DALLAS, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.045907 per unit, payable on October 17, 2016, to unit holders of record on September 30, 2016.

This month's distribution decreased from the previous month due to a decrease in the net production of oil for the underlying properties, along with the decreased pricing of both oil and gas production, the Waddell Ranch Properties contributed $1,366,781 to this month's distribution.

WADDELL RANCH

Production for the underlying properties at the Waddell Ranch was 66,782 barrels of oil and 414,242 Mcf of gas.  The production for the Trust's allocated portion of the Waddell Ranch was 25,053 barrels of oil and 156,417 Mcf of gas.  The average price for oil was $41.57 per bbl and for gas was $2.47 per Mcf.  This would primarily reflect production and pricing for the month of July for oil and the month of June for gas. These allocated volumes were significantly impacted by the pricing of both oil and gas.

This production and pricing for the Underlying Properties resulted in revenues for the Waddell Ranch Properties of $3,798,670.  Deducted from these would be the Lease Operating Expense (LOE) of $1,351,735, taxes of $350,577 and Capital Expenditures (CAPEX) of $273,983 totaling $1,976,294 resulting in a Net Profit of $1,822,375 for the month of August.  With the Trust's Net Profit Interest (NPI) of 75% of the underlying properties, this would result in a net contribution by the Waddell Ranch Properties of $1,366,781 to this month's distribution.  

ConocoPhillips has revised the 2016 capital expenditure budget which will total $2.45 million for the entire Waddell Ranch Project and $1.08 million net to the Trust.  There will be no new drilled wells, no recompletions, and only some facilities projects.

TEXAS ROYALTY PROPERTIES

Production for the underlying properties at the Texas Royalties was 23,420 barrels of oil and 26,696 Mcf of gas.  The production for the Trust's allocated portion of the Texas Royalties was 22,249 barrels of oil and 25,361 Mcf of gas.  The average price for oil was $42.55 per bbl and for gas was $4.52 per Mcf.  This would primarily reflect production and pricing for the month of July for oil and the month of June for gas.

This production and pricing for the underlying properties resulted in revenues for the Texas Royalties of $1,117,248.  Deducted from these would be taxes totaling $185,858 resulting in a Net Profit of $931,390 for the month of August.  With the Trust's Net Profit Interest (NPI) of 95% of the Underlying Properties, this would result in net contribution by the Texas Royalties of $884,820 to this month's distribution.

General and Administrative Expenses deducted for the month were $112,357 resulting in a distribution of $2,139,685 to 46,608,796 units outstanding, or $0.045907 per unit.

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.
