4. Fair Value Measurements of Financial Instruments
Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis
Commodity derivative contracts reflected in the unaudited interim condensed consolidated balance sheets are recorded at estimated fair value. At September 30, 2018, all of the Company’s commodity derivative contracts were with four bank counterparties and were classified as Level 2 in the fair value input hierarchy. The fair value of the Company’s commodity derivatives are determined using industry-standard models that consider various assumptions including current market and contractual prices for the underlying instruments, implied volatility, time value, nonperformance risk, as well as other relevant economic measures. Substantially all of these inputs are observable in the marketplace throughout the full term of the instrument and can be supported by observable data.
Derivative instruments listed below are presented gross and include swaps and collars that are carried at fair value. The Company records the net change in the fair value of these positions in gains (losses) on commodity derivative contracts — net in the Company’s unaudited interim condensed consolidated statements of operations.
