Volumes used at the production site include (1) the volume returned to reservoirs in cycling, repressuring of oil reservoirs, and conservation operations; and (2) gas vented and flared.
Marketed Production: Gross withdrawals less gas used for repressuring, quantities vented and flared, and nonhydrocarbon gases removed in treating or processing operations.
The EIA-895 also collected data on volumes returned to formation for repressuring, pressure maintenance, and cycling; quantities vented and flared; quantities of nonhydrocarbon gases removed; quantities of fuel used on lease; and marketed production as well as the monthly volume and value of marketed production.
Marketed production is estimated from gross withdrawals using state estimates of repressuring, vented and flared, and nonhydrocarbon gases removed.
