Single-Well Battery Data Entry

In Energy Corridor, single-well battery data entry has been simplified.

To set an operated battery to be a single-well battery on the battery master, check the single-well battery flag. A single-well is then linked to this battery.

Monthly data for the single-well battery is one screen consisting of inventories and dispositions for oil and water, gas data, and the well hours. The forced battery production is also the well production data.

As an illustration, let’s enter a closing inventory of 54.3 for oil and 14.5 for water, then 700 for the well hours. In the Disposition section, we create a disposition to Pembina of 172.8 cubic meters for oil sales and 10.0 cubic meters for water.

In this example, gas production is calculated using a gas-oil ratio (GOR) that is vented. We save the data, then click the calculator. The forced production for oil and water is calculated and appears on the screen. Note the 186.1 cubic metres for oil and 24.5 cubic metres for water. The calculated gas production appears in the gas production text box. These volumes will appear in the Petrinex Volumetric report at the well level.

Let’s go to the volume reports tab to view the report. I’ll select the Petrinex Volumetric report, then push the Load Report button. The production hours and volumes, the Alberta Crown royalty volumes, as well as the vent volume appear.

Navigating Production Accounting

Most of what you need on a monthly basis to do production accounting can be done in one dialog. You can view or edit your masters, enter monthly volume and revenue data, and run reports.

Production Accounting in Energy Corridor

On the top left is the list of field schemas. Schemas are used to organize your areas based on field data or financial cost center hierarchy.

When clicking on a field schema, the corresponding facilities and wells can be seen below the schema. Expanding a well will show royalties linked to the well. The toolbar above allows you to add new or existing facilities, wells, or royalties to your field schema, or to create a new schema.

Energy Corridor production accounting — facilities and wells

If you click on the well’s node, a grid will appear with all wells linked to the battery. This allows you to enter all well data on one screen and see the well totals. No more having to go into each individual well.

When clicking on a facility in your field schema, you can see the required data entry, including inventories, gas consumption data and dispositions. Receipts are auto-populated from your sending disposition.

Once you have completed your data input, save and calculate the facility. Upon doing that, you can go to the Volume Reports tab to view and export the available reports. All reports can be exported to Excel for viewing and editing, and all Petrinex reports can be exported to an XML file to be directly loaded into Petrinex. Revenue is entered by purchaser, and you can enter gross or net data along with deductions.

After calculating the revenue, a voucher is generated and made available on the Rev/Royalty Reports tab. If you are also using the Energy Corridor financial accounting system, you can submit the voucher by running the interface. There’s no need to export the voucher and send it as a separate operation.

Production accounting doesn’t have to be complicated. With Energy Corridor, you can perform all your monthly production accounting tasks in one dialog.
