Permianville Royalty Trust Announces Monthly Cash Distribution


Permianville Royalty Trust (PVL) (the “Trust”) today announced a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.044000 per unit, payable on October 15, 2019 to unitholders of record on September 30, 2019. The net profits interest calculation represents reported oil production for the month of June 2019 and reported natural gas production during May 2019. The calculation includes accrued costs incurred in July 2019. The net profits calculation this month also includes the release of previously withheld cash as part of the 2017 Permian asset sale, as detailed further below.

The following table displays reported underlying oil and natural gas sales volumes and average received wellhead prices attributable to the current and prior month recorded net profits interest calculations.

Recorded oil cash receipts from the oil and gas properties underlying the Trust (the “Underlying Properties”) totaled $3.2 million for the current month on realized wellhead prices of $49.55/bbl, a decrease of $0.2 million from the prior month distribution period due to a decrease in realized prices, partially offset by higher total volumes.

Recorded natural gas cash receipts from the Underlying Properties totaled $0.7 million for the current month on realized wellhead prices of $2.15/mcf. Gas cash receipts represented a $0.2 million increase from the prior month, due to higher volumes which offset slightly lower realized prices.

Total accrued operating expenses for the period were $2.7 million, a $0.4 million increase month-over-month from June 2019, due in part to higher costs associated with the increase in volumes. The accrued operating expenses also include a one-time, approximately $0.3 million cost true-up received this month from one of the operators of the Underlying Properties for expenses incurred in 2018 but not invoiced until this month. Capital expenditures decreased $0.5 million, to $0.1 million, in the current month, but are expected to exceed that level, on average, during the remaining months of this year.

The distribution also reflects the release of the $750,000 withheld from the net proceeds allocable to the Trust from the September 2017 sale by Enduro Resource Partners LLC of certain properties in the Permian Basin, which amount was intended to cover possible indemnification obligations arising within two years of the closing of the sale. Together with interest, a total of approximately $752,000 is therefore included in the cash distribution to unitholders.

About Permianville Royalty Trust

Permianville Royalty Trust is a Delaware statutory trust formed 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, predominantly non-operated, oil and gas properties in the states of Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico. As described in the Trust’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), 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, the amount and timing of capital expenditures, and 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.permianvilleroyaltytrust.com.
