AUSTIN, Texas--(Business Wire)--
ECA Marcellus Trust I (NYSE:ECT) is a statutory trust formed in March 2010 to
own certain royalty interests as summarized below and to distribute to the Trust
unitholders cash that the Trust receives in respect of the royalty interests
after the payment of Trust expenses. The Trust does not conduct any operations
or activities. In view of the unusual market activity in the Trust`s Common
Units of Beneficial Interest on March 5, 2013, the New York Stock Exchange
contacted the Trust on March 6, 2013 in accordance with its usual practice. The
Trust stated that its policy is not to comment on unusual market activity. 

The Trust was formed by Energy Corporation of America ("ECA") to own royalty
interests in natural gas properties owned by ECA in the Marcellus Shale
formation in Greene County, Pennsylvania, and is entitled to receive certain
amounts of the proceeds attributable to ECA`s interest in the sale of production
from the properties. As described in the Trust`s filings, the amount of the
quarterly distributions is expected to fluctuate from quarter to quarter,
depending on the proceeds received by the Trust as a result of production and
natural gas prices and the amount of the Trust`s administrative expenses, among
other factors.
