Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust Announces Planned Increase in Existing Cash Reserve


Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust (NYSE:CHKR) (the "Trust") today announced
that its trustee, The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A. (the
"Trustee"), has determined to gradually increase the Trustee's existing
cash reserve for the payment of future expenses and liabilities of the
Trust, as permitted by the trust agreement.

Commencing with the distribution to unitholders payable in first quarter
2019, the Trustee intends to begin withholding the greater of $70,000 or
3.5% of the funds otherwise available for distribution each quarter to
gradually increase existing cash reserves by a total of approximately
$850,000. The Trustee may increase or decrease the targeted amount at
any time, and may increase or decrease the rate at which it is
withholding funds to build the cash reserve at any time, without advance
notice to the unitholders. Cash held in reserve will be invested as
required by the trust agreement. Any cash reserved in excess of the
amount necessary to pay or provide for the payment of future known,
anticipated or contingent expenses or liabilities eventually will be
distributed to unitholders, together with interest earned on the funds.
