Note-one of the commentors stated that "Management would sell off old wells and drill new ones." BPT has no management and new wells don't benefit the trust. The shadow in the closet is the rising defined cost of production. That kicks in significantly about 2018. The article missed that point and seemed to be written by an accountant-like the last 2/3 articles where they merely stick a stopper in the well at the end of the published reserves.
The article comes out on 7/9 with the ex-distribution date on 7/11. That isn't a coincidence, so for naive/uninformed investors, they see the slam article and then the share price drop. "Wow....maybe there is some truth to BPT being a Trust on life support......I need to get out." This song and dance is being repeated on many stocks, especially those thinly traded like BPT. Be aware.
