|Deferred Revenue Disclosure [Abstract]
In March 2013, the Company assigned a portion of its contractual delivery obligations under two of its sales contracts to a natural resources trading company in exchange for a cash payment of $5.1 million. The remainder of the Company’s contractual delivery obligations under the two contracts remain in place as well as certain other performance obligations including scheduled deliveries of product sourced from approved locations which are covenants associated with the contracts. The Company reflects a portion of the payment as revenue when the related deliveries under the contracts are settled. As of December 31, 2013, the deliveries called for in 2013 had been made and the revenue thereon was recognized. As of June 30, 2014, one of the two remaining deliveries called for in 2014 had been made and the revenue thereon was recognized. The final required delivery has not been made as of June 30, 2014 and the revenue thereon remains deferred.
The entire disclosure for deferred revenues at the end of the reporting period, and description and amounts of significant changes that occurred during the reporting period. Deferred revenue is a liability as of the balance sheet date related to a revenue producing activity for which revenue has not yet been recognized. Generally, an entity records deferred revenue when it receives consideration from a customer before achieving certain criteria that must be met for revenue to be recognized in conformity with GAAP.
