San Juan Basin Royalty Trust Declares Monthly Cash Distribution
Compass Bank, as Trustee of the San Juan Basin Royalty Trust declared a monthly cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $10,374,903.15 or $0.222595 per unit, based principally upon production during the month of November 2007. The distribution is payable February 14, 2008, to unit holders of record as of January 31, 2008.
Gas production for the properties from which the royalty was carved (the "Underlying Properties") totaled approximately 2,964,382 Mcf (3,220,035 MMBtu). Dividing revenues by production volume yielded an average gas price for November 2007 of $6.94 per Mcf ($6.39 per MMBtu) as compared to $5.75 per Mcf ($5.32 per MMBtu) for October 2007. The average gas price may vary significantly 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. Capital costs for the month were $2,399,917. Lease operating expenses were $2,677,998 and taxes were $1,984,026.
