Houston, TX – 9 March 2009 – WellEz Information Management, a web-based oilfield reporting service, announced today a major version and infrastructure upgrade that enables integration between field reports and third party applications. WellEz collects and organizes information on all aspects of field operations, including drilling, completion, facilities, workover, and abandonment. This important upgrade will serve information from the field to accounting and technical applications, positioning the WellEz reporting service as an enterprise-wide source of information on operations.
This latest upgrade will enable WellEz customers to increase efficiency, reduce overhead expense, and shorten the time required to affect decisions. Two of the most important types of integration provided by this update are for cost accounting and technical calculations. Examples include,
· Comparing field cost estimates with AFE’s and final invoices
· Performing field studies and updating drilling calculations based on the most recent drilling performance data
Information originating from the WellEz service can also now be stored locally by the subscriber on their server using web-services.
"This upgrade positions WellEz as a conduit of information to the oil & gas enterprise, increasing the value of information provided by the WellEz reporting solution”, says Charles Jeffery, President of WellEz. “Through straightforward web services, our customers can leverage timely and accurate information from their field operations. Increasing efficiencies, reducing non-productive time, and reducing cost in our current economy are essential business drivers. It is also important to note that our customers experienced absolutely zero disruption to their reporting service, as the transition was made seamlessly overnight in a matter of a few hours.”
Since the WellEz reporting solution is offered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), customers are not required to install and support software licenses, and fees are charged on a consumption basis. Built on Microsoft’s .Net 3.5 platform, this upgrade also eliminates many of the required IT services historically required to integrate information between applications.
