FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TXO Partners, L.P. (NYSE: TXO) announced today that the Board of Directors of its general partner declared a distribution of $0.52 per common unit for the quarter ended September 30, 2023. The quarterly distribution will be paid on November 27, 2023, to eligible unitholders of record as of the close of trading on November 17, 2023.
“With the ongoing challenges in the world, we are proud to offer a secure asset base and a confident business strategy for our owners,” stated Bob R. Simpson, Chairman and CEO. “Given the positive back-drop of commodity pricing, we foresee our current $2 per unit yearly distribution expectation moving higher in 2024.”
“Our financial focus is straightforward. We strive to generate cash flow through efficient operations that provide substantial distributions and propel value creation,” further commented, President of Business Operations and CFO, Brent Clum. “Our team added modestly to our operations during the quarter which gives further support for out years.”
“Beginning in August, shut-in time at our plant in the Vacuum Field affected production. We expect facility repairs and upgrades to continue into the fourth quarter as we expand for our future,” also stated Keith A. Hutton, President of Production and Development. “Our legacy reservoirs, particularly the Vacuum Field, are rich with reserves that our team is focused on developing over the long term. This means investment in our facilities and recovery techniques.”
