DALLAS, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT)
("Permian") today declared a cash distribution to the holders of its units of
beneficial interest of $.049757 per unit, payable on February 14, 2013, to
unit holders of record on January 31, 2013. Permian's cash distribution

This month's distribution decreased from the previous month due to lower
prices for both oil and gas offset by increased production of gas resulting
from the recompletion program of 2012 on the Waddell Ranch properties.
Production for Waddell Ranch and the Texas Royalty Properties combined for oil
and gas respectively was 29,432 bbls and 49,147 Mcf. The average price for
oil was $80.79 per bbl and for gas was $4.37 per Mcf. This would primarily
reflect production for the month of November for oil and the month of October
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.

Approximately seven workover wells were completed in the month of November.
In addition, one horizontal well was completed in November. Capital
expenditures were approximately $2,975,393.60. The numbers provided reflect
what was net to the Trust.

Due to the allocation method of paying for capital expenditures and lease
operating expenses, the Trust's net volumes are reduced in order to pay these
