Essential features for oil and gas production accounting

EnergySys and efficient production accounting

Efficient oil and gas production accounting is key to moving businesses forward within the oil and gas industry. Traditional production accounting systems are frequently a source of business inefficiencies. Increased expense, lost time, lost opportunities, and delays in availability of data for senior management are a few common issues we’ve seen over the years. 
 
Switching to a modern production accounting can reduce these inefficiencies and increase business performance. For example, effective management of deferments can mean a significant increase in revenue for a production company.  

When looking to increase efficiencies within your business, here’s a list of some of the key features that your oil and gas production accounting software should be providing. 

The features

Your system should be 100% configurable. All without needing to programme calculations or functionality directly into the software. You should be able to build an application to suit your assets and agreements, and update and modify this as your operation evolves. 

Transparency 
There should be no frustrating data black boxes. In EnergySys, downloadable Excel calculation logs make it easier than ever to identify and fix anomalies. A complete audit trail and version history should be readily available whenever you need it.

They mean that your reporting is more flexible, offers more effective data sharing, and more choice. You should be able to work in your choice of reporting environment using your own templates. Analytics shouldn’t be a costly add-on; it should be open data combined with your preferred tool.
