Oil cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $2.46 million for the current month, a decrease of $0.30 million from the prior month distribution period as a result of a decrease in sales volumes and oil prices compared to the prior month. Boaz Energy (as defined below) advised the Trustee that the decrease in sales price was primarily attributable to a worsening in the regional differentials to NYMEX, primarily the Midland Cushing differential and the West Texas Sour differential.     

Natural gas cash receipts for the properties underlying the Trust totaled $0.27 million for the current month, an increase of $0.05 million from the prior month distribution period as a result of an increase in sales volumes and gas prices compared to the prior month.

Total direct operating expenses, including lease operating expenses and workover expenses, were $0.60 million, an increase of $0.03 million from the prior month. Severance and ad valorem taxes were $0.28 million, a decrease of $0.01 million from the prior month. 

Capital expenditures were $0.62 million in the current month, an increase of $0.41 million from the prior month.  Boaz Energy advised the Trustee that capital expenditures were primarily attributable to non-operated drilling and completions.

Qualified De Minimis Sale

The Trust today announced that Boaz Energy has sold and assigned its interest in certain leases located in Ward County, Texas.

After consultation with its independent petroleum engineering firm, Boaz Energy certified to the Trust and the Trustee that the transaction is a Qualified De Minimis Sale as contemplated by Section 3.02(c) of the Amended and Restated Trust Agreement of the Trust in that the buyer is not an affiliate of the Trust, the sale relates to an interest in the properties underlying the Trust that accounted for less than 1.0% of total production from those properties during the most recent 12 calendar months, and the aggregate fair value of the portion of the Trust's net profits interest released by the Trustee, together with all other portions of its net profits interest released during the immediately preceding 365-day period does not exceed $500,000.

Boaz Energy has received $234,341 in consideration of the sale of its interest, which is expected to be included in the calculation of net proceeds to be distributed to the Trust in December 2018.

The Trustee has delivered a release of the Trust's net profits interest in those leases.
