Share:





Enduro Royalty Trust (NYSE:NDRO) (the "Trust") today announced a cash
distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of
$0.015040 per unit, payable on July 17, 2017 to unitholders of record on
June 30, 2017. The distribution primarily represents oil production
during the month of March 2017 and natural gas production during
February 2017.

The following table displays underlying oil and natural gas sales
volumes and average received wellhead prices attributable to the current
and prior month net profits interest calculations.

    Underlying Sales Volumes       Average Price
Oil       Natural Gas Oil     Natural Gas
Bbls     Bbls/D Mcf     Mcf/D (per Bbl)     (per Mcf)
Current Month 63,106 2,036 291,314     10,404 $ 47.42 $ 3.01
Prior Month 57,714 2,061 305,783 9,864 $ 50.05 $ 3.48
 

Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $3.0
million for the current month, an increase of $0.1 million from the
prior month calculation as a result of three additional days of
production in March compared to February, offset by a decline in the
average price received per Bbl as a result of a corresponding decrease
in the average NYMEX price of oil for the period. Natural gas cash
receipts decreased from $1.1 million in the prior distribution period to
$0.9 million in the current month primarily due to a decrease of 14
percent in the realized wellhead price as compared to the prior month.
The decrease in realized wellhead price was driven by decreases in
futures pricing for February, which is the basis upon which a
significant portion of the East Texas / North Louisiana gas volumes are
sold. In addition, there were three fewer days of production in February
as compared to January.

Total direct operating expenses, including lease operating expenses,
production and ad valorem taxes, and gathering and transportation
expenses, increased $0.3 million to $2.7 million. The increase in direct
operating expenses is primarily due to higher than normal lease
operating expenses for operations in the New Mexico Permian area.
Capital expenditures decreased $0.1 million from the previous period's
$0.5 million. Total direct operating expenses and capital expenditures
relate to expenses incurred during April 2017.
