Reserves

The reserve for expenses will be increased by $50,000 per month, which began with the October 2015 distribution, until the reserve reaches $1,000,000, which is estimated to be mid-2017. This will allow the trust to pay its obligations should any extraordinary events or expenses occur, especially with commodity prices at the current level. The trustee will continue to evaluate and revise the reserve as necessary.
