This page provides an overview of the Subpart W deferred gas well completions and workovers source category e-GGRT reporting requirements.  Reporting is required for gas well completions with and without hydraulic fracturing, as applicable.

Please see Reporting Form Instructions on downloading the blank reporting form and uploading the completed reporting form.
You may also refer to Optional Calculation Spreadsheet Instructions to download the Subpart W calculation spreadsheet.

The well completions and workovers source category is applicable to Onshore Petroleum and Natural Gas Production.

Refer to Gas Well Completions and Workovers Instructions page for information regarding non-deferred data elements.

Gas Well Completions and Workovers: Deferred Reporting Requirements

For gas well completions and workovers with hydraulic fracturing, the facility must report the following for each sub-basin:

  • Indicate whether the only wells in the sub-basin are Wildcat or Delineation Wells that are subject to a 2-Year Delay in Reporting
    • If the 2-year delay indicator is yes, then no later than 2 years after the due date of the applicable annual report, report the API Well Number(s) for the Wildcat and/or Delineation well(s)
  • When using Equation W-10A
    • Measured flow rate of backflow during well completion (cubic feet per hour) (98.236(c)(6)(i)(B))
    • Measured flow rate of backflow during well workover (cubic feet per hour) (98.236(c)(6)(i)(D))
    • Total number of days of backflow from all wells during completions (98.236(c)(6)(i)(E))
    • Total number of days of backflow from all wells during workovers (98.236(c)(6)(i)(F))
  • For well completions that employed purposely designed equipment that separates natural gas from the backflow
    • The amount of gas recovered to sales using engineering estimate based on best available data (standard cubic feet) (98.236(c)(6)(i)(G))
  • For well workovers that employed purposely designed equipment that separates natural gas from the backflow
    • The amount of gas recovered to sales using engineering estimate based on best available data (standard cubic feet) (98.236(c)(6)(i)(H))

For gas well completions and workovers without hydraulic fracturing, the facility must report the following for each sub-basin:

  • Total count of completions in calendar year (98.236(c)(6)(ii)(A))
  • Total count of workovers in calendar year that flare gas or vent gas to the atmosphere (98.236(c)(6)(ii)(B))
