By integrating project management, budgets and costs with your corporate financials from initial drilling through to production, upstream and midstream companies can more effectively invoice and pay partners, manage cost centers, control expenditures and drive efficient business processes.

EnergyCONNECT handles all aspects of JI, DOI, AFE and improved automation to core applications such as Enterprise Asset Management, Procurement and land systems. Our Joint Venture Accounting solution allows you to create flexible, date-effective divisions of interest and support account-based exceptions for joint venture transactions.

Revenue Accounting Software: EnergyCONNECT

Oil and gas requirements, specifically in the United States, make it challenging for energy companies to easily and accurately distribute revenue and deductions to various owners based on the associated division of interests. Leveraging a revenue distribution solution eases and automates this process to ensure accuracy.

EnergyCONNECT Revenue Accounting is the only oil and gas revenue distribution module that works seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics 365.  This scalable solution manages the revenue distribution process for upstream companies, including cash receipts, division of interests and owners’ interest.

From cash receipts to final settlement, our holistic Revenue Accounting solution helps to report revenue for various properties, record the ownership for the various products and deductions associated to the cost center and record the owner’s interest at a detail to support disbursements and required reporting.

From allowing you to better negotiate rental rates to providing feedback to vendors on equipment performance, this extension of Dynamics 365 helps you control the costs associated with renting industrial oilfield equipment.

Apply income and expenses to fixed assets for a full picture of the equipment rental value. Schedule asset movements and see your rental assets by location, usage and availability. Manage daily, weekly or hourly rates as well as utilization rates.

AFE Management Software: EnergyCONNECT

Authorization for Expenditure (AFE) management is usually a challenge for oil and gas companies. With EnergyCONNECT’s AFE Management solution, companies can setup and control capital expenditures by measuring actual against budgeted costs on both a gross and net basis.

EnergyCONNECT AFE allows you to easily manage the spending controls on purchase orders to ensure sufficient funds within the AFE before the PO is confirmed with the vendor. You can control costs and manage investor expectations by managing, communication and obtaining project budget approval before drilling begins or expenses are incurred.

Increase visibility and gain greater control over costs. Track and maintain the scope, estimate and schedule for AFE. Link one AFE to multiple cost centers. Integrate the solution with corporate budgets for an overview of finances and reporting. Automate workflows to simplify processes.

Solution Highlights

  • Track supplements or revisions to AFEs with approval tolerances and audit trails
  • Comprehensive reporting on budgets vs actuals
  • Improve the ability to create accurate capital budget forecasts
