RCC = the regulatory cost charge;
V op = the total volume of oil and gas produced from, and oil, gas, water, and other fluids injected into, during the most recently concluded calendar year, wells for which a Permit to Drill has been issued under AS 31.05.090 , of which the person is the operator on the first day of the fiscal year, and that have not before that day been plugged and abandoned and reported as abandoned in accordance with this chapter;
V TOT = the total volume of oil and gas produced from, and oil, gas, water, and other fluids injected into, during the most recently concluded calendar year, all wells for which a Permit to Drill has been issued under AS 31.05.090 and that have not before the first day of the fiscal year been plugged and abandoned and reported as abandoned in accordance with this chapter;
A = the appropriation, other than from federal receipts, made for the operating costs of the commission for the fiscal year;
F = the commission's reasonable estimate of the total fees to be collected under AS 31.05.090 during the fiscal year;
L = the lapsed amount of a previous appropriation that is appropriated for the fiscal year under AS 31.05.093 (d).
(b) For purposes of calculating regulatory cost charges, volumes of fluids produced from or injected into wells consist of the applicable volumes reported to the commission under 20 AAC 25.230(b) and 20 AAC 25.432, except that
(1) if an operator has failed to report a volume as required, if two or more reported volumes are inconsistent, or if the commission determines that a reported volume is otherwise unreliable, the commission will, in its discretion, calculate or estimate volumes as it considers appropriate;
(c) For purposes of AS 31.05.093 (a) and this chapter, a well is considered plugged and abandoned and reported as abandoned in accordance with this chapter if the well has been abandoned in accordance with 20 AAC 25.105 and 20 AAC 25.112 and a complete well record for the well, including a description of plugging operations, on a Well Completion or Recompletion Report and Log (Form 10-407) as required by 20 AAC 25.070(3) has been filed with the commission after abandonment.
