LL&E ROYALTY TRUST ANNOUNCES DISTRIBUTION

 LL&E ROYALTY TRUST ANNOUNCES DISTRIBUTION
 HOUSTON, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- LL&E Royalty Trust (NYSE: LRT)


announced today that its monthly distribution to unit holders will be made on or before Oct. 15, 1992 to unit holders of record on Oct. 5, 1992. This distribution represents amounts payable to the Trust with respect to production for the month of July, 1992. The total amount of the October distribution will be $465,507 or approximately $.02451 per unit.
 Commencing with the August 1991 distribution month, the working interest owner began escrowing funds for the estimated cost of dismantlement of platforms in the offshore Louisiana property. The working interest owner's estimate of total dismantlement costs for offshore Louisiana is $2.5 million, which has now been escrowed. (The Trust's interest is equivalent to 90 percent of the net proceeds from offshore Louisiana). The working interest owner has informed the trustee thaecuse dismantlement of any platform will not take place until 1993, it will not exercise its right to escrow up to 125 percent of the estimated cost of dismantlement at this time. It will continue to monitor all relevant facts and estimates regarding such. Therefore, until changes occur which indicate the further escrow of funds from offshore Louisiana properties is warranted, future proceeds from such properties will be paid to the trust.
 As previously announced, a platform has been placed on South Pass Block 86 (in which the Trust has no interest) which is currently producing oil and gas from a reservoir underlying both South Pass Block 86 and South Pass Block 89. The costs expended and charged to South Pass Block 89 in the July production month for design, fabrication and installation of the platform amounted to approximately $658,000. (The Trust's interest is equivalent to 50 percent of the net proceeds from South Pass Block 89). The costs of drilling additional wells will adversely effect revenues to the Trust from South Pass Block 89 for several months.
 The working interest owner has informed the trustee that calculations made, using the most recent reserve report, in accordance with escrow provisions within the Trust documents indicate that it is permitted to place funds in escrow for all of the properties in which the Trust has an interest. The working interest owner has elected not to escrow funds currently on any of the trust properties. However, the working interest owner intends to continue to closely monitor each of the properties in which the Trust has an interest with respect to possible changes in its estimates of relevant factors.
 The extent of future distributions from the properties in which the Trust has an interest will continue to be dependent on normal factors associated with oil and gas operations such as oil and gas production levels, prices and associated costs and the timing and extent of capital expenditures.
