Permian Basin Royalty Trust Announces January Cash Distribution

Jan 19, 2010, 11:30 ET from Permian Basin Royalty Trust

DALLAS, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian"), today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $.110049 per unit, payable on February 12, 2010, to unit holders of record on January 29, 2010.  Permian's cash distribution history, current and prior year financial reports, a link to filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission and more can be found on its website at http://www.pbt-permianbasintrust.com/.

This month's distribution decreased slightly from the previous month due primarily to the decline of both production of both oil and gas.  This would primarily reflect production for the month of November.  The worldwide market conditions continue to affect the pricing for domestic production.  It is difficult to predict what effect these conditions will have on future distributions.

Production for Waddell Ranch and the Texas Royalty Properties combined for oil and gas respectively was 53,978 bbls and 236,472 Mcf.  The average price for oil was $72.99 per bbl and for gas was $6.48 per Mcf.  Capital expenditures were approximately $176,528.  The numbers provided reflect what was net to the Trust.
