Calgary, Canada, October 20, 2011 --( Petrocapita Income Trust is pleased to announce the cash distribution for Q3 2011 in respect of its Preferred Trust Unitholders of record as of September 30, 2011. The Q3 distribution was $0.0258 per unit.

Petrocapita is a Calgary based energy investment trust built around the core premise that the world is in a bull market in commodities driven by inflation and a step-change increase in demand and, accordingly, that investments with direct or indirect exposure to commodities in a politically stable environment such as Canada will provide above average returns. Petrocapita was designed to fill the niche formerly occupied by the public energy income trust and is building a portfolio of oil assets with a focus on low cost acquisition of cash flow. The fund was created to allow investors to add professionally managed oil & gas assets directly to their portfolios without the need to take on the complex responsibilities of ownership themselves. Petrocapita is eligible for all registered plans including RRSPs and TFSAs.
