Oil & Gas Producer Streamlines Internal Risk-Management Process by Implementing AEGIS’ CTRM Platform
MARKETS: ENERGY | COMMODITY: OIL & GAS | CLIENT: E&P PRODUCER

Situation

An oil and gas producer had a long-standing practice of storing, valuing, and settling its financial hedges using spreadsheets. The embedded links within the spreadsheets, combined with tracking and versioning issues, led to a time-intensive and disjointed process that struggled to meet the company’s increasing financial control and audit requirements.

The company’s goals of implementing more robust financial controls and enhanced compliance and reporting efficiency led its risk management team to search for an enterprise software solution to replace its current internal processes.

Outcome

The oil & gas producer is now using the full functionality of the AEGIS platform. The company’s internal team has retired its reliance on spreadsheets, gained additional insight into its data, and simplified management reporting.

In addition, the team has recognized significant efficiencies and is progressing through audits without any issues. All in all, the company has greater visibility into its hedge data and market insights, which has better positioned the company to manage market fluctuations, as well as identify potential risks and opportunities.

 

“The AEGIS software platform enhances our risk management, valuation, reporting, and audit needs for our financial-hedging activity. We feel that AEGIS has built an excellent platform on a modern architecture that allows us to simplify our internal processes.”
