For Immediate Release

 

Houston, Texas — October 25, 2018 — PACIFIC COAST OIL TRUST (NYSE—ROYT) (the “Trust”), a royalty trust formed by Pacific Coast Energy Company LP (“PCEC”), announced today a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.01693 per unit, payable on November 19, 2018 to unitholders of record on November 5, 2018.  The Trust’s distribution calculation relates to net profits and overriding royalties generated during September 2018 as provided in the conveyance of net profits and overriding royalty interest.  All information in this press release has been provided to the Trustee by PCEC.

 

The current month’s calculation for the Developed Properties resulted in $1.1 million of revenues less direct operating expenses and development costs.  The current month’s revenues were $4.5 million, lease operating expenses including property taxes were $2.7 million and capital expenditures were $0.7 million. Average realized prices for the Developed Properties were $72.86 per Boe in September, as compared to $68.30 per Boe in August. Net profits for the month of September for the Developed Properties were $0.9 million.

 

The current month’s calculation included approximately $76,000 for the 7.5% overriding royalty interest on the Remaining Properties from Orcutt Diatomite and Orcutt Field. Average realized prices for the Remaining Properties were $69.54 per Boe in September, as compared to $65.65 per Boe in August. The cumulative net profits deficit for the Remaining Properties, including the 7.5% overriding royalty interest payments, decreased approximately $0.1 million and now totals $1.6 million as of September 2018.

 

The net cash flow available for distribution to the holders of units of beneficial interest is approximately $0.7 million.  The proceeds expected to be received by the Trust in November of $1.0 million consist of $0.9 million in income from the Developed Properties and approximately $76,000 in income from the 7.5% overriding royalty interest on the Remaining Properties.  The proceeds to be received by the Trust will be partially offset by $91,000 for the monthly operating and services fee payable to PCEC and approximately $230,000 in Trust general and administrative expenses resulting in the net cash flow available for distribution of approximately $0.7 million.

Overview of Trust Structure

 

Pacific Coast Oil Trust is a Delaware statutory trust formed by PCEC to own interests in certain oil and gas properties in the Santa Maria Basin and the Los Angeles Basin in California (the “Underlying Properties”). The Underlying Properties and the Trust’s net profits and royalty interests are described in the Trust’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). As described in the Trust’s filings with the SEC, the amount of any periodic distributions is expected to fluctuate, depending on the proceeds received by the Trust as a result of actual production volumes, oil and gas prices, development expenses, and the amount and timing of the Trust’s administrative expenses, among other factors.

These forward-looking statements include PCEC’s estimates regarding its 2018 capital program and the amount and date of any anticipated distribution to unitholders. Any anticipated distribution is based, in part, on the amount of cash received or expected to be received by the Trust from PCEC with respect to the relevant period. Any differences in actual cash receipts by the Trust could affect this distributable amount. The amount of such cash received or expected to be received by the Trust (and its ability to pay distributions) has been and will be significantly and negatively affected by prevailing low commodity prices, which have declined significantly, could decline further and could remain low for an extended period of time. Other important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include expenses of the Trust and reserves for anticipated future expenses.
