Enduro Royalty Trust Announces Monthly Cash Distribution
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Enduro Royalty Trust (NYS: NDRO) (the "Trust") announced today a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.096825 per unit, payable on June 14, 2013, to unitholders of record on May 31, 2013. The distribution primarily represents oil production during the month of February 2013 and natural gas production during January 2013.
The following table displays underlying oil and natural gas sales volumes and average prices attributable to the current and prior month distributions.
Underlying Sales Volumes
Oil volumes were approximately 2,450 Bbls/D for the current month calculation period, which was consistent with the prior month. The reduced total oil volumes are the result of fewer days of production during February 2013 as compared to January. Average NYMEX oil prices increased slightly from January to February 2013; however, average oil prices received for the production month of February 2013 continued to be impacted by wider than historical basis differentials in the Permian Basin. Basis differentials began narrowing to return to normal levels in March 2013.
Proceeds from the settlement of applicable hedge contracts related to the properties underlying the Trust were approximately $0.7 million, of which $0.1 million related to February 2013 oil hedges and $0.6 million related to March 2013 natural gas hedges.
Capital expenditures for the properties underlying the Trust during the period were approximately $1.0 million, which relates to expenses incurred during March 2013. Capital decreased from the capital reported in prior months as those periods included capital related to two Permian oil wells being drilled in the Lost Tank field in southeastern New Mexico. The Lost Tank wells have completed drilling and are awaiting completion, which is currently scheduled for the third quarter. Capital remains consistent with expectations for the 2013 capital program of $22 - $24 million for the underlying properties ($18 - $19 million net to the Trust's 80% net profits interest) as discussed in the February 2013 presentation included on the Trust's website.
Enduro Royalty Trust is a Delaware statutory trust formed by Enduro Resource Partners to own a net profits interest representing the right to receive 80% of the net profits from the sale of oil and natural gas production from certain of Enduro Resource Partners' properties in the states of Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico. As described in the Trust's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the amount of the periodic distributions is expected to fluctuate, depending on the proceeds received by the Trust as a result of actual production volumes, oil and gas prices and the amount and timing of the Trust's administrative expenses, among other factors. Future distributions are expected to be made on a monthly basis. For additional information on the Trust, please visit www.enduroroyaltytrust.com.
