Energy News:

UnionTown Energy (UTOG) shares rose more than 3% in morning trading. The company has been in the news for recent property acquisitions in the Montana shale fields.

On Friday, UnionTown announced the completion of its previously reported acquisition of the New Miami oil and gas property in northwest Montana. Two days, earlier, the company closed its acquisition of the Musselshell property in central Montana.

Oil and gas companies are moving quickly to acquire and explore shale oil and gas properties across the United States.

Both New Miami and Musselshell were previously explored using vertical well holes and are believed to be good candidates for further exploration using new horizontal drilling technology combined with hydraulic fracturing.

The estimated recoverable oil reserve in the two properties is 12.8 million barrels.

UnionTown says the acquisitions have substantially increased the company's value and given it leverage to pursue future acquisitions.
