Abstract: The unaccounted-for figure can be either a positive number (more gas was purchased than sold) or a negative number (more gas was sold than purchased). In either case, it is important to determine what factors are contributing to the unaccounted-for gas and eliminate them. The reasons are economics and safety. Economically, unaccounted-for gas represents lost revenues that are not recoverable. It is gas purchased from a supplier but not sold to a customer (positive unaccounted-for gas). The other reason that we are interested in unaccounted-for gas is public safety. Leakage, third party damage and gas theft contribute to unaccounted-for gas that can effect the safety of our customers.
