UnionTown Energy Inc. (UTOG) Plans to Drill 2 Additional Wells on Teton River to Further Prove Up and Potentially Extend Estimated Reserve

BILLINGS, MT--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2011) - UnionTown Energy Inc. (OTCBB: UTOG) (PINKSHEETS: UTOG) is pleased to announce it intends to drill 2 additional exploration wells on its Teton River property to further prove up, and potentially extend, the estimated ultimate recoverable (EUR) oil reserve model.

This decision follows the analysis of drill results from the first two wells UnionTown drilled on Teton River earlier this summer, Teton River #1A-10 and Teton River #2A-10, as well as a third well, Teton River #3-10, that previously existed on the property and was at one time a producing well.

Both of UnionTown's recently drilled wells displayed very good heavy oil shows in several different sections. However, the Operator's geologists believe that additional exploration could extend the estimated reservoir model determined by the prior drilling and provide a better understanding of the potential production locations and the size of the pay zones.

Initially, the operational team, working with the site geologists, had planned to advance directly towards implementation of a 5-spot pilot production model. But based on the drill results analysis, they now believe it would be more prudent to further prove up and define the reservoir. The two new exploration wells will be located straight east from the previously producing Teton River #3-10.

UnionTown is currently having its Teton River reserve model reviewed and expects to be able to report the EUR in the near future.

"After the positive heavy oil shows from our first Teton River well (Teton River # 1-10), the technical team added a coring program in the second well (Teton #2-10) to gather more information about the reservoir," said UnionTown's President and CEO Darren Stevenson. "The team's examination of the core chips contributed to our decision to modify our strategy and thus plan the drilling of 2 additional exploration wells deeper into the sand with the goal of determining the location of larger pay zones that will hopefully result in producing oil wells with greater yields."

After the 2 new exploration wells are completed and the reservoir outline has been better defined, UnionTown intends to redesign its 5-spot production location. Additionally, a steam generator is being obtained to support the commencement of oil flow testing on the newly drilled wells, starting with the Teton #1a-10.
