Enduro Royalty Trust Announces Monthly Cash Distribution

Share:

Enduro Royalty Trust (NYSE:NDRO) (the "Trust") today announced a cash
distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of
$0.018433 per unit, payable on February 14, 2018 to unitholders of
record on January 31, 2018. The distribution primarily represents oil
production during the month of October 2017 and natural gas production
during September 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 52,890     1,706 353,764     11,792 $ 47.83 $ 2.87
Prior Month 59,411 1,980 308,694 9,958 $ 46.84 $ 2.88
 

Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $2.5
million for the current month, a decrease of $0.3 million from the prior
month calculation as a result of a reduction in sales volumes compared
to the prior month, due to payment timing differences as well as
adjustments related to prior periods. Included in the current month
distribution calculation is an adjustment by an operator in the Permian
Basin reflecting an adjusted working interest in a well, which resulted
in a reduction of 2,814 Bbls related to prior production periods. The
reduction in oil revenues due to the decrease in sales volumes was
offset by an increase in the realized wellhead price as a result of a
4.1% increase in the NYMEX price to $51.58.

Natural gas cash receipts increased from $0.9 million in the prior
distribution period to $1.0 million in the current month due to
increases in natural gas volumes. Natural gas volumes increased
primarily due to production volumes from four gross (0.45 net) wells in
the Haynesville, which began production in September 2017. These wells
contributed 19% and 21% of the current month's natural gas revenues and
volumes, respectively. As these wells began producing in September, the
current month's volumes represent production for a partial month. Sales
volumes related to these wells included in the current month
distribution calculation were 2,477 Mcf/D.

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 due to an increase in
lease operating expenses. Capital expenditures for the current month
distribution calculation were minimal at $20,000. Total direct operating
expenses and capital expenditures relate to expenses incurred in
November 2017.
