Big data and analytics may be new terms for some of the industries, but the oil and gas sector has been dealing with them from a long time to make analytical decisions. Over the years, companies in this space have significantly invested in the latest tools and software to understand and utilize data. However, with the current commodity prices and the increasing gap between senior professionals and the next generation technologies hampering most of the oil and gas companies, their ability to be innovate has taken a hit. “Initially most of the legacy systems were DOS based with very limited functionality and flexibility. As available technology evolved, the need for oil and gas software to evolve was evident,” begins Vincent Dawkins, President, Enertia Software. With this gap, antiquated systems became the new challenge, as it didn’t appear to be familiar to the millennia.
Midland, TX, based Enertia Software is a software company that delivers integrated enterprise solutions for the upstream oil and gas industry. “Our Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and technology are designed to curb these challenges and provide streamlined operations through integrated data-driven applications,” states Dawkins. Enertia helps clients through cost-effective cloud-hosting solutions.
Enertia offers a fully integrated enterprise grade system that seamlessly provides meaningful data from the field to the financials that can be uniquely and individually tailored as well. By utilizing a Microsoft SQL Server, as the database for the software and Visual Basic .NET for the development of the user interface, Enertia delivers a platform that is familiar to all users. “This flexibility is the key in reducing learning and training time and allowing for faster data analysis for quick and accurate decision making,” states Dawkins.

The company also leverages Microsoft Upstream Reference Architecture as a key component for delivering flexibility and proactive efforts to reduce training and/or user downtime.
Enertia Software delivers best-in-class development, implementation, and business consulting services to its clients. “The formalization of a consulting division allows us to provide a greater level of specialized services to Enertia’s customers,” says Dawkins. “However, there is an entire eco-system of products that exist outside of Enertia that contribute to the picture, as a whole, for its clients,” he adds. Many of these products are built by third party companies and have indirect connection to Enertia. This ability to provide services, allows Enertia to provide an impact that is far-reaching in a client’s enterprise. Enertia’s consultants can provide rapid solutions that are more stable and cost-efficient than alternative firms.
The company invests over 30 percent of its capital into R&D efforts each year. “Some projects are in partnership with our users, which helps to ensure we are not just working to develop but creating collaborative design,” asserts Dawkins. The company combines its development efforts to better streamline the workflows and enhance the user experience using web interfaces and mobile devices. Enertia differentiates itself with its continuous desire to evolve and provide a better solution for users. “Our focus has always been to deliver comprehensive solutions to complex business processes,” he adds.
With an industry presence of three decades, Enertia plans to develop premium software solutions that would allow oil and gas companies to streamline data analysis, enhance workflow processes, and increase efficiency for improved business intelligence. The company will continue to lead the upstream oil and gas industry as the only single-vendor integrated solution with the industry expertise to meet unique client needs.
