2 * Net bbls take the temperature and API (gravity) of the oil into consideration, while bbls (which is gross bbls) does not.
3 ** EITI data is in net bbls since both products can be liquefied. In order to compare this data to the independent source gas data, I converted the EITI data into m3. For this conversion I had to assume that net bbl data = barrel of Oil Equivalent (BOE) measurement. Original data in the notes section of the gas production tab.
   EITI report failed to provide this commodity-specific data.
