The Trust receives nearly all of its royalties under two royalty agreements.  The Mobil Agreement is the higher royalty rate agreement and covers gas sales from the western half of the Oldenburg concession.  The OEG Agreement is the lower royalty rate agreement and covers gas sales from the entire Oldenburg concession.  The decline in total royalty income in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2013 primarily resulted from the combination of lower gas sales and lower gas prices under both the Mobil and OEG Agreements.
