|Subsequent Events [Abstract]|
In July and August 2017, the Company entered into fixed price swaps for 2017 for approximately 66,000 MMBtu of natural gas per day at a weighted average price of $3.08 per MMBtu. For 2018, the Company entered into fixed price swaps for approximately 105,000 MMBtu of natural gas per day at a weighted average price of $2.94 per MMBtu. The Company’s fixed price swap contracts are tied to the commodity prices on NYMEX. The Company will receive the fixed price amount stated in the contract and pay to its counterparty the current market price as listed on NYMEX for natural gas. In July and August 2017, the Company sold call options for 2019 for approximately 50,000 MMBtu of natural gas per day at a weighted average price of $3.04 per MMBtu. Each short call option has an established ceiling price. When the referenced settlement price is above the price ceiling established by these short call options, the Company pays its counterparty an amount equal to the difference between the referenced settlement price and the price ceiling multiplied by the hedged contract volumes.
