|Revenue from Contract with Customer [Abstract]|
|Revenue Recognition||Revenue Recognition
Revenue from contracts with customers
Under the Company’s oil sales contracts it sells oil production at the point of delivery and collects an agreed upon index price, net of pricing differentials. The Company recognizes revenue when control transfers to the purchaser at the point of delivery at the net price received.
Natural gas sales
Effective January 1, 2020, certain of our natural gas processing agreements were modified to allow the Company to take title to NGLs resulting from the processing of our natural gas. As a result, sales and reserve volumes, prices, and revenues for NGLs and natural gas are presented separately for periods subsequent to January 1, 2020. For periods prior to January 1, 2020, except for sales and reserve volumes, prices, and revenues specifically associated with Carrizo, sales and reserve volumes, prices, and revenues for NGLs were presented with natural gas.
Under the Company’s natural gas sales processing contracts, it delivers natural gas to a midstream processing entity which gathers and processes the natural gas and remits proceeds to the Company for the resulting sale of NGLs and residue gas. We evaluate whether the processing entity is the principal or the agent in the transaction for each of our natural gas processing agreements and have concluded that we maintain control through processing or we have the right to take residue gas and/or NGLs in-kind at the tailgate of the midstream entity’s processing plant and subsequently market the product. We recognize revenue when control transfers to the purchaser at the delivery point based on the contractual index price received.
Contractual fees associated with gathering, processing, treating and compression, as well as any transportation fees incurred to deliver the product to the purchaser, for the majority of the Company’s natural gas processing agreements were previously recorded as a reduction of revenue. As a result of the modifications to certain of the Company’s natural gas processing agreements, as well as the natural gas processing agreements assumed in the Carrizo Acquisition, the Company now recognizes revenue for natural gas and NGLs on a gross basis with gathering, transportation and processing fees recognized separately as “Gathering, transportation and processing” in its consolidated statements of operations as the Company maintains control throughout processing. These changes impact the comparability of 2020 with prior periods. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, $2.4 million of gathering, transportation, and processing fees were recognized as a reduction to natural gas revenues in the consolidated statement of operations.
Accounts receivable from revenues from contracts with customers
Net accounts receivable include amounts billed and currently due from revenues from contracts with customers of our oil and natural gas production, which had a balance at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019 of $66.2 million and $165.3 million, respectively, are presented in “Accounts receivable, net” in the consolidated balance sheets.
Transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations
For the Company’s product sales that have a contract term greater than one year, it utilized the practical expedient in ASC 606, which states the Company is not required to disclose the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations if the variable consideration is allocated entirely to a wholly unsatisfied performance obligation. Under these sales contracts, each unit of product generally represents a separate performance obligation, therefore, future volumes are wholly unsatisfied and disclosure of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations is not required.
Prior period performance obligations
The Company records revenue in the month production is delivered to the purchaser. However, settlement statements for sales may not be received for 30 to 90 days after the date production is delivered, and as a result, the Company is required to estimate the amount of production delivered to the purchaser and the price that will be received for the sale of the product. The Company records the differences between estimates and the actual amounts received for product sales in the month that payment is received from the purchaser. The Company has existing internal controls for its revenue estimation process and related accruals, and any identified differences between its revenue estimates and actual revenue received historically have not been significant.
The entire disclosure of revenue from contract with customer to transfer good or service and to transfer nonfinancial asset. Includes, but is not limited to, disaggregation of revenue, credit loss recognized from contract with customer, judgment and change in judgment related to contract with customer, and asset recognized from cost incurred to obtain or fulfill contract with customer. Excludes insurance and lease contracts.
