    CALGARY, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Paramount Energy Trust ("PET" or the
"Trust")(TSX:PMT.UN) advises of a correction to the press release dated
February 11, 2008. In the press release the amounts in the NPV Summary table

    PET's light and medium oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids reserves
were evaluated by McDaniel using McDaniel's product price forecasts effective
January 1, 2008 prior to provision for income taxes, interest, debt service
charges and general and administrative expenses. The following table
summarizes the net present value ("NPV") of cash flow at January 1, 2008,
assuming various discount rates. It should not be assumed that the discounted
future net cash flows estimated by McDaniel represent the fair market value of
the potential future production revenue of the Trust.

    Forward-looking Information

    This news release contains forward-looking information. Implicit in this
information, particularly in respect of cash distributions, are assumptions
regarding natural gas prices, production, royalties and expenses which,
although considered reasonable by PET at the time of preparation, may prove to
be incorrect. These forward-looking statements are based on certain
assumptions that involve a number of risks and uncertainties and are not
guarantees of future performance. Actual results could differ materially as a
result of changes in PET's plans, changes in commodity prices, general
economic, market, regulatory and business conditions as well as production,
development and operating performance and other risks associated with oil and
gas operations. There is no guarantee by PET that actual results achieved will
be the same as those forecast herein.

    Non-GAAP Measures

    This news release contains financial measures that may not be calculated
in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in Canada
("GAAP"). Readers are referred to advisories and further discussion on
non-GAAP measures contained in the "Significant Accounting Policies and
Non-GAAP Measures" section of the Trust's Management's Discussion and
    Mcf equivalent (Mcfe) may be misleading, particularly if used in
isolation. In accordance with National Instrument 51-101 ("NI 51-101"), a Mcfe
conversion ratio for oil of 1 Bbl: 6 Mcf has been used, which is based on an
energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip
and does not necessarily represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
