Pengrowth Reveals Cash Distribution for September

Pengrowth Corporation, administrator of Pengrowth Energy Trust, has announced its September 15, 2008 cash distribution will be C$0.225 per trust unit.

The distribution will be payable to all Pengrowth unitholders who hold trust units on the record date of August 29, 2008.

The distribution of C$0.225 per trust unit is equivalent to approximately U.S. $0.212 per trust unit using a U.S./Canadian dollar exchange ratio of 0.9409.
