Summary of Significant Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Use of Estimates [Policy Text Block]

Use of Estimates

 

Preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities that exist at the date of the Partnership's financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenues and costs and expenses during the reporting periods. The Partnership's financial statements are based on a number of significant estimates, including the revenue and expense accruals, depletion, asset impairments, fair value of derivative instruments and the probability of forecasted transactions. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

The natural gas industry principally conducts its business by processing actual transactions as much as 60 days after the month of delivery. Consequently, the most recent two months' financial results were recorded using estimated volumes and contract market prices. Differences between estimated and actual amounts are recorded in the following months' financial results. Management believes that the operating results presented for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 represent actual results in all material respects (see "Revenue Recognition" accounting policy for further description).

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Possible Losses [Policy Text Block]

 

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Possible Losses

 

In evaluating the need for an allowance for possible losses, the MGP performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and adjusts credit limits based upon payment history and the customers' current creditworthiness as determined by review of its customers' credit information. Credit is extended on an unsecured basis to many of its energy customers. At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the MGP's credit evaluation indicated that the Partnership had no need for an allowance for possible losses.

Working Interest [Policy Text Block]

 

Working Interest

 

The Partnership Agreement establishes that revenues and expenses will be allocated to the MGP and limited partners based on their ratio of capital contributions to total contributions ("working interest"). The MGP is also provided an additional working interest of 10% as provided in the Partnership Agreement. Due to the time necessary to complete drilling operations and accumulate all drilling costs, estimated working interest percentage ownership rates are utilized to allocate revenues and expenses until the wells are completely drilled and turned on-line into production. Once the wells are completed, the final working interest ownership of the partners is determined and any previously allocated revenues and expenses based on the estimated working interest percentage ownership are adjusted to conform to the final working interest percentage ownership.

Revenue Recognition [Policy Text Block]

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Partnership generally sells natural gas and crude oil at prevailing market prices. Generally, the Partnership's sales contracts are based on pricing provisions that are tied to a market index, with certain fixed adjustments based on proximity to gathering and transmission lines and the quality of its natural gas. On average, the market index is fixed two business days prior to the commencement of the production month. Revenue and the related accounts receivable are recognized when produced quantities are delivered to a custody transfer point, persuasive evidence of a sales arrangement exists, the rights and responsibility of ownership pass to the purchaser upon delivery, collection of revenue from the sale is reasonably assured and the sales price is fixed or determinable. Revenues from the production of natural gas and crude oil, in which the Partnership has an interest with other producers, are recognized on the basis of its percentage ownership of working interest and/or overriding royalty.

 

The Partnership accrues unbilled revenue due to timing differences between the delivery of natural gas, NGL's, crude oil and condensate and the receipt of a delivery statement. These revenues are recorded based upon volumetric data from the Partnership's records and management estimates of the related commodity sales and transportation and compression fees which are, in turn, based upon applicable product prices (see "Use of Estimates" accounting policy for further description). The Partnership had unbilled revenues at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 of $4,180,900 and $1,403,100, respectively, which were included in accounts receivable trade-affiliate within the Partnership's balance sheets.
