Exhibit 99.1

BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust Announces Record Date and Payment Date for Distribution to Unitholders for the Fourth Quarter of 2021

HOUSTON, Texas January 6, 2022: BP Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust (NYSE: BPT) announces that unitholders will receive a dividend for the quarter ended December 31, 2021. The dividend information is as follows:


Ex-Dividend Date:   
January 14, 2022
Record Date:    January 18, 2022
Payable Date:    January 19, 2022
Dividend Rate:    $0.5811729 per Unit

As provided in the Trust Agreement, the quarterly royalty payment by Hilcorp North Slope, LLC to the Trust is the sum of the individual revenues attributed to the Trust as calculated each day during the quarter. The amount of revenue is determined by multiplying Royalty Production for each day in the calendar quarter by the Per Barrel Royalty for that day. Pursuant to the Trust Agreement, the Per Barrel Royalty for any day is the WTI Price for the day less the sum of (i) Chargeable Costs multiplied by the Cost Adjustment Factor and (ii) Production Taxes.

For the three months ended December 31, 2021 the Per Barrel Royalty was calculated based on the following information:


Average WTI Price

   $ 76.91  

Average Adjusted Chargeable Costs

   $ 62.60  

Average Production Taxes

   $ 2.73  

Average Per Barrel Royalty

   $ 11.57  

Average Net Production (mb/d)


The average daily closing WTI price was above the “break-even” price for the quarter, resulting in a quarterly payment with respect to the Royalty Interest of $12,801,452 to the Trust, after the addition of $333,880 representing an underpayment to the Trust for quarter ended September 30, 2021. In accordance with the Trust Agreement, the Trustee will pay all accrued expenses of the Trust, then distribute the excess, if any, of the cash received by the Trust over the Trust’s expenses to unit holders. After paying the Trust’s expenses accrued through December 31, 2021, $12,437,101 is available for distribution to unitholders.
