UnionTown Energy Begins Work on Assessing Value for Large Production-Ready Natural Gas Reserves on Its Property

Henry Hub Spot Price of Natural Gas Expected to Rise in Coming Months as Demand Increases Possibly Making Company Asset Values Grow

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 16, 2010) - UnionTown Energy Inc. (OTCBB: INBH), an Independent Oil & Gas Company, today announced that it has begun assessing the potential Natural Gas Reserves on its UnionTown Property as demand for natural gas increases and prices are expected to rise.

UnionTown recently signed a purchase agreement for a coal-seam, natural gas property located in Kansas. The property is located in the vast Cherokee basin, which straddles Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and Oklahoma and has been producing gas from shale and coal deposits for over eighty years and has 2.8 Tcf of potential recoverable CBM.

The potential coalbed methane resource for this area is generally defined by the presence of four or more seams in the Cherokee Group. While it has yet to be determined how many of these coal seams in an individual well can be completed and produced, individual well reserve estimates have varied from as little as .1 BCF per 160 acres to over .5 BCF per 80 acres. 

Reported gas content in the coals in the Cherokee Basin varies from 5 to 450 scf per ton. Gas quality varies from 96% to 98% methane, 1% to 3%+ ethane +, 0.5%+ CO2 to 92% methane, a few percent nitrogen, and CO2 with BTU contents varying from 850 to 1050.

A Company spokesperson noted, "We believe that our property has excellent potential and will continue to carry out due diligence and research on the potential reserves. Natural Gas is in demand with the projected Henry Hub annual average spot price increasing from $3.95 per million Btu (MMBtu) in 2009 to $4.47 in 2010 and $4.58 in 2011."
