Revenue from Contracts with Customers

The Company recognizes oil, natural gas and NGL revenue at the point in time when control of the product transfers to the customer, which differs depending on the contractual terms of each of the Company’s arrangements. Transfer of control drives the presentation of gathering, transportation, processing and other post-production expenses (“gathering and transportation expense”) within the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. In these scenarios below, the Company evaluates whether it is the principal or the agent in the transaction and the analysis includes considerations of product redelivery, take-in-kind rights and risk of loss. For those contracts where the Company has concluded that control of the product transfers at the tailgate of the plant, meaning that the Company is the principal and the ultimate third party purchaser is its customer, the Company recognizes revenue on a gross basis, with transportation, processing and gathering expenses presented within the Gathering and transportation line item on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Alternatively, for those contracts where the Company has concluded control of the product transfers at or near the wellhead or inlet of the plant, meaning that the Company is the agent and the midstream processing company is the Company’s customer, the Company recognizes natural gas and NGL revenues based on the net amount of proceeds received from the midstream processing company.

Performance obligations

The Company’s contractual performance obligations arise upon the production of hydrocarbons from wells in which the Company has an ownership interest. The performance obligations are considered satisfied upon control transferring to a customer at the wellhead, inlet, or tailgate of the midstream processor’s processing facility, or other contractually specified delivery point. For all commodity products, the Company records revenue in the month production is delivered to the customer. Settlement statements for certain natural gas and NGL sales may not be received for 30 to 90 days after the date production volumes are delivered and for oil, generally within 30 days after delivery has occurred. However, payment is unconditional once the performance obligations have been satisfied. At this time, the volume and price can be reasonably estimated and amounts due from customers are accrued in Accounts receivable, net in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, such receivable balances were $15.6 million and $34.5 million, respectively, as disclosed in Note 7 - Accounts Receivable.

The Company records any differences between its estimates and the actual amounts received for product sales in the month that payment is received from the purchaser. Historically, any identified differences between revenue estimates and actual revenue received have not been significant.

Transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations

For the Company’s product sales that have a contract term greater than one year, the Company has utilized the practical expedient in ASC Topic 606 which states the Company is not required to disclose the transaction price allocated to the remaining performance obligations if the variable consideration is allocated entirely to a wholly unsatisfied performance obligation. Under these sales contracts, monthly sales of a product generally represent a separate performance obligation; therefore, future commodity volumes to be delivered and sold are wholly unsatisfied and disclosure of the transaction price allocated to such unsatisfied performance obligations is not required.
