Unitech studies Bakken, Frobisher, and Midale formations in southeast Saskatchewan and announces first royalty well

    CALGARY, March 26 /CNW/ - Unitech Energy Resources Inc. ("Unitech")
(TSXV: URX) is pleased to announce that it has been notified by the private
operator of Unitech's southeast Saskatchewan override lands (the "Lands"),
that the first well subject to Unitech's gross overriding royalty interest (as
previously announced on January 3, 2008), has been farmed out to a third party
and is expected to spud soon after spring breakup. The Midale formation is
targeted. The Lands consist of approximately 6,000 acres within Townships 1
and 8, Ranges 1 to 11, W2M in south-east Saskatchewan (the "Area"). Over 50%
of these Lands are in the Tableland area and within the Bakken play trend.
    As previously announced on January 3, 2008, Unitech used its proprietary
image analysis and pattern recognition system, called Leadscan, to generate a
regional geological study covering the Area. The study targeted the Bakken,
Frobisher and Midale formations. The consideration payable to Unitech was
satisfied by a cash payment of $95,000 and the granting by the private
operator to Unitech of a gross overriding royalty ("GORR") and a working
interest participation option ("WIPO") on the Lands.
    The agreements entered into with the private operator provide for the
payment to Unitech of a 3% GORR on new production on the Lands in the Area.
The terms of the WIPO are such that Unitech may elect to participate in a well
to earn 9% of the operator's working interest on any wells drilled on lands in
the Area currently held by the operator by paying 15% of the operator's share
of the costs to drill any such wells. Unitech has elected to participate in
this Midale well via the GORR rather than pay for an additional working
