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.
Natural gas production data are collected from 32 gas-producing States on the voluntary Form EIA-895 "Monthly Quantity and Value of Natural Gas Report." The form requests data on gross withdrawals, gas vented and flared, repressuring, nonhydrocarbon gases removed, fuel used on leases, marketed production (wet), and extraction loss.
Monthly State estimates for nonhydrocarbon gas removed, gas used for repressuring, and gas vented and flared are based on the ratio of the item to gross withdrawals as reported on the annual EIA-895.
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.
