Revenue from Contract with Customer [Abstract]  
Revenue Recognition Revenue Recognition
Revenue from Contracts with Customers
The Company recognizes oil, natural gas, and NGL production revenue at the point in time when control of the product transfers to the purchaser, which differs depending on the applicable contractual terms. Transfer of control also drives the presentation of gathering, transportation and processing expenses in the consolidated statements of operations. See “Note 3 — Revenue Recognition” of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements in the 2022 Annual Report for more information regarding the types of contracts under which oil, natural gas, and NGL production revenue is generated.
Oil and Gas Purchase and Sale Arrangements
The Company proactively evaluates development plans and looks to enter into pipeline transportation contracts to mitigate market exposures and help ensure certainty of flow for its oil and gas production, in some cases multiple years in advance of development. Additionally, as the Company looks to optimize its operations and reduce exposures, in certain instances, the Company purchases oil and gas from third parties which is utilized to fulfill portions of its pipeline commitments. Sales of purchased oil and gas represent revenues the Company receives from sales of commodities purchased from a third-party. The Company recognizes these revenues and the purchase of the third-party commodities, as well as any costs associated with the purchase, on a gross basis, as the Company acts as a principal in these transactions by assuming control of the purchased commodity before it is transferred to the customer.
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, 2023 and December 31, 2022 of $153.4 million and $174.1 million, respectively, and are presented in “Accounts receivable, net” in the consolidated balance sheets.
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.
