NAL Oil & Gas Trust Announces an Increase in Its Line of Credit

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2007) - NAL OIL & Gas Trust (TSX:NAE.UN) ("NAL") today announces an increase in its line of credit by $75 million to $400 million.

NAL Energy Trust previously announced it had successfully closed its bought deal financing and the acquisition of Seneca Energy Canada Inc. on August 26 and 31, 2007 respectively. In conjunction with the acquisition, NAL requested its lending group led by the Bank of Montreal to review its credit capacity.

The new credit line was granted on Sept 6, 2007 and leaves NAL with approximately $125 million in undrawn committed credit capacity.

Keith Steeves CFO and Vice President Finance stated, "We believe this acquisition fits well with NAL's current operations and positions NAL for future growth. The bought deal financing maintains our strong balance sheet and the incremental credit capacity provides additional flexibility to manage fluctuations in commodity prices and enhances our ability to pursue future acquisition opportunities."
