Penn West Announces Its Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2009

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2009) - PENN WEST ENERGY TRUST (TSX:PWT.UN) (NYSE:PWE) is pleased to announce its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009.


- Second quarter production averaged 180,601 (1) boe per day and was weighted 58 percent to oil and natural gas liquids. This production level again exceeded our guidance of 180,000 boe per day before net dispositions or an average of approximately 177,000 boe per day after net dispositions that were completed in the first two quarters of 2009.

- Crude oil and NGL production averaged 104,070 barrels per day and natural gas production averaged approximately 459 mmcf per day in the second quarter of 2009.

- Development capital expenditures were $140 million in the second quarter of 2009 before $4 million of net asset dispositions, resulting in capital expenditures of $136 million prior to business combinations. In the quarter, we drilled a total of 12 net wells with a success rate of 100 percent.

Financial Results

- Funds flow (2) of $430 million in the second quarter of 2009 was 43 percent lower than the $753 million realized in the second quarter of 2008. On a per-unit-basis (2) basic funds flow was $1.05 per unit in the second quarter of 2009 compared to $2.00 per unit in the second quarter of 2008.

- Net loss of $41 million ($0.10 per unit-basic) in the second quarter of 2009 compared to net loss of $323 million ($0.86 per unit-basic) in the second quarter of 2008.

- The netback (2) of $25.64 per boe in the second quarter of 2009 was 46 percent lower than the second quarter of 2008 due primarily to lower commodity prices.

- Net debt (2) reduction, including working capital, was approximately $349 million (3) in the first half of 2009.

Business Environment

- WTI averaged US$59.62 per barrel in the second quarter of 2009 compared to US$124.00 per barrel for the same period in 2008. The decline in the benchmark WTI oil price was primarily due to the recession, which decreased demand most notably for distillate products. Partially offsetting the year over year decline in oil price was a weakening Canadian dollar against the US dollar. WTI appreciated from an average of US$43.21 per barrel in the first quarter of 2009 to an average of $59.62 per barrel in the second quarter.

- The AECO Monthly Index averaged $3.47 per GJ in the second quarter of 2009 compared to $8.86 per GJ for the same period in 2008. The decline in natural gas prices was the result of the lower industrial demand due to the economic downturn. Additionally, significant drilling activity prior to the recession, primarily in the U.S. targeting unconventional natural gas, contributed to high production levels relative to demand. The AECO Monthly Index declined from an average of $5.34 per GJ in the first quarter to an average of $3.47 per GJ in the second quarter, reflecting the continued weakness in demand.

(2) The terms "funds flow", "funds flow per unit-basic", "netback" and "net
    debt" are non-GAAP measures. Please refer to the "Calculation of Funds
    Flow" and "Non-GAAP Measures Advisory" sections below. Funds flow for
    the second quarter of 2009 includes $75 million of gains realized from
    foreign exchange contracts including monetizing the remainder of the
    2009 contracts entered to hedge oil prices.
(3) Consists of $64 million long-term debt reduction and an increase of
    non-cash operating and investing working capital of $165 million and
    $120 million, respectively, per the Consolidated Statement of Cash



- During the second quarter of 2009, Penn West continued to strengthen its debt portfolio and risk management program.

- In May 2009, Penn West closed the private placement of senior unsecured notes (the "2009 Notes") with an aggregate principal amount of approximately $238 million. The 2009 Notes have terms of five years to 10 years and bear an average fixed interest rate of approximately 8.9 percent. The proceeds of the issue were used to reduce bank debt.

- During the second quarter of 2009, Penn West entered into additional crude oil collars on 15,000 barrels per day of crude oil for 2010 at prices between US$63.33 per barrel and US$78.09 per barrel. Additional crude oil hedges for 2010 increase the certainty of future funds flow during this time of commodity price volatility.

- In June 2009, Penn West monetized its 2009 foreign exchange contracts related to oil collars for the second half of 2009 for proceeds of $57 million. These proceeds were used to repay a portion of Penn West's syndicated bank facility.


- Penn West's Board of Directors resolved to maintain the Trust's distribution level at $0.15 per unit, per month, for the period August 2009 through November 2009, subject to maintenance of current forecasts of commodity prices, production levels and planned capital expenditures.

Reece Acquisition

- On April 30, 2009, Penn West closed of the acquisition of Reece Energy Exploration Corp. ("Reece"). The total acquisition cost was approximately $101 million including approximately $42 million of Reece's debt and working capital. We have reduced our planned 2009 development spending by the amount of debt assumed. The acquisition added approximately 1,900 barrels of oil equivalent per day to our production base and 64,000 acres of undeveloped land, the majority of which is located in our Dodsland oil resource play.


- In June 2009, the Government of Alberta extended two components of the Energy Incentive Program which became effective on April 1, 2009. The drilling royalty credit which provides a $200 per metre of drilling depth credit on all conventional oil and natural gas wells drilled and the new well incentive program which offers a maximum five percent royalty rate on all new wells that begin producing conventional oil or natural gas after the effective date have been extended by an additional year and will now expire on March 31, 2011.

- In August 2009, subsequent to the end of the second quarter, the Government of British Columbia announced a stimulus program (the "Program") for oil and gas drilling activity in the province. The Program includes a one year, two percent royalty rate on wells drilled in the province beginning in September 2009 and ending in June 2010, an increase of approximately 15 percent to existing royalty deductions for natural gas deep drilling and drilling credits on horizontal wells drilled at depths between 1,900 and 2,300 metres.

In February 2009, Penn West issued approximately 17.7 million trust units on a bought deal basis with a syndicate of underwriters. On April 30, 2009, Penn West issued an additional 4.7 million trust units on the closing of the Reece acquisition.

Letter to our Unitholders

We are pleased to report that Penn West delivered results in excess of our guidance again during the second quarter of 2009. After completing a substantial organizational restructuring in late 2008, our operating and development teams are gaining momentum. Average daily production for the second quarter of 2009 was 180,601 boe per day, which exceeded our guidance of 177,000 boe per day net of acquisitions and dispositions. We are on target to achieve full-year 2009 production guidance of 175,000 - 180,000 boe per day.

Funds flow for the quarter was $430 million or $1.05 per unit, up from $348 million or $0.87 per unit in the first quarter of this year but down from the same period last year. Although natural gas prices remained weak in the second quarter of 2009, oil prices strengthened with WTI averaging US$59.62 per barrel compared to an average WTI price of US$43.21 per barrel in the first quarter of 2009.

During the second quarter of 2009 we achieved an average netback of $25.64 per boe, which included a realized hedging gain of $5.46 per boe. Currently, approximately 31 percent of 2009 crude oil production is hedged with collars having floors averaging US$80.00 per barrel. Approximately 22 percent of 2009 natural gas production is hedged with collars having floors averaging $6.50 per GJ. Penn West has also hedged a portion of oil and natural gas for 2010. Approximately 32 percent of 2010 crude oil production is hedged with collars having floors averaging US$57.63 per barrel and approximately 11 percent of 2010 natural gas production is hedged with collars having floors averaging $6.50 per GJ. Penn West has also extended the term of some of our natural gas contracts into 2010. Penn West continues to use a prudent risk management program to mitigate the impact of volatile commodity pricing on both our capital program and our monthly distribution.

Based on capital expenditures in the first half of the year and average daily production to-date it is clear that our efforts to achieve improved returns on capital deployed are succeeding. Capital expenditures were $140 million in the second quarter of 2009, bringing the first half of 2009 capital expenditures total to $321 million. This was in-line with our first half guidance of $250 million to $325 million in capital expenditures.

In the first six months of 2009, Penn West has reduced net debt, including working capital, by approximately $350 million. Debt diversification also remains a priority for Penn West. Penn West completed the placement of approximately $238 million of senior unsecured notes in the second quarter of 2009, bringing our total long-term private debt to $1.5 billion with average terms of 5 - 13 years and an average interest rate of approximately 6.6 percent.

Penn West currently has an excellent portfolio of properties that can be explored and developed to grow the company organically when complimented by strategic acquisitions and selective divestitures. Through prudent allocation of capital to our extensive land base of approximately seven million net acres, we have the opportunity to economically increase our drilling inventory over the coming months. As we move towards transition from a trust to an exploration and production company we will ramp up activity on our properties. We recognize that a robust economic climate and good commodity pricing are also two important catalysts for growth. Our current trust structure allows us to make a measured transition to a conventional E&P model. We believe that Penn West's assets will be able to sustain an economic level of reinvestment over a long period of time. We believe that this focus, along with our ongoing debt repayment agenda, will increasingly add economic value to the company and thus enable us to deliver a superior rate of return to our unitholders.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

William E. Andrew                   Murray R. Nunns

This outlook section is included to provide unitholders with information as to our expectations as at August 11, 2009 for production and net capital expenditures for 2009 and readers are cautioned that the information may not be appropriate for any other purpose. This information constitutes forward-looking information. Readers should note the assumptions, risks and disclaimers under "Forward-Looking Statements".

Our forecast 2009 development capital expenditures remain at the lower end of our $600 million to $825 million range. The reduction of our planned capital program in 2009 compared to 2008 reflects year over year commodity price erosion. In the second half of 2009, we currently anticipate spending between $250 million and $300 million based on current expectations for commodity price levels and industry costs. The remaining 2009 capital program will continue to be focused on low cost production recovery and additions through production optimization and the advancement of certain of our resource plays and enhanced oil recovery projects. Based on this level of capital expenditures, we forecast 2009 average production to be in the range of approximately 175,000 to 180,000 boe per day. We continue to monitor the improvement in crude oil pricing and our capital efficiencies. Continued improvement in both of these areas could result in management seeking Board approval to target capital expenditures at a higher level in our guidance range.

Our prior forecast, released on May 6, 2009 with our 2009 first quarter results and filed on SEDAR at, was based on 2009 capital expenditures (excluding corporate acquisitions) between $600 million and $825 million with the expectation that spending will be near to the lower end of the range and average production of approximately 180,000 boe per day, prior to the effect of property dispositions, for the first half of 2009. Penn West exceeded its first half 2009 production guidance primarily due to drilling success at our resource oil plays and strong production optimization performance.

Non-GAAP Measures Advisory

The above information includes non-GAAP measures not defined under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), including funds flow, funds flow per unit-basic, netback, payout ratio and net debt. Non-GAAP measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Funds flow is cash flow from operating activities before changes in non-cash working capital and asset retirement expenditures. Funds flow is used to assess our ability to fund distributions and planned capital programs. Netback is a per-unit-of-production measure of operating margin used in capital allocation decisions. Operating margin is calculated as revenue less royalties, operating costs and transportation. Payout ratio is distributions paid divided by funds flow and we use it to assess the adequacy of funds flow to fund capital programs. Net debt is the total of long-term debt and working capital (excluding risk management and future income taxes) and is used to assess the appropriateness of our distribution level and capital program.

Funds flow for the second quarter of 2009 includes realized gains of $75 million (2008 - $nil) on foreign exchange forward contracts of which $57 million was realized from monetizing our 2009 foreign exchange contracts related to oil collars for the second half of 2009.

Oil and Gas Information Advisory

Barrels of oil equivalent (boe) are based on six mcf of natural gas equalling one barrel of oil (6:1). This could be misleading if used in isolation as it is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applied at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

Forward-Looking Statements
