Gas/Oil Ratio

No flowing and/or gas-lift oil wells shall be permitted to produce with excessive gas/oil ratio, except where special orders are operative. Wells that are gas/lifted with gas from gas wells shall be prorated in the same manner as are hi-ratio naturally flowing oil wells, the G.O.R. being defined for this purpose as the total output gas less the total input gas divided by the number of barrels of oil produced. The uneconomic or unreasonable use of gas for gas-lift will not be permitted.
