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
$0.040499 per unit, payable on April 13, 2018 to unitholders of record
on March 29, 2018. The distribution primarily represents oil production
during the month of December 2017 and natural gas production during
November 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 58,843 1,898 480,736   16,025 $ 55.79 $ 2.73
Prior Month 62,006 2,067 410,091 13,229 $ 53.29 $ 2.87
 

Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust remained
consistent with the prior month at $3.3 million. An increase in oil cash
receipts as a result of a $2.50 per Bbl increase in the realized
wellhead price was offset by reduced sales volumes during the period.
Sales volumes declined due to payment timing differences, while the
realized wellhead price increased as a result of a 2.3% increase in the
NYMEX price to $58.10.

Natural gas cash receipts increased from $1.2 million in the prior
distribution period to $1.3 million in the current month due to an
increase in natural gas volumes, partially offset by a decrease in the
realized natural gas price. Natural gas volumes increased primarily due
to production volumes from four gross (0.4 net) wells in the
Haynesville, which began production in September 2017. Enduro did not
receive revenues for one of these wells until the current month and, as
a result, prior month distribution calculations did not include the
associated natural gas receipts or sales volumes with respect to this
well. As a result, the current period includes all sales volumes from
this well from the time it came online in September 2017 through
November 2017. Sales volumes related to these 4 gross wells included in
the current month distribution calculation were 6,065 Mcf/D. Excluding
the additional months of production from the well described above, sales
volumes associated with these 4 gross wells for November 2017 would have
been 4,735 Mcf/D.

Total direct operating expenses, including lease operating expenses,
production and ad valorem taxes, and gathering and transportation
expenses, were $2.8 million, an increase of $0.1 million from the prior
month. Capital expenditures for the current month distribution
calculation were $33,000, or $0.1 million less than the prior month.
Total direct operating expenses and capital expenditures relate to
expenses incurred in January 2018.
