/NOT FOR DISSEMINATION INTO THE UNITED STATES/
CALGARY, June 15 /CNW/ - Pantera Drilling Income Trust ("Pantera" or the
"Trust") (TSX: RIG.UN) today declared a cash distribution relating to the
period June 1, 2007 to June 30, 2007, in the amount of $0.067 per trust unit
payable on July 16, 2007 to unitholders of record on June 29, 2007.
The Trust has a distribution reinvestment plan (the "Plan"). The Plan
provides eligible unitholders with the opportunity to reinvest their cash
distributions in additional Pantera trust units at 95% of the average market
price, as defined in the Plan. Participation information can be found on our

Cash distributions are not guaranteed and will fluctuate with the
performance of its operating entity, Pantera Drilling LP, which is dependent
upon oil and natural gas prices, the level of activity in the oil and gas
industry, seasonal weather patterns, competition, major customers, third party
suppliers, key personnel and workforce availability, among other risk factors.
Pantera provides contract drilling services to oil and gas exploration
and production companies operating in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
Pantera is committed to providing a safe and reliable fleet of drilling rigs
to its clients. In addition to the deployment of Rig No.'s 8 and 9 in the
fourth quarter of 2006, Pantera recently converted Rig No. 4 from a range 3
telescopic single into a range 2 telescopic double and Rig No.3 from a coil
drilling rig into a 1,600 metre conventional telescopic single. Providing
market conditions are acceptable, Pantera also plans to convert its last
remaining coil drilling rig into a conventional telescopic single in 2007. On
completion of these projects Pantera will have a fleet consisting of two
singles and six telescopic doubles all of which are constructed or had a
significant retrofit in the past four years.
