2 Marketed production includes gross withdrawals from reservoirs less quantities used for reservoir repressuring and quantities vented or flared. For 1980 and thereafter, it excludes the nonhydrocarbon gases subsequently removed.
3 Volumetric reduction in natural gas resulting from the extraction of natural gas constitutents at natural gas processing plants.
4 Includes imports of liquefied natural gas.

* Definitions

Natural Gas: A mixture of hydrocarbons (principally methane) and small quantities of various nonhydrocarbons existing in the gaseous phase or in solution with crude oil in underground reservoirs.

Natural Gas, Dry: The marketable portion of natural gas production, which is obtained by subtracting extraction losses, including natural gas liquids removed at natural gas processing plants, from total production. Natural Gas Gross Withdrawals: Full well stream volume of pro- duced natural gas, excluding condensate separated at the lease.

Natural Gas Marketed Production: Gross withdrawals of natural gas from production reservoirs, less gas used for reservoir repressur- ing; nonhydrocarbon gases removed in treating and processing operations; and quantities vented and flared.

Proved Reserves, Crude Oil: The estimated quantities of all liquids defined as crude oil that geological and engineering data demonstrate with reasonable certainty to be recoverable in future years from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions.

Extraction Loss: The reduction in volume of natural gas due to the removal of natural gas constituents, such as ethane, propane, and bu- tane, at natural gas processing plants.
