Whiting USA Trust I Announces Receipt Of Revised Reserve Report
Whiting USA Trust I (NYSE: WHX) announced that it has received a revised December 31, 2009 reserve report relating to the properties in which the Trust has an interest. The Trust holds a net profits interest ("NPI"), which terminates when 9.11 million barrels of oil equivalent (“MMBOE”) have been produced and sold from the underlying properties (which amount is the equivalent of 8.20 MMBOE in respect of the Trust’s right to receive 90% of the net proceeds from such reserves pursuant to the NPI). Based on the revised reserve report from the Trust’s independent petroleum engineer for the underlying properties as of December 31, 2009, the remaining estimated reserves balance is 6.0 MMBOE (5.4 MMBOE at the 90% NPI), as opposed to the 6.3 MMBOE (5.7 MMBOE at the 90% NPI) previously reported, and is expected to be produced by October 31, 2017, as opposed to the previously reported termination date of August 31, 2018. The Trustee has been advised that the revisions are the result of additional reviews in connection with year-end procedures of the underlying data provided to the independent petroleum engineer. There are numerous uncertainties inherent in estimating reserve volumes and values, and the estimates are subject to change as additional information becomes available. The reserves actually recovered and the timing of production of the reserves may vary significantly from the estimates.
