In Texas, production is reported by each oil and gas lease rather than individual well. In the case of an oil lease, reported monthly production includes production from all of the wells on the lease, and a single oil lease might include numerous oil wells. Gas leases contain one gas well per lease.
Production reports are due from operators on the last day of the month for the previous month. For example, at the end of August, July production reports are due. For this reason, there is a two-month lag time for online production information.
Production information reported by the Commission is taken directly from the reports submitted to the Commission by the operators.
Production reports reflect a snapshot in time. For this reason, production information may change and be updated as the Commission receives revised, corrected or delinquent production reports from operators.
Historically, production records are substantially complete after about six months.
