Permian Basin Royalty Trust Announces August Cash Distribution

DALLAS, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.109382 per unit, payable on September 15, 2014, to unit holders of record on August 29, 2014.

This month's distribution decreased from the previous month due to one less day of oil production for June 2014, offset by one more day of gas production for May 2014, and an increase in oil prices.

Production for the Trust's allocated portion of the Waddell Ranch and the Texas Royalty Properties combined for oil and gas respectively was 50,457 bbls and 112,187 Mcf.  The average price for oil was $96.40 per bbl and for gas was $6.45 per Mcf.  This would primarily reflect production for the month of June for oil and the month of May 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.

During June 2014, three of the 2014 workover wells were completed and producing.  There were no new wells of the 2014 program completed in the month of June. Capital expenditures were approximately $1,325,441.57.  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 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.  On June 20, 2014, the unitholders approved Southwest Bank as successor trustee, effective August 29, 2014.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed...

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
