Penn Virginia Resource Partners, L.P. Declares Four Percent Increased Quarterly Distribution On Limited Partner Units.

RADNOR, Pa. -- The Board of Directors of Penn Virginia Resource GP, LLC, general partner of Penn Virginia Resource Partners, L.P., (NYSE:PVR), today announced a $0.0225 per unit increase in its quarterly distribution to $0.5625, or $2.25 per unit on an annualized basis. The distribution covers the period October 1 through December 31, 2004, and is payable February 14, 2005 to unitholders of record February 4, 2005.

A. James Dearlove, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Penn Virginia Resource Partners, L.P. said, "We are pleased to announce this four percent increase in PVR's distribution based on our higher coal royalty revenues, which resulted from the strong coal price environment, and the positive outlook for the coal industry. This is the second four percent increase we have announced in 2004. We expect to increase distributions again after closing the previously announced acquisition of a natural gas midstream business from Cantera Resource Holdings LLC. We anticipate closing the acquisition in the first quarter of 2005."

Penn Virginia Resource Partners, L.P. (NYSE:PVR) is a master limited partnership formed by Penn Virginia Corporation (NYSE:PVA) to manage coal properties and related assets. With the acquisition of Cantera, PVR will also become active in the natural gas gathering and processing sector of the energy industry. PVR is headquartered in Radnor, PA.
