EnerVest FTS Limited Partnership Announces Special Distribution

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 23, 2009) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

EnerVest FTS Limited Partnership 2008 (the "Partnership" or "the Fund") is pleased to announce a special distribution to unitholders of $1.00 per unit. The record date for the distribution is December 31, 2009. The distribution will be deposited into investment accounts on or around January 8, 2010 and will result in a decrease in the adjusted cost base of unitholders' investment.

About the Distribution

During 2009, the Partnership realized capital gains for tax purposes as a result of successful investing activity in the portfolio and the diversification initiatives undertaken by the Portfolio Manager and their advisors. We are providing the special distribution to help reduce the potential tax consequences to unitholders resulting from these capital gains.

About the Partnership

The Fund is designed to provide a tax assisted investment in a diversified portfolio of resource companies involved in oil and gas or mineral exploration and development.
