EnerVest Energy and Oil Sands Total Return Trust Announces Allocation of 2010 Distributions

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) -

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

EnerVest Energy and Oil Sands Total Return Trust ("EnerVest" or the "Fund") (TSX:EOS.UN) announced today the allocation of the distributions declared in 2010 to Canadian resident unitholders. EnerVest distributed $0.50 per unit in 2010, 100% of which is Return of Capital. Return of Capital reduces the adjusted cost base of the unitholder's trust unit. 

T3 Tax Slips
Information regarding the tax breakdown of the EnerVest distributions has been sent electronically to Investment Dealers, who are responsible for the preparation and delivery of T3 tax slips to their clients. Registered unitholders (namely, unitholders who hold a physical share certificate) will receive their T3 tax slips directly from Computershare, our transfer agent. Computershare's toll-free telephone number is 1-800-564-6253. The mailing deadline for delivery of the tax slips is March 31, 2011. However, we urge investors to contact their Investment Advisor directly to determine their specific preparation and delivery schedule. 

Non-Resident Unitholders
Non-resident unitholders are not subject to the same tax breakdown as Canadian resident unitholders. Please consult your tax professional or Investment Advisor to discuss your particular situation.
