Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $2.60 million for the current month, an increase of $0.51 million from the prior month distribution period as a result of increased sales volumes and a longer production month in March 2019, as well as from the Permian Basin oil differential returning to more historic norms in the production month of March 2019.   

Natural gas cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $0.16 million for the current month, a decrease of $0.10 million from the prior month distribution period as a result of decreased sales prices 

Total direct operating expenses, including lease operating expenses and workover expenses, were $0.45 million, a decrease of $0.25 million from the prior month. Severance and ad valorem taxes were offset by a one-time severance tax refund of $0.29 million on Boaz Energy's Terry County Clearfork waterflood. Going forward, the Terry County Clearfork field qualifies for a 50% reduction in severance tax as the result of the secondary recovery efforts. This offset resulted in a net positive cashflow to the Trust of $0.05 million, after reducing the total refund amount by the amount of oil and gas severance taxes and ad valorem taxes for the current month.  

Capital expenditures were $0.23 million in the current month, a decrease of $0.03 million from the prior month. Boaz Energy indicated that the capital was primarily spent for drilling and completion operations in the Permian Platform area. Assuming it obtains the required permits, Boaz Energy expects to drill a new operated well in the Permian Clearfork area at an estimated cost of $1.20 million. The majority of the development expenses of that well would be applied to the computation of the Trust's net profits over a period of four to six months. Boaz Energy has advised the Trustee that $325,000 in capital accrual was included in the May net profits calculation.

The Trustee has retained $65,000 from the distributions the Trust received in May 2019. Pursuant to the amended and restated Trust Agreement, dated as of May 4, 2018, by and among Boaz Energy, the Trustee and Wilmington Trust, National Association (the "Trust Agreement"), following the monthly period ended April 30, 2019, the Trustee is authorized to retain cash up to $1.0 million from the distributions the Trust receives to be used by the Trust in the event that its cash on hand (including available cash reserves) is not sufficient to pay ordinary course administrative expenses as they become due. Accordingly, the Trustee will retain cash from distributions in amounts as the Trustee determines, but not less than $25,000 per month or more than $100,000 per month until such time as the Trust's cash reserve equals or exceeds $1.0 million.
