EnerVest FTS Limited Partnership 2009 Announces Return of Capital Contribution to CEE Unitholders

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 26, 2010) -

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

EnerVest 2009 General Partner Corp., the general partner of EnerVest FTS Limited Partnership 2009, is announcing that it will be returning capital contributions in the amount of $12.73 per CEE Unit. These funds are being returned to all Unitholders in accordance with the Limited Partnership Agreement dated October 30, 2009. This Agreement states that any available funds that have not been committed to purchase flow-through securities by December 31, 2009 shall be returned to the Unitholders on a pro rata basis, on or before January 31, 2010, together with accrued interest.

These funds will be returned to your account with your financial advisor. We would have preferred to invest one hundred percent of our Unitholders' funds. However, we did not believe the remaining flow-through investments available at the end of 2009 offered sufficient long-term returns, nor did these investments meet our risk tolerance criteria. We believe the alternative of returning excess contributions to our Unitholders is a prudent decision.

For further information please contact your tax professional and the financial advisor who assisted you with your subscription.
