Advantage Announces Monthly Distribution & Hedging Update

Feb 14, 2007


    CALGARY, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Advantage Energy Income Fund ("Advantage" or
"the Fund") announces that the cash distribution for the month of February
will be $0.15 per Unit. The distribution represents an annualized yield of
14.4% based on the February 13, 2007 closing price of $12.54 per Unit.
    The distribution will be payable on March 15, 2007 to Unitholders of
record at the close of business on February 28, 2007. The ex-distribution date
is February 26, 2007. The cash distribution is based on approximately
113.9 million Units outstanding.
    The CDN$0.15 per Unit is equivalent to approximately US$0.13 per Unit if
converted using a Canadian/US dollar exchange rate of 1.17. The US dollar
equivalent distribution will be based upon the actual Canadian/US exchange
rate applied on the payment date and will be net of any Canadian withholding
taxes that may apply.
    Advantage has also entered additional hedging to help protect cash flows
in 2007 and early 2008. Overall, 48% of our net gas production is now hedged
for the 2007 calendar year at a floor of $7.55/mcf. For the first quarter of
2007, Advantage has secured 58% of our net gas production at an $8.42/mcf
floor price. For the summer months, 54% of our net gas production is hedged at
a floor of $7.08/mcf. The Fund has further hedged approximately 11% of net gas
production for the 2007-2008 winter at a floor price of $8.44/mcf. With
regards to crude oil, Advantage has currently hedged 14% of its 2007 net crude
oil production at an average floor price of US$65.00/bbl. A detailed listing
