UnionTown Energy Inc. (UTOG) Reports Promising Initial Oil Cut Results From New Miami #42-20H Well

BILLINGS, MT--(Marketwire - Aug 3, 2011) - UnionTown Energy Inc. (OTCBB: UTOG) (PINKSHEETS: UTOG) is pleased to report promising initial oil cut results from its New Miami #42-20H well completion program.

During the ongoing swabbing procedures, the well operator has reported oil cuts starting at 2.5% on July 23, 2011, steadily increasing to an average up to 10% based on an average swabbing rate of 38 barrels per hour on July 28, 2011.

One of UnionTown's contracted geologists visited nearby producing wells to compare the New Miami #42-20H well's water resistivity data with theirs. He determined that the fluids being extracted from the New Miami #42-20H well are still mostly drilling fluids. It is his interpretation that water from the oil formation has not yet appeared in the swabs and that it will probably be a few more days before fluids produced from the actual oil-producing pay zones begins to appear.

The Company is encouraged by these findings and considers the steady increase in the oil cut rates to be a promising sign. It also considers it to be a positive development that the well has produced a 10% oil cut rate even before fluids from the oil formation's pay zones have been encountered.

Once the swabbing procedures are completed, production flow rates will be determined and UnionTown will decide whether an acid treatment is required to further increase the production flow rate. The Company will then determine the size of the pumps needed to accommodate the production rate.
