Revenues are only posted and distributed when they are received. Most energy
companies normally issue payment of royalties on or about the 25^th of every

of revenue received will be posted in the following month of January in
addition to normal receipts during January. Since the close of business in
December and prior to this press release, approximately $845,000 in revenue
has been received.

Approximately $127,000 for 2012 Ad Valorem taxes was deducted from this
month's distribution as compared to $323,000 for December 2011. These
payments are normal expenditures at this time of year.

The 2012 tax information packets are expected to begin mailing directly to
unitholders in early March 2013. A copy of Sabine's 2012 tax information
booklet will be posted on Sabine's website by March 1, 2013. In addition to
the tax booklet the Sabine website will also offer two simple calculators for
computing the income and expense amounts and the cost depletion. The
calculators are expected to be updated with the 2012 tax information by
February 15, 2013.
