* Preliminary Crude Oil & Gas Well Gas Monthly Production Total - Significant changes to the preliminary production figures will occur in decreasing amounts for approximately six to eight months due to the filing of corrected and late reports by industry. Commission staff anticipates that the production totals following that period are substantially complete, although continued minor changes occur thereafter. There is no point beyond which an operator may not file corrected production reports.
Historical production information is available on the Commission's website through the Production Data Query System
