Fair Values – Recurring
As required, financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. The Partnership’s assessment of the significance of a particular input requires judgment and may affect the valuation of fair value assets and liabilities and their placement within the fair value hierarchy levels.
The following table presents information about the Partnership’s recurring assets and liabilities measured at fair value as of September 30, 2022:
The following table presents information about the Partnership’s recurring liabilities measured at fair value as of December 31, 2021:
The following table provides the fair value of financial instruments that are not recorded at fair value in the condensed combined balance sheets:
The recorded value of the revolving credit facility approximates its fair value because of its floating rate structure based on the Prime Rate spread. The fair value measurement for the revolving credit facility represents Level 2 inputs.
Fair Values - Non Recurring
The fair value measurements of asset retirement obligations are measured on a nonrecurring basis when a well is drilled or acquired or when production equipment and facilities are installed or acquired using a discounted cash flow model based on inputs that are not observable in the market and therefore represent Level 3 inputs. Significant inputs to the fair value measurement of asset retirement obligations include estimates of the costs of plugging and abandoning oil and natural gas wells, removing production equipment and facilities and restoring the surface of the land as well as estimates of the economic lives of the oil and natural gas wells and future inflation rates. Asset retirement obligations incurred and acquired during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 were approximately $633 thousand.
