NORTH EUROPEAN OIL ROYALTY TRUST ANNOUNCES
THE NET INCOME FOR THE SECOND QUARTER OF FISCAL 2019

Red Bank, N.J. May 15, 2019 - North European Oil Royalty Trust (NYSE-NRT) reported the net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 which appears below compared with the second quarter of fiscal 2018. Total royalty income includes any adjustments made by the operating companies based upon their corrected royalty calculations for prior periods as well as any Mobil sulfur royalties. There were no prior period adjustments for either of the second quarters of fiscal 2019 or 2018. The Trust received separate sulfur royalty payments under the Mobil Agreement of $52,728 and $46,458 during the second quarters of fiscal 2019 and 2018, respectively.

2nd Fiscal Quarter Ended 4/30/2019 2nd Fiscal Quarter Ended 4/30/2018 Percentage Change
Total Royalty Income $2,235,350 $2,054,020 +  8.83%
Net Income $2,001,753 $1,820,337 +  9.97%
Distribution per Unit $0.22 $0.19 +15.79%

The Trust receives all of its royalties under two royalty agreements. The Mobil Agreement, which is the higher royalty rate agreement, covers gas sales from the western half of the Oldenburg concession. The OEG Agreement, which is the lower royalty rate agreement, covers gas sales from the entire Oldenburg concession. The factors determining the amount of gas royalties payable under the two agreements from the preceding calendar quarter are shown in the table below comparing the first calendar quarters of 2019 and 2018. Further details will be available in the Trust's 10-Q filing available through the SEC or on the Trust's website, www.neort.com, on or about May 30, 2019.

Trust expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2019 increased 1.69%, or $3,971, to $238,797 from $234,826 in the second quarter of fiscal 2018. This increase in expenses reflects the acceleration of the payment of domestic accounting costs and an increase in the NYSE annual fee.

Total royalty income received during the first six months of fiscal 2019 increased in comparison to fiscal 2018 due to higher gas prices under both the Mobil and the OEG Agreements. The comparison of the relevant periods is shown below.
