Commingling―the combination of gas and/or liquid hydrocarbon production before sales from two or more leases and/or units, subject to the following:
- combination of lease production with production from a unit which is wholly contained geographically within that lease is not considered commingling;
- no additional commingling approval is required for a unit if approval to commingle at the same commingling facility has previously been independently granted covering all leases contributing to the subject unit;
- once commingling approval for a unit has been granted, no additional commingling approval is required if interests in a unit change or the unit is revised if no new leases are added as a result of the change or unit revision.
