(a)See Appendix A, Explanatory Note 1, for a discussion of data on
Nonhydrocarbon Gases Removed.

(b)Extraction loss is collected only on an annual basis. Monthly
extraction loss is estimated from monthly marketed production by
assuming that the preceding annual percentage remains constant for the
next twelve months.

(c)Equal to marketed production (wet) minus extraction loss.

(E)Estimated Data.

(RE)Revised Estimated Data.

(NA)Not Available.

Notes: Data for 1996 through 2000 are final. All other data are
preliminary unless otherwise indicated and contain estimates for
selected States (see Table 7). Estimates for the most recent two months
are derived from the Short-Term Integrated Forecasting System (STIFS).
Geographic coverage is the 50 States and the District of Columbia.
Totals may not equal sum of components because of independent rounding.
