Basis of Presentation Basis of PresentationOur unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Ranger Oil and all of our subsidiaries as of the relevant dates. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. A substantial noncontrolling interest in our subsidiaries is provided for in our condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss) as well as our condensed consolidated balance sheets as of and for the period ended September 30, 2021 (see Note 3 for additional detail including the basis of presentation of the noncontrolling interest). Our condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). Preparation of these statements involves the use of estimates and judgments where appropriate. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring accruals, considered necessary for a fair presentation of our condensed consolidated financial statements, have been included. Our condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year. Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period amounts to conform to the current period presentation. Such reclassifications did not have a material impact on prior period financial statements. As the Merger was completed after the quarterly period ended September 30, 2021, our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements exclude Lonestar’s financial information and operating results for all periods presented.

Fair Value Measurements
Non-Recurring Fair Value Measurements
In addition to the fair value measurements applied with respect to assets contributed in the Juniper Transactions, the most significant non-recurring fair value measurements utilized in the preparation of our condensed consolidated financial statements are those attributable to the initial determination of AROs associated with the ongoing development of new oil and gas properties and certain share-based compensation awards. The determination of the fair value of AROs is based upon regional market and facility specific information. The amount of an ARO and the costs capitalized represent the estimated future cost to satisfy the abandonment obligation using current prices that are escalated by an assumed inflation factor after discounting the future cost back to the date that the abandonment obligation was incurred using a rate commensurate with the risk, which approximates our cost of funds. Because these significant fair value inputs are typically not observable, we have categorized the initial estimates as Level 3 inputs.
