Allowable Supplements Discontinued for Gas Wells in Capacity Fields

The Railroad Commission will no longer be mailing most allowable supplement notices to operators and gatherers of gas wells in Capacity (100% AOF) Fields beginning immediately. The supplements that adjust allowables to cover production reported above the initial allowable will be eliminated. The elimination of these mailings will help to reduce Commission costs.

Gas well allowables in Capacity Fields are automatically increased when a well’s production is greater than the initially assigned allowable for a particular month. Because of this, there is no need to inform the operator and gatherer when the allowable is increased during the month. Eliminating this step of unnecessary supplements will result in simplification for industry and a reduction in regulatory paperwork.

If you have any questions about the elimination of these supplements for Capacity Gas Fields, please contact your gas proration analyst at 512-463-6838.
