ARC Energy Trust announces November 16, 2009 cash distribution amount

CALGARY, Oct. 16 /CNW/ - (AET.UN and ARX - TSX) ARC Energy Trust (the "Trust" or "ARC") announces that the cash distribution to be paid on November 16, 2009, in respect of the October 2009 production, for unitholders of record on October 30, 2009, will be $0.10 per trust unit. The ex-distribution date is October 28, 2009.

As at October 16, 2009 the Trust's trailing twelve-month cash distributions, including the October 15, 2009 payment, total $1.57 per trust unit.

ARC Energy Trust is one of Canada's largest conventional oil and gas royalty trusts with an enterprise value of approximately $5.7 billion. The Trust expects 2009 oil and gas production to average 63,000 to 64,000 of barrels of oil equivalent per day from six core areas in western Canada. ARC Energy Trust units trade on the TSX under the symbol AET.UN and ARC Resources exchangeable shares trade under the symbol ARX.

Note: Barrels of oil equivalent (boe) may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. In accordance with NI 51-101, a boe conversion ratio for natural gas of 6 mcf:1 bbl has been used, which is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
