Quorum Software, the leader in digital transformation for the oil and gas industry, has announced that XcL Midstream, LLC (XcL), a growth-oriented natural gas midstream company, has selected Quorum’s integrated suite of midstream solutions to manage XcL’s gathering, transportation, condensate stabilisation, processing and water business.
XcL owns and operates an extensive midstream system with delivery and interconnect points for up to eight interstate pipelines and two processing and fractionation facilities. As a small team that manages all scheduling, accounting, planning, contracting, gas control, measurement and SCADA, XcL required a partner to deliver an efficient, automated and integrated process to improve the business. “With myQuorum TIPS, we have cut our invoice processing time in half, and we are generating invoices five days sooner,” said Ryan Kerr, Director of Midstream Services at XcL. “Quorum has eliminated many of our manual processes and allows us to have more data at our fingertips, provide more competitive rates, and pass our cost savings back to our customers.”
As XcL’s throughput neared one billion ft3/d of lean and rich gas, the company added Quorum’s FLOWCAL measurement solution to support its accelerated growth. “FLOWCAL is the premier measurement application for gas and liquids, and we see a lot of synergies with myQuorum TIPS that make our nominations and scheduling process easier,” explained Kerr. “I think of FLOWCAL like a cash register. If our measurement is off by one or two percent, we’re taking away from our cash register. FLOWCAL ensures that our metrics are accurate and correct when every penny counts.”
In addition to a strong technology foundation, Quorum’s cloud platform and professional services team was critical to XcL’s success. “I was impressed with how the Quorum services team understood our business and rapidly deployed our solution in the cloud, despite working remotely,” said Kerr. “With our focus on cost savings, it’s been beneficial to take advantage of Quorum’s hosting environment to eliminate any upfront costs with servers and IT support staff.”
XcL has seen the following benefits as part of leveraging Quorum’s gas gathering, processing and measurement solutions:
- Data Integration: Streamlined business processes for producers, marketers and schedulers with reduced processing time and greater data accuracy.
- Automated Functionality: Increased efficiency and automation of contracts, inventory management, gas settlement and invoicing.
- Trusted Measurement Data: All-in-one solution with centralised measurement data, a clear audit trail, and the ability to track lost and unaccounted for gas.
