KEENE, N.H., July 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Trustees of North European Oil Royalty Trust (NYSE:NRT) announced today a quarterly distribution of $0.15 per unit for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, payable on August 25, 2021 to holders of record on August 13, 2021. Natural gas sold during the second calendar quarter of 2021 is the primary source of royalty income on which the August 2021 distribution is based.
John R. Van Kirk, Managing Director, reported that this year's quarterly distribution of $0.15 per unit is 36.36%, or $0.04 per unit, higher than the distribution of $0.11 per unit for the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Additional details will be available in the earnings press release scheduled for publication on or about August 13, 2021.
The Trust receives nearly all of its royalties under two royalty agreements. The Mobil Agreement, which is the higher royalty rate agreement, covers gas sales from the western half of the Oldenburg concession. The OEG Agreement, which is the lower royalty rate agreement, covers gas sales from the entire Oldenburg concession. The factors determining the amount of gas royalties payable under the two agreements from the preceding calendar quarter are shown in the table below comparing the second calendar quarters of 2021 and 2020.
