    What significance is it to miss on revenue,especially when the price of gas has been falling? I would think,for an investor or creditor, it's more important,in the case of this type of company, to know the physical volume of sales and production. Revenue would be of interest but is less under management's control as commodity prices are set by the market (I'm ignoring the effects of hedging here).
