Scott Stedman, SVP - Acquisition & Divestitures

Novataris has delivered a data & analytics platform and an advanced land planning application for Steward Energy

Novataris designed and built a data platform that gathers data from: IHS FieldDirect (operations), Frac sheets, P2 Bolo (finance), Type curves, Surveys and Forecast data.

The data platform is organized as a data hub where sources are tied together through wells, dates, property and more. The platform provides users easy access to navigate and explore data, see patterns and trends across data sources.

Novataris also built a master data application for Steward Energy to manage core data about their business and increase overall quality of data about wells. This provided a means to register valuable data such as e.g. API, locations and lateral length which is not always accurately or consistently captured in other source systems.

Novataris developed a data analytics solution using Power BI to provide interactive dashboards that provided the ability for Steward to gain a quick overview of all operations and quickly “drill down” to individual details of a single well (e.g. GOR, PIP, BOPD) and compare 2 wells against each other.

Finally, Novataris and Steward Energy, in collaboration, designed a land planning application using data automatically integrated from iLandman and the drilling schedule to combine and create an application that, in real-time, can provide an overview of leases that will expire, calculate mineral interest loss of acres on individual contracts. Steward Energy can make schedule changes on the fly and see the consequences in terms of lease obligations immediately. The application contains a complex rules engine to handle lease obligations and can even handle continuous drilling clauses (CDCs).
