"Training must get beyond how to
click through a system," she urges. "It
needs to walk through the scenarios people
encounter during their day-to-day tasks,
so they have the hands-on experience
with the system to feel comfortable using
it. If they do not, it will be easy for them
to revert to spreadsheets."
Outsourcing
According to Gerbel, many producers
prefer to outsource back-office functions
so they can focus on their core business
of finding and producing oil and gas.
"These companies range in size from private equity-backed startups that have just
made their first acquisition to established
firms with thousands of wells. Some outsource almost all back-office functions,
while others keep most tasks in house,"
she describes.
"Outsourcing can be a quick way for
a company to make the leap from spreadsheet-based processes," she says. "A reputable partner will already have systems
in place for most back-office functions,
including accounting, land and production,

as well as experience migrating producers'
data into those systems. It still takes time
to connect systems and tailor reports to
show data the way the client prefers to
see it, but that is much faster than a complete software implementation."
E.A.G.'s outsourcing arm has onboarded small companies in fewer than
30 days and larger ones in three months,
Gerbel illustrates. She adds that outsourcing sometimes saves costs.
"That is partly because outsourcing
firms have the scale to negotiate the
lowest-possible licensing fees for software," she explains. "However, the
bigger factor is staff utilization. Performing the back-office work associated
with 1,200 wells requires three or four
people that each perform separate functions. Those people are critical, but if
they only work for one company, often
they will be idle.
"Outsourcing firms can keep their experts busy throughout the month because
each one works for several clients," Gerbel
says. "Having said that, we build some
flex time into our schedules so we can

respond to unusual events that may cause
a spike in a company's workload, such
as an acquisition."

Golden Pass LNG Seeks
More Export Capacity

HOUSTON-Golden Pass LNG is seeking to increase the export capacity of its
liquefied natural gas terminal being built
in Sabine Pass, Tx. The company has requested the Federal Energy Regulation
Commission allow it to export 18.1 million
tonnes per annum from the facility now
licensed to move 15.6 MMTPA.
According to the Federal Register notice of the request, the proposed export
increase does not involve any equipment
changes or environmental permit adjustments, but would be achieved by production efficiencies.
Golden Pass began construction of the
three-train project in 2019, with the first
train scheduled to begin operations in 2024.
Golden Pass is owned by affiliates
of Exxon Mobil Corp. and Qatar Petroleum.
