Get Your Energy Data Research Done06/01/2022
Below is our webinar review of what Rextag is. Being a division of Hart Energy, Rextag is aimed at providing data services. You should be already familiar with Hart Energy conferences and publications about oil and gas basins, etc.
What we want to show are the use cases of our clients, what our product is, how it is used, what data services are there, and some of the key scenarios, that our customers shared with us. We licence the data by datasets (the ones you see on the left pane within the Energy DataLink application. Our customers can licence access to the data based on the folders (or modules) here. e.g. Upstream oil and gas, and other modules below.
So if you are an operator who works on Upstream or Midstream assets or you are interested in them you would licence both the Upstream dataset and respective midstream datasets. They are delivered to the customers in different ways. If you are familiar with GIS databases or SQL you can consume the data in those forms or set up web services connection to your cloud database.
If you do not need to save the raw data on your computer, you can access our web application that you now see in the video.
If you are a software developer or a product developer within your organisation you can use this information via API access to embed it inside your application. Also, we licence the data for an unlimited number of users for this application.
First of all, we would like to talk about the use of key scenarios provided for customers.
When we are looking at the whole energy supply chain, it is worth noting that Rextag covers it all, from Upstream well-production and completion to the infrastructure that is attached to those wells.
We also cover gathering systems, compressor stations and processing plans. Then we go down to the infrastructure for transportation, including pipelines, to downstream, i.e. refineries, refined pipelines, also including power generation, and all electrical infrastructural.
As you can imagine the key usage scenarios depend on what kind of customer you are. So if you are an Upstream oil and gas, an E&P company, the key scenarios could be
- looking for what is the production of a particular well,
- for production trends,
- looking at opportunities that might be for acquisitions or new field development.
On the other hand, if you are a midstream company or one of the vendors or you are from a consulting company, or somebody who does services for the midstream and infrastructure, you can use this application for the business-development purposes
- filter by pipelines
- their types
- get additional information about these pipelines
- see some of our customers in the midstream industry.
Being a midstream company, you know where your assets are, but we are here to tell you where some of your competitors are. For example, we license the data for about 90 per cent of major midstream companies in the US.
Ths data we use for making pipeline analysis and looking at where the pipelines are, where their potential acquisitions are, or empty connections that can be used to bring the product to market and where it is currently located.
Looking downstream, some companies and renewable energy industry companies look at our application, where the electrical infrastructure is, the location and perhaps the potential to locate new infrastructure for power generations. Through some functionalities within the application, many of our customers generate strong value out of it.
I will walk you through some examples. I will be rushing through this demonstration and showing as many key scenarios as I can.
As I mentioned before, we licence the databases by the datasets, which are analogous to the folder structure on the left panel.
Together with that, you have access to all the auxiliary datasets you see below here. If you want to get parcel data or any common interest data, PLSS, TX survey data or even weather services, all those things are included in any licence.
We have the largest document library, consisting of more than 5 million investment presentations and annual reports. All of these are accessible to you. You also have A&D transactions data, as we keep track of what activity is going on in the market, the merges, and the acquisition.
Another service is access to the Corporate Entities database. There is a lot of information on financial statements, public trades with companies, what assets they own, etc.
Speaking about the Directory, if you are a business developer or services company it can be used for lead generation. We have over 300,000 contacts including telephone numbers and emails, operators in this industry. That’s the information that you licence in addition to the datasets that you pay for.
Let’s take a look at one example here. We will look at the Upstream first. If you are licensing data for Upstream, you can turn on wells, directionals, and acreage positions.
We start with wells and we will look at some examples here in West Texas, in the Wolfcamp Basin.
Showing all the wells in North America is not very useful until we narrow down our search. On the Querying and Filtering panel, I can add different filtering rules to the wells. In this key scenario, I will look at a producing formation, which contains the word «Wolfcamp». here could be a different number of queries or combinations of rules.
The first step is to show the wells within my filter, in this case, Chevron has the top 6 wells at Wolfcamp Basin. If you are looking at the Production by Operators this is going to be based on whatever my filters were and this is showing me who is the top operator in the Wolfcamp. This is sorted by BOE but I can change it to sort things by other columns. If I had a very quick query that I needed to run - “what are the top operators in this basin or this field” - I could do it in less than a minute. Set up the filter and download a tab that gives me this. Any kind of information in our application whether you see a table, or a chart, just know there is a button “download” next to it to extract it. The map also gets updated showing you where the Wolfcamp’s wells are.
By default, we have colour-coding based on what well is predominantly producing. A green well will be predominantly producing oil, a red well will be producing gas. I can change styles and this applies to not only the wells but any the other pipelines or facilities. You can change the style by different predefined ones, so one is the style based on production so it takes a look at where is historical production of the past 12 months for wells, it gives a bubble map. So it helps to track down areas focusing on what we want to do.
I can also do quite a few reports based on wells I have queried. If I click here on “Decline Curve” icon, that is going to give me what is the typical decline for a well that has been drilled and produced at the Wolfcamp. That also can be a decline in production by a particular operator and the colony. All this information in the table is dynamic, I can turn on and off different things on whatever I’m trying to focus on. All this info is downloadable and extractable to take out go the application and put into Excel or other data applications.
I am now analysing the production report. The app takes all my wells within this area and creates a production report. I can see a monthly and daily production where I can turn different things “on” and “off”., For example, I can add water, producing wells count numbers, and change any scales. There are also plenty of capabilities for charting and exporting the data outside the app.
You also have production by the operator for different periods. You can look at the decline curve for the past 5 years and what is the total production by the operator. There are also charts by Formation, Status, and County with the same mechanics applied. You also have the ability to export the information in different formats CSV, PDF, Petra, PhDWin and Geographix to import into the other software to do more analysis.
The last report I share is the completion report. This is going to give us statistics for wells by formation, status, operators, and trajectory. You can see the completions over time for wells in the group that we created. We can look at permits that we have in the file by month or by year. We can see who is doing the most completions within this group of wells (here it is EOG predominantly). We can see companies that do the most of all completions for the Wolfcamp wells and the same can be done for other areas…
The last dataset we have in the upstream section is the acreage positions.
As we are now looking at other datasets, we will remove the upstream data from the map and turn on some of the pipelines, and processing plants. You can sort them, and put the pipelines at the bottom. In the pie chart, you can see different metrics such as top operators by miles of pipelines. For example, Energy Transfer has 37,000 miles.
If you are interested in the Midstream, everything has the same mechanics. You have the ability to filter the data, look at the pipeline operators, and filter them by many other metrics: the owner, the operator, the diameter, the status of a pipeline, including some of the previous operator’s data.
Another ability that I want to show you is to filter by multiple different layers. As you can see, I have 3 different layers turned on: gas pipelines, processing plants and compressor stations. Moreover, I try to find what is common among these and there are a few filter rules that are in common.
One of them, for example, will be «owner» and I use «contains» as an operator and enter «Williams». So when I type here, this is going to filter down all the pipelines, processing plants and compressor stations by Williams. So the map application starts removing any pipelines or facilities that are not owned by Williams. Below a report also will be generated with different operating companies that they own.
I also can look at a couple of other reports. I can look, for example, at gas plants by capacity and status. I can see the Williams’ gas processing plant capacity.
If I’m trying to focus on a particular area, I can also filter the data visually, using filter by the view. My reports are going to be on whatever is on my screen. So if you are interested in how many processing plants are owned by Williams in this area I can apply this filter and see it here.
Of course, I can continue to zoom in on the facility. Let us inspect what we know about this particular facility. The system (with the use of the Inspect tool) will give me different reports similar to what we have looked at under my map.
You can see the gas plant’s name, the owner, the operator, the capacity, the previous ownership, some information about pipelines, their type of transmission, diameter, transaction date etc.
Here is another way that we can use the application. Let us look at saving the maps. In the right top corner, we can choose to save maps. For example, my saved map – KinderMorgan Terminals will remember the areas I was in, and what assets were shown. This is a good way to save your research time when you come back again to resume working on your project. You also have the ability to save your queries too.
If you work on multiple different projects, one of these for example in Texas and different operators, filters and layers you can save this map for later. In the addition, you can share it with your team, for somebody who leads the project and develops the infrastructure.
Let me quickly show you power and renewables data. We will put some power plants, substations, powerlines, and some wind turbines. If you are a company that has an interest in electrical infrastructure, you can use this application for the same process in order to know
- who owns it,
- what is the nearest substation for your project that you can connect with,
- who is the operator of this line,
- all the information will be there and can be extracted in the same way.
There is quite a lot of interactivity that is built into the application to work with teams because it is an unlimited number of users license that we offer. You have an ability to collaborate within your company.
There is an ability to upload the data. If you have your data or data of the third companies that you want to upload into the application, t accepts shapefiles as well as KMZs. You also can draw your assets in it. If you are involved in the development of the pipelines you can draw these pipelines within the application, save and export it, as well as share them with other people in your team. We haven’t covered other datasets that are above the map here, but we will give you FREE trial access to the application and you can through navigate some of these things on your own and see how they can be used in your teams.
Thank you for your attention and participation in this webinar. See you in our next sessions.

On June 16 Targa Resources Corp. decided to acquire Lucid Energy Group, located in the Permian Basin, which is a part of Riverstone Holdings LLC and Goldman Sachs Asset Management. Firstly, Targa enlarged due to the recent “blot-on” acquisition of Southcross Energy in the Eagle Ford for $200 million and it will become bigger thanks to the $3.55 billion cash transaction. Targa’s financial position allowed it to utilize convenient opportunities to extend its company so it bought #Lucid using available cash and debt with an estimated pro forma year-end 2022 leverage around 3.5 times. According to Targa’s estimates, the acquisition of Lucid will increase the number of natural gas pipelines by 1,050 miles and add about 1.4 Bcf/d of cryogenic natural gas processing capacity in service or under construction located mainly in Eddy and Lea counties of New Mexico. The investment-grade producers source approximately 70% of current system volumes. According to the press release, a full-year standalone adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $2.675 billion and $2.775 billion and reported year-end leverage ratio of about 2.7 times. Targa’s updated financial expectations assume NGL composite prices average $1.05 per gallon, crude oil prices average $100/bbl, and Waha natural gas prices average $6 per MMBtu for the remainder of 2022.
Your team’s ESG performance can be greatly improved applying the asset co-location analysis within upstream or midstream use cases. This has been a topic for a discussion at Rextag’s ‘Is ESG Improvement Next Door?’ webinar. We reviewed some cases like curbing gas flaring or renewable energy sourcing to power the fossil fuel infrastructure. Many combinations are available with access to the data Rextag provides on wells, acreages, power lines, substations, and such renewable infrastructure as wind turbines, methane landfills, etc.
BPPlc agreed on June 13 to exit the Canadian oil sands in an asset swap with Cenovus Energy Inc. potentially worth up to CA$1.2 billion. 50% non-operated interest in the #SunriseOilSands project will be sold by BP in an agreement reached with Cenovus Energy, a company based in Alberta. Two companies agreed on the following conditions: total consideration for the transaction includes CA$600 million in cash, additionally, a contingent payment with a maximum aggregate value of CA$600 million expiring after two years, and concerning Cenovus, it will have a 35% position in the undeveloped Bay du Nord project offshore Newfoundland and Labrador. Current production from the Sunrise Oil Sands asset is about 50,000 bbl/d and the company anticipates achieving a nameplate capacity of 60,000 bbls/d through a multi-year development program.
