Permian Basin Royalty Trust Announces March Cash Distribution

Mar 21, 2011, 12:00 ET from Permian Basin Royalty Trust

DALLAS, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $.135350 per unit, payable on April 14, 2011, to unit holders of record on March 31, 2011.  Permian's cash distribution history, current and prior year financial reports and tax information booklets, 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 increased from the previous month due primarily to higher production of both oil and gas and higher prices for oil.  This would primarily reflect production for the month of January.  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 56,268 bbls and 244,704 Mcf.  The average price for oil was $86.79 per bbl and for gas was $7.19 per Mcf.  Capital expenditures were approximately $571,743.88.  The numbers provided reflect what was net to the Trust.
