    Why outsource?

    Do what you know best and outsource the rest to our qualified specialists. We have helped our clients through the booms and the busts.

    • Cost savings: Reduce cost by employing partial employees versus full time hires. Reduce overhead such as office space, paid leave or benefits.
    • Labor flexibility and focus on core activity: Increase or decrease personnel depending on your needs. It is our responsibility to hire, train and manage to free you up to focus on your core business.
    • Best practices: We have processes in place that are proven and tested. We will work with you to review and customize implementation details to best suit your needs.
    • Tighter controls: Internal departments and personnel evolve over time and can frequently grow out of control. We have checks and balances for processes such as check writing, division of interest (DOI) maintenance and general ledger (GL) maintenance.
    • Quick start up: You can access your oil and gas accounting software the day you sign. We will cut checks and run joint interest billings (JIBs) within days of start up.
    In the current climate, controlling cost and delivering actionable data for both managing production and assessing partnership or transaction options is critical to managing your upstream business. Our oil and gas outsourcing solutions can reduce G&A expenses from 20-50% by leveraging partial FTE experienced resources, systems and automation, combined with less costly but highly trained offshore data entry personnel.
