(17) Segment Information

See Note 2(h) to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for a description of the Company’s determination of its reportable segments.  Revenues from gathering and processing and water handling and treatment operations were primarily derived from intersegment transactions for services provided to the Company’s exploration and production operations prior to the closing of the Transactions.  Through March 12, 2019, the results of Antero Midstream Partners were included in the consolidated financial statements of Antero.  Effective March 13, 2019, the results of Antero Midstream Partners are no longer consolidated in Antero’s result; however, the Company’s segment disclosures include the results of our unconsolidated affiliates due to their significance to the Company’s operations.  See Note 3 to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for further discussion on the Transactions.  Marketing revenues are primarily derived from activities to purchase and sell third-party natural gas and NGLs and to market excess firm transportation capacity to third parties.

Operating segments are evaluated based on their contribution to consolidated results, which is primarily determined by the respective operating income of each segment.  General and administrative expenses were allocated to the gathering and processing and water handling and treatment segments based on the nature of the expenses and on a combination of the segments’ proportionate share of the Company’s consolidated property and equipment, capital expenditures, and labor costs, as applicable.  General and administrative expenses related to the marketing segment are not allocated because they are immaterial.  Other income, income taxes, and interest expense are primarily managed and evaluated on a consolidated basis.  Intersegment sales were transacted at prices which approximate market.  Accounting policies for each segment are the same as the Company’s accounting policies described in Note 2 to the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

The operating results and assets of the Company’s reportable segments were as follows for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2019 (in thousands):
