Unicorp has commenced drilling on its North Laurel Ridge Prospect located in Iberville Parish, Louisiana. Unicorp has a 5% after casing point working interest and an approximate 4% net revenue interest in the well.

The North Laurel Ridge Prospect will be drilled to a depth of approximately 12,300 feet to test the Cibicides Hazzardi 1 thru 5 sands updip to the KCS Claiborne Plantation Well #1 which tested at 1,039 BOPD and 872 Mcfpd from the Cib.haz #4 sand. Total reserves are estimated to be 1,093,000 barrels of oil and 3.3 Bcf of gas.

"We are pleased that we are finally getting some of our prospects drilled during the second half of 2006," stated Arthur Ley, COO of Unicorp. "We believe that as we go into 2007 the rig market will loosen some which should allow us to be much more active in our drilling program."
