ARC ENERGY TRUST CONFIRMS MARCH 17, 2008 CASH DISTRIBUTION AMOUNT
CALGARY, February 15, 2008 (AET.UN and ARX - TSX) ARC Energy Trust (the “Trust”) confirms that
the cash distribution to be paid on March 17, 2008, in respect of the February 2008 production, for unitholders
of record on February 29, 2008, will be $0.20 per trust unit. The ex-distribution date is February 27, 2008.
As at February 15, 2008 the Trust’s trailing twelve-month cash distributions, including the February 15, 2008
payment, total $2.40 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 full year 2008 oil and gas production to average approximately
63,000 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.
