Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust Announces Distribution Of $0.6300 Per Common Unit

Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust (NYSE:CHKR) (the “Trust”) announced today that its common unit distribution for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 (which primarily relates to production attributable to the Trust’s royalty interests from June 1, 2012 through August 31, 2012) will be $0.6300 per common unit. The Trust will also pay a distribution of $0.2208 per subordinated unit for the quarter. The distributions will be paid on November 29, 2012 to all common and subordinated unitholders of record at the close of business on November 19, 2012.

During the three-month production period ended August 31, 2012, total sales volumes and realized oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas prices were lower than estimated. This resulted in quarterly income available for distribution of $0.5277 per unit, which is $0.1023 below the subordination threshold. As a result, the distribution per common unit is the subordination threshold of $0.6300 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 June 1, 2012 to August 31, 2012.

Total oil equivalent volumes (mboe) 968
 
Average price received per production unit: (1)

Natural gas liquids $ 27.49
Natural gas $ 1.72

Distributable income available to unitholders $ 24,670  
Calculated distributable income per unit (2) $ 0.5277  
 
Distributable income per common unit (3) $ 0.6300

(3) Equal to subordination threshold of $0.6300 per common unit.
