True Energy Trust Provides Disposition Update

View All News Releases April 30, 2008


    CALGARY, April 30 /CNW/ - Further to the press release dated
April 17, 2008 True Energy Trust ("True") announces that it has completed the
previously announced sale of its Dodsland-Stranraer property in Saskatchewan.
Effective March 1, 2008, proceeds of approximately $40 million, prior to
closing adjustments, will be utilized to reduce True's bank indebtedness.
    Additionally, True announces its decision not to pursue further
Saskatchewan asset disposition options at this time. True feels that the new
strategic direction's goal of increased financial flexibility is sufficiently
achieved through the combination of vastly improved commodity prices, receipt
of the Dodsland-Stranraer disposition proceeds, and a continued distribution
level of $0.04 per unit per month, while retaining a larger production base.

    True Energy Trust is an exploration and production oil and gas trust
based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
