UnionTown Energy Inc. (UTOG) Provides Update on Recently Drilled Well on New Miami Property

The New Miami #42-20H Has Been Set With 7-Inch Casing and Is Scheduled for Swabbing and Flow Testing

BILLINGS, MT--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - UnionTown Energy Inc. (OTCBB: UTOG) (PINKSHEETS: UTOG) is pleased to report that it is completing the New Miami #42-20H well, the first of 17 wells planned for the New Miami property. Intermediate 7-inch casing was set on around the curve to 3,256' measured depth. Slotted 4.5" production casing was run to a total measured depth of 5,300'. The well is now awaiting a service rig and swabbing and production flow testing will commence the week of July 18, 2011.

After testing is completed, UnionTown will decide whether an acid treatment is required to increase the production flow rates. Additionally, the company will determine the size of the pumps needed to accommodate the production rate.

Drilled between June 7 and June 19, 2011, the New Miami #42-20H well was designed to horizontally penetrate and expose approximately 2,000 feet of the Sun River Dolomite pay zone (the upper three to five feet of the Madison Formation). During the horizontal drilling process, two secondary Madison Formation pay zones were encountered.

The drill crew drilled roughly along dip for about 400 horizontal feet of pay in one of the secondary zones and 94 horizontal feet of pay in the other. The 400-foot secondary zone produced two additional secondary Madison Formation pay zones and encountered tar balls from its base (25 feet below the primary target) and dark brown free oil from the remainder of its zone (to 15 feet below the primary target).

Starting at a depth of 4,400 feet, which represents the top of the primary pay zone, and extending down to a depth of 5,275 feet, the drill crew encountered nearly continuous -- and at times heavy -- oil flows over the shaker.

"We are very encouraged with the results to date of the New Miami #42-20H well at our New Miami property," said UnionTown's President and CEO Darren Stevenson. "The geological summary suggests encouraging production potential from this well."

The New Miami property comprises more than 1,480 acres in the Sweetgrass Arch area of northwest Montana.

As previously reported on April 11, 2011, the New Miami #42-20H is one of two initial wells the company plans to drill on the property, out of the total of 17 potential wells. The company considers these two wells will be lower in exploration risk as they are offset from two previous vertical wells, which have determined the presence of a shallow oil accumulation in the area.
