Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust Announces Distribution Of $0.6100 Per Common Unit

Stocks in this article: CHKR

Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust (NYSE:CHKR) (the “Trust”) announced today that its common unit distribution for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 (which primarily relates to production attributable to the Trust’s royalty interests from March 1, 2012 through May 31, 2012) will be $0.6100 per common unit. The Trust will also pay a distribution of $0.4819 per subordinated unit for the quarter. The distributions will be paid on August 30, 2012 to all common and subordinated unitholders of record at the close of business on August 20, 2012.

During the three-month production period ended May 31, 2012, total sales volumes and realized oil prices were slightly higher than estimated for the period. However, realized natural gas and natural gas liquids prices were significantly lower than estimated. This resulted in quarterly income available for distribution of $0.5780 per unit, which is $0.0320 below the subordination threshold. As a result, the distribution per common unit is the subordination threshold of $0.6100 for the quarter.

The following table provides sales volumes, realized prices and revenue attributable to the Trust’s royalty interests, expenses of the Trust and distributable income available to unitholders for the production period from March 1, 2012 to May 31, 2012.

Sales volumes:  
Oil (mbbl) 168
Natural gas liquids (mbbl) 328
Natural gas (mmcf) 3,144
Total oil equivalent volumes (mboe) 1,020
 
Average price received per production unit: (1)
Oil $ 97.96
Natural gas liquids $ 32.83
Natural gas $ 1.17
 

Distributable income calculation (in thousands except per unit income):

Revenue less production taxes (1) $ 30,159
Derivative settlement loss ($2,623 )
Trust expenses   ($516 )
Distributable income available to unitholders $ 27,020  
Calculated distributable income per unit (2) $ 0.5780  
 
Distributable income per common unit (3) $ 0.6100
Distributable income per subordinated unit $ 0.4819
 

(1) Includes the effect of certain marketing, gathering and transportation deductions.

(2) Based on 46,750,000 units issued and outstanding, consisting of 35,062,500 common units and 11,687,500 subordinated units.

(3) Equal to subordination threshold of $0.6100 per common unit.

Due to the timing of the payment of production proceeds to the Trust, quarterly distributions generally include royalties attributable to sales of oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas for three months, including the first two months of the quarter just ended and the last month of the prior quarter.
