Hugoton Royalty Trust Declares May Cash Distribution

DALLAS, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Bank, as Trustee of the Hugoton Royalty Trust (NYSE: HGT) (the "Trust"), today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.006021 per unit, payable on June 14, 2017, to unitholders of record on May 31, 2017. The following table shows underlying gas sales and average prices attributable to the net overriding royalty for both the current month and prior month.  Underlying gas sales volumes attributable to the current month were primarily produced in March.

Underlying Gas Sales

Volumes (Mcf) (a)

Average Gas



Price per Mcf

Current Month




Prior Month




(a)    Sales volumes are recorded in the month the Trust receives the related net profits income.  Because of this, sales volumes may fluctuate from month to month based on the timing of cash receipts.

XTO Energy has advised the trustee that it has deducted budgeted development costs of $200,000, production expense of $1,416,000 and overhead of $932,000 in determining the royalty payment to the Trust for the current month.

Excess Costs

XTO Energy has advised the trustee that increased gas production in the current month distribution led to the partial recovery of excess costs on properties underlying the Kansas net profits interests. However, after the partial recovery there were no remaining proceeds from properties underlying the Kansas net profits interests to be included in the current month's distribution.

XTO Energy has advised the trustee that lower gas prices caused costs to exceed revenues on properties underlying the Wyoming net profits interests. However, these excess costs did not reduce net proceeds from the remaining conveyances.

Statements made in this press release regarding future events or conditions are forward looking statements.  Actual future results, including development costs and future net profits, could differ materially due to changes in natural gas prices and other economic conditions affecting the gas industry and other factors described in Part I, Item 1A of the Trust's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016.
