The symbol for Whiting USA Trust l is WHX. It is not worth it's current price of $17.69. The distributions from the trust are all classified as a return of capital, which will expire around 2015 when the trust is liquidated. At that time all reserves will have been been produced and sold. About half of the reserves have already been sold and distributions made to the shareholders. The remaining distributions should average around $12-$14 at current prices, although it could be higher or lower depending on oil prices. The trust has very favorable hedges in place, but they will expire in 2012. There will be a final cash distribution to unit owners in 2015, and the properties associated with the trust will revert back to Whiting Petroleum Corporation.
