TSX: ENT.UN, ENT.DB, ENT.DB.A

NYSE: ENT

CALGARY, April 8 /CNW/ - Enterra Energy Trust ("Enterra", "We", "Our" or the "Trust") provides an update on the continued listing standards notice from the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and announces that its business plan to address the deficiencies has been approved by the NYSE.

On December 22, 2008, Enterra Energy Trust announced that it had received notification regarding its "below criteria" status with respect to the continued listing requirements of the NYSE. Enterra was required to submit a business plan directed at regaining compliance with both the US$1.00 average closing price and the minimum US$75 million market capitalization criteria. This business plan was submitted by the Trust and the NYSE has confirmed its acceptance.

Currently the minimum US$1.00 average closing price continued listing requirement has been temporarily suspended for all companies listed on the NYSE until at least June 30, 2009. As a result Enterra has until late October 2009 to meet this requirement, or possibly longer if the NYSE extends the temporary suspension. The Trust has until May 2010 to achieve a minimum US$75 million market capitalization.

Enterra continues to be in compliance with the listing requirements of the Toronto Stock Exchange.
