MV Oil Trust further announced that the Trust distribution of Net Profits for the first quarterly Payment Period ending March 31, 2008 will be impacted by production curtailment affecting the underlying properties as the result of winter ice storms that impacted western Kansas. The ice associated with these storms disabled electrical power to the affected underlying properties for an extended period of time resulting in some curtailed production. While it is too early to accurately quantify the impact of these storms, the impact is not expected to be as significant as the storm event in the first quarter of 2007.

The first quarter 2008 distribution of Net Profits also will be impacted by the duplication of hedged volumes in January 2008. January crude oil swap contracts in the notional volume of approximately 45,000 barrels at a price of $62.99 will settle in the first quarter 2008. This volume is in addition to the notional volume of 61,167 barrels that had been scheduled as the average monthly notional volume for 2008. Given the current NYMEX price contracts for January crude oil, the incremental hedged volumes will reduce Net Profits for the first quarter 2008. This duplication of hedged volumes for January 2008 is a unique one-time event in the hedge and derivative contracts program and will not occur again for the duration of the Trust.
