FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Compass Bank, as Trustee of the San Juan Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE:SJT),
today declared a monthly cash distribution to the holders of its units
of beneficial interest of $2,957,173.39 or $0.063447 per unit, based
principally upon production during the month of December 2016. The
distribution is payable March 14, 2017, to unit holders of record as of
February 28, 2017.
Gas production for the properties from which the royalty was carved (the
“Subject Interests”) totaled approximately 2,254,973 Mcf (2,514,126
MMBtu) for December 2016. Dividing revenues by production volume yielded
an average gas price for December 2016 of $3.05 per Mcf ($2.73 per
MMBtu) as compared to $2.34 per Mcf ($2.10 per MMBtu) for November 2016.
The average monthly gas price Burlington reports to the Trust is a
calculated price. It is determined by dividing gross monthly revenue by
production volume, and therefore, it does not represent an average of
actual sales prices. The average gas price may vary from the posted
index price for the San Juan Basin. The index price is a gross sales
price, and the revenues used in the calculation of average gas prices
are net of transportation, processing and gathering costs. Furthermore,
the distribution to the Trust in any given month may include significant
volume adjustments for sales in prior months that reflect pricing for
those prior months.
For the month ended January 2017, capital costs were $57,182, lease
operating expenses were $2,053,490, and property taxes were $48,210.
Severance taxes for the December production month were $727,670.
