It is vitally important that fuel gas sold off lease is reported and billed out as a sale where there is a difference in the working interests between the fuel gas providers and users. Because this is a relatively uncommon event, it is often overlooked, however it is valuable to identify such events as they present a substantial revenue opportunity
How FacilityStudio provides value
The initial Petrinex load into FacilityStudio displays any Gas movement to third party facilities where fuel gas is being reported as moving to the third party facilities.
Companies should conduct a thorough review of your measurement schematics to identify lack of a proper third-‐party facility for any fuel gas movement outside of the well it was produced. This could be costing a company thousands of dollars per month because they are giving away free fuel gas.
The example below shows fuel gas going from the 3-‐14 well to Fred Oil’s 9-‐10; however, the Fred Oil Battery isn’t represented in the measurement schematic. This needs to be looked into further.
In contrast, the fuel gas moving from the 8-‐15 well to 13-‐32 is being reported in Petrinex, which is why the AB BT 0122236 facility appears in the measurement schematic. Hopefully an invoice to ABC for the fuel gas is also being issued.
