Presentation Description:

Have you ever wondered how the liquid yield data is used in col 3 on your gas analysis reports? Do you ever wish you had more information to back up your production engineer’s claim that your company is being ripped off in their liquids recoveries?  Do you wish you could check that your allocated plant liquids are in the correct ballpark?

This lunch and learn is all about using the liquid yields provided on an analysis report combined with typical plant recoveries to determine a good ballpark estimate of the NGL volumes you should be receiving from your non-op GP operators.

Once you have the ballpark volumes, you then have intelligent data from which you can have meaningful discussions with your engineers and the plant operators.

Al will walk through the why Engineer and PA’s view allocations differently, where to get the data and how to use it to ballpark your volumes. Attendees will be provided a link to a worksheet that contains the calculations.
