Permian Basin Royalty Trust Announces June Cash Distribution

Share:

DALLAS, June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.034538 per unit, payable on July 15, 2016, to unit holders of record on June 30, 2016.

This month's distribution increased from the previous month due to an increase in the pricing of oil and gas but offset by a decrease in production due to a shorter month of April for the Waddell Ranch.  Also, with the increased pricing of production, the Waddell Ranch Properties are no longer in a deficit balance and contributed $1,012,222 to this month's distribution.

WADDELL RANCH

Production for the underlying properties at the Waddell Ranch was 74,177 barrels of oil and 403,249 Mcf of gas.  The production for the Trust's allocated portion of the Waddell Ranch was 22,498 barrels of oil and 120,459 Mcf of gas.  The average price for oil was $37.06 per bbl and for gas was $1.89 per Mcf.  This would primarily reflect production and pricing for the month of April for oil and the month of March for gas. These allocated volumes were significantly impacted by the pricing of both oil and gas.

This production and pricing for the Underlying Properties resulted in revenues for the Waddell Ranch Properties of $3,512,055.  Deducted from these would be the Lease Operating Expense (LOE) of $1,481,990, taxes of $352,410 and Capital Expenditures (CAPEX) of $328,025 totaling $2,162,426 resulting in a Net Profit of $1,349,630 for the month of May.  With the Trust's Net Profit Interest (NPI) of 75% of the underlying properties, this would result in a net contribution by the Waddell Ranch Properties of $1,012,222 to this month's distribution.  

ConocoPhillips has revised the 2016 capital expenditure budget which will total $2.45 million for the entire Waddell Ranch Project and $1.08 million net to the Trust.  There will be no new drilled wells, no recompletions, and only some facilities projects.
