms
to the resource sector, as Unitech's investor relations counsel.
    CHF will provide investor relations and market-making activities for an
initial period of twelve months ending March 31, 2008. Thereafter,
cancellation by either party requires three months' written notice. CHF will
be paid a monthly fee of $7,500 plus allowable disbursements. Additionally,
subject to Board and regulatory approvals, CHF will be granted incentive stock
options to acquire 300,000 common shares of Unitech at a price of $0.40 per
share, all in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. A
non-insider shareholder has provided 200,000 Unitech common shares to CHF in
order to assist in market-making activities.
    Mr. Steve Price, President, commented, "We have teamed up with CHF
Investor Relations to support Unitech Energy's ambitious plans for this year
to build shareholder awareness of our unique competitive advantage in oil and
gas exploration. Unitech owns a proprietary digital well log database and
analysis system that contains more than 360,000 wells within the Western
Canadian Sedimentary Basin. This unique pattern recognition system is capable
of performing regional scans (thousands of square miles, and 10's of
thousand's of wells, per search) in a fraction of the time it would take to do
manually. Using Leadscan, we are able to quickly locate leads to potential
hydrocarbon prospects without the time and monetary costs normally associated
with such large scale ability. Using this information, Unitech plans to pursue
opportunities to grow its assets and revenues."
