PROJECT KICK-OFF ANNOUNCEMENT

HOUSTON, TX (June 2, 2020) Magnum Forge is pleased to announce the kick-off of an implementation of W Energy’s Upstream Oil & Gas ERP software for a Denver-based exploration and production company. Our client’s goals are to move to an updated software platform with significantly improved functionality and to redesign their business processes to improve productivity and streamline work efforts. Magnum Forge is managing the implementation and is responsible for all key aspects of the project, most importantly data conversion and process redesign. We look forward to a successful go-live early next year.

MAGNUM FORGE COMPLETES SUCCESSFUL SOFTWARE INTEGRATION FOR TWO LARGE HOUSTON-BASED E&P COMPANIES

HOUSTON, TX (May 4, 2020) Magnum Forge is proud to announce a successful and on-time go-live for an acquisition integration project the company ran recently.

The client, a long-time Permian operator, acquired another Permian operator of comparable size that also had wells in other Texas plays. While acquisition projects are normally a matter of transferring data from one system to another, the client decided to use the acquisition to move from their legacy ERP solution to the one used by the acquired company, making the project more of a full software implementation. Data from both companies was loaded to a new version of the acquired company’s system, which required detailed conversion validation and testing.

In addition, the client needed to change multiple business processes, including a move from two-stream to three-stream production accounting and a new marketing agreement for much of their gas production that required numerous changes to how transportation fees were held in the system. The consolidation of the companies also meant that accounting and land functions were consolidated from two sites each into a single site, requiring systems and process training. Magnum Forge was responsible for financial accounting, operations accounting, and land processes covered by the software as well as overall project management.

The timeline for the project was extremely tight, with only four months from the deal’s close date to the target go-live date, and Magnum Forge was proud to be able to lead the project to a high-quality and timely completion to help the client achieve one of the key goals of the acquisition—G&A savings.

Magnum Forge’s IT project sponsor commented, “An impressive accomplishment, [especially with] having to pivot to a 100% remote work environment right as we were going into the critical phases of the integration. My hat goes off to this team; you have exceeded my expectations, and for that I am truly grateful.”

NEW CLIENT ANNOUNCEMENT

TULSA, OK (December 19, 2019) Magnum Forge is excited to kick off an upgrade of P2’s ProCount software for an independent energy company headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma. ProCount is a hydrocarbon accounting system that handles simple and complex allocation requirements globally, onshore and offshore, and in conventional and unconventional plays.

The upgrade will enhance the efficiency of the client’s current processes by integrating more automation and using the software to allocate volumes currently handled in spreadsheets. This will provide not only more transparency to production engineers and production accountants but also stronger audit credibility.

Magnum Forge brings experienced consultants with deep expertise in the areas of volume allocation and revenue accounting to clients’ projects. By using Magnum Forge, our clients get both the software and the business experience needed to improve project quality and reduce project execution time. Our Oklahoma client will see time savings for both its lease operators and production accounting staff who currently enter data and run allocations manually.

REMEMBER 2015? YOUR PROBLEMS ARE STILL HERE.

HOUSTON, TX (November 16, 2019) Memo to the VP of IT: Remember 2015? You started down the path to replace your old 1980’s ERP system with something newer and better? Something that would minimize manual, out-of-system calculations and make reporting much easier? Then oil dropped to $30 a barrel and that idea was shut-in. Well, oil’s now holding strong and the problems you had in 2015 haven’t gone away. 2020 is the year to make the move to improve business processes across accounting and land, make reporting easier and more reliable, and cut out most of the spreadsheets you’re using that make your auditor gasp. Maybe you’ll even consider moving to a vendor-hosted ERP to reduce G&A costs.

At Magnum Forge, we live and breathe ERP systems for upstream oil and gas. We install, upgrade, and maximize our clients’ use of software every day and we can help you as well. We have current comparative evaluations of the leading systems and can help you decide which system is best for you. Or, if you know what you want and need a stalwart business partner to help, we have current implementation experience in all the leading systems. Let us get you back on schedule.

PRODUCTION ACCOUNTING SOFTWARE SHOULD MAKE YOU SMARTER. DOES YOURS?

HOUSTON, TX (August 10, 2019) Are you with an upstream exploration and production company that is struggling with well-level volume allocations, water movement tracking, downhole allocations across multiple regulatory zones, run ticket reconciliation, or field-to-allocation data integrity?

MAGNUM FORGE PROVIDES THE ASSIST; OUR CLIENT SCORES

HOUSTON, TX (April 3, 2019) Experience counts, and when a large, Houston-based, independent E&P company started aggressively acquiring properties during the downturn, the integration work began to surpass the capability of its internal staff. Aware of our expertise in asset integration, the company turned to Magnum Forge for the assist.

Magnum Forge loaded data from three large land acquisitions over a nine-month period. But the bigger assist came when we analyzed the GIS integration as part of the conversion. Our team identified inconsistencies in previous data loads and was asked to reload prior acquisitions to correct the errors. These corrections resulted in a faster and more complete data delivery and aligned the earlier acquisitions with the three land deals Magnum Forge had already loaded.

Through Magnum Forge’s extensive knowledge of the upstream industry and our focus on software applications used for accounting, volumes, land, and reserves, our client standardized its data across the multiple land deals, saving time and money for its accounting and land departments.

Magnum Forge has a recognized team of professionals focused on supporting upstream oil and gas organizations with asset acquisitions. We use best practices from our vast experience to help each client succeed. Let us introduce our services now so that when it’s time to make a change, you know who to call on for help.
