UNION DRILLING REPORTS

2011 SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

Expands Credit Facility to $150 Million

FORT WORTH, Texas, August 3, 2011 – Union Drilling, Inc. (NASDAQ: UDRL) announced today financial and operating results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011.

Revenues for the second quarter of 2011 were $59.9 million compared to $43.7 million in the second quarter of 2010. The Company reported a net loss of $3.4 million for the quarter, or $0.15 per share, compared to a net loss of $5.3 million, or $0.23 per share, during the second quarter of 2010.

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2011 totaled $9.1 million compared to $3.6 million reported in the same period last year. For additional information regarding EBITDA as a non-GAAP financial measure, please refer to the disclosures contained at the end of this release.

Christopher D. Strong, Union Drilling’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Top line growth has driven our earnings improvement both sequentially and over the prior year. Although margins expanded, utilization was lower than expected due to seasonal weather factors that persisted through much of May in Appalachia. Further, average operating cost per day was negatively affected by higher than anticipated repair and maintenance expense, primarily in Texas. Lowering our average operating expense per day is a top priority, provided we do so without sacrificing safety or drilling efficiency.

“Looking ahead, the third quarter is typically our strongest of the year and the overall outlook for the business is very positive. As previously disclosed, we have four new rigs backed by term contracts in the construction queue, with the first expected to be delivered late in the third quarter. With our expanded credit facility and anticipated cash flow from operations, we will continue to seek opportunities to acquire new rigs backed by term contracts.”
