    TSX: TUI.UN

    CALGARY, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - True Energy Trust ("True" or the "Trust"),
announces that the cash distribution for the month of February will be
$0.12 per unit, to be paid on March 15, 2007 to all unitholders of record as
at February 28, 2007. The ex-distribution date for this payment is February
26, 2007.
    As announced in its press release of February 13, 2007 an annual and
special meeting (the "Meeting") of unitholders and exchangeable shareholders
of True (collectively, "True Securityholders") has been scheduled to be held
on March 30, 2007 at 10:00 AM (Calgary time) for the purposes of, among other
matters, voting upon the previously announced reorganization of the Trust into
a growth oriented, dividend paying intermediate E&P company (the
"Reorganization").
    The Board of Directors has determined that no distribution will be
declared for the month of March 2007, which would normally have been paid on
April 16, 2007 to unitholders of record as at March 30, 2007, pending the
consideration of the Reorganization at the Meeting.
    Combined with a capital efficient growth strategy, True intends to
establish a dividend policy to take effect following the completion of the
Reorganization of True into a corporation. The initial dividend proposed by
True as a corporation is to be set at $0.02 per month to be paid quarterly.
    Should the Reorganization not be approved by True Securityholders, the
Board of Directors will meet in April 2007 to determine the level of
distribution to be paid by the Trust.
    True Energy Trust is pleased to announce an increase in the ratio for
exchanging Exchangeable Shares of True Energy Inc. into units of the Trust
(the "Exchange Ratio") from 0.72355 to 0.73832. This increase is effective on
February 15, 2007.The following are the details used in the calculation of the Exchange
Ratio:
