W Energy Software, an upstream and midstream oil and gas SaaS ERP solutions company, has announced that Pinnacle Midstream II (Pinnacle) has signed software licenses for its Gas Gathering software module.
The announcement closely follows the commencement of Pinnacle’s Permian greenfield build as the startup service provider quickly reached for SaaS ERP to manage its first midstream assets in the Midland Basin. Top reasons for selecting W Energy Software include W Energy Software’s reputation for purpose-built oilfield gathering solutions, flexibility to manage either new or existing gathering systems, and scalability to match Pinnacle’s growth trajectory.
Headquartered in Houston, US, Pinnacle is a midstream service provider with an initial focus in the prolific Midland Basin. With a clear growth plan, Pinnacle set out to find the right digital solutions that enhance its initial midstream workflows and scale to match business needs. Rather than relying on spreadsheets or legacy software solutions, Pinnacle’s team wanted an ERP solution that combines purpose-built gathering capabilities with the benefits of modern software-as-a-service, including lower software licensing fees, seamless upgrades, and superior user experience. The service provider selected W Energy Software’s Gas Gathering solution, which provides essential capabilities to manage the build-out of gathering systems and ultimately allows the service provider to efficiently track transitions from wellhead confirmations through nomination cycles.
Reasons for selecting W Energy Software include:
- W Energy Software’s crude and gas gathering capabilities with Pinnacle staff’s prior experience made it the clear choice over legacy software providers.
- The ability to support greenfield or brownfield operations with essential tools to manage new gathering development and capabilities for mature systems, including fast and reliable allocations, reporting gross margin by meter, and other out-of-the-box features.
- Scalability of the W Energy Software platform to meet Pinnacle’s current business needs and manage increasingly complex gathering and future gas processing workflows at scale.
- The industry’s most comprehensive single platform, modern technology deployed in the cloud enables teams to reduce IT costs.
