Permian Basin Royalty Trust Announces March Cash Distribution

DALLAS, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.108529 per unit, payable on April 14, 2014, to unit holders of record on March 31, 2014.

This month's distribution increased from the previous month due to increased production of oil on the Waddell Ranch properties and the completion last month of the prior period adjustments relating to previous years' overpayments to the Trust on gas plant allocations by ConocoPhillips. 

Production for the Trust's allocated portion of the Waddell Ranch and the Texas Royalty Properties combined for oil and gas respectively was 52,628 bbls and 150,840 Mcf.  The average price for oil was $89.58 per bbl and for gas was $6.71 per Mcf. This would primarily reflect production for the month of January for oil and the month of December for gas. The worldwide market conditions continue to affect the pricing for domestic production. It is difficult to predict what effect these conditions will have on future distributions.

Work was started on the 2014 workover wells and six vertical wells of the 2013 program were completed in the month of January. Capital expenditures were approximately $2,031,532.65. The numbers provided reflect what was net to the Trust. Due to the allocation method of paying for capital expenditures and lease operating expenses, the Trust's net volumes are adjusted in order to pay these expenditures.

The Trustee continues to evaluate the claim of $4,542,547 overpayment that was recouped by ConocoPhillips back in September and October 2011. The accounting adjustments and subsequent reimbursements of this claim have been processed through the monthly distributions. These prior period adjustments along with the respective reimbursements of the withheld monies have been completed as of last month, however, these adjustments will continue to be reviewed for accuracy and validity through the 2014 audit period.

As previously disclosed, U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management has announced its intention to resign as trustee of the Trust, subject to certain conditions set forth in the trustee's notice dated January 9, 2014, including unitholder approval of a successor trustee.

The 2013 tax information packets were mailed directly to unitholders in mid-March 2014. A copy of Permian's 2013 tax information booklet is available on Permian's website. In addition to the tax booklet the Permian website also offers two simple calculators for computing the income and expense amounts and the cost depletion. Both calculators are updated for 2013 tax reporting.
