Net income in the first quarter of 2010 was lower than the first quarter 2009 due to the significant decline in gas prices combined with a smaller decline in gas sales.  Lower prices and sales occurred under both royalty agreements.  While the average value of the Euro relative to the dollar was higher, it had the least impact of all these factors.  The Trust receives nearly all of its royalties under two royalty agreements.  The Mobil Agreement is the higher royalty rate agreement and covers gas sales from the western half of the Oldenburg concession.  The OEG Agreement is the lower royalty rate agreement and covers gas sales from the entire Oldenburg concession.  Relevant details are shown below.

For the quarter just ended, Trust interest income decreased 98.08% to $181 from $9,451 in the first quarter of fiscal 2009, reflecting the continuing low interest rates applicable during the period along with the reduced funds available for investment.  Trust expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 decreased 19.09% or $65,662 to $278,299 in comparison to $343,961 in the prior year's equivalent period.   The decrease in costs primarily reflects a reduction in Trustee's fees, which are calculated based on provisions specified in the Trust Agreement.

The previously declared distribution of $0.50 per unit will be paid on February 24, 2010 to owners of record as of February 12, 2010.  For further information contact John R. Van Kirk, Managing Director, at (732) 741-4008 or via e-mail at jvankirk@neort.com.
