DALLAS, June 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT) ("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of beneficial interest of $0.096581 per unit, payable on July 15, 2014, to unit holders of record on June 30, 2014.

This month's distribution decreased from the previous month due to a decrease to the trust in both production and pricing of both oil and gas.  Also, LOE and capital expenditures rose from the previous month, contributing to the decrease.

Production for the Trust's allocated portion of the Waddell Ranch and the Texas Royalty Properties combined for oil and gas respectively was 49,678 bbls and 89,171 Mcf. The average price for oil was $93.23 per bbl and for gas was $6.70 per Mcf. This would primarily reflect production for the month of April for oil and the month of March for gas. The worldwide market conditions continue to affect the pricing for domestic production.  It is difficult to predict what effect these conditions will have on future distributions.
