Capital Cost Control and Pre-Drill Planning:

Get It Together in AFE Navigator 8.1

There will never be a better time to optimize your Authorization for Expenditure (AFE) processes in order to better track and control capital spending than right now. We've taken the web-based, fully mobile interface of AFE Navigator, added more AFE features and flexibility, AND combined it with a robust pre-drilling (or Request to Drill — RTD)  workflow that helps you prepare for a drilling application.

Fully integrated Request to Drill workflow


Systematically assemble and manage all the information, approvals and documentation necessary to submit a drilling license application.

  • Roll RTD information into the AFE workflow to carry you from pre-drill stages, through to drilling and completions, and operations.
  • Collaborate enterprise-wide by connecting information across multiple departments.
  • Define RTD rules that can be completely customized to work in any jurisdiction.
  • Send updates to relevant parties when additions, deletions or changes occur to reduce idle time and ensure work integrity.

Meet approval and accounting needs with greater flexibility

  • Create custom fields to match the needs of your company.
  • Add attachment fields and make certain attachments mandatory.
  • Users included in your workflow will be notified when additional information or attachments are required and the deficiency will be flagged for follow-up.
  • No more tracking down required documentation.

Build validation rules and approvals to meet your company’s needs


Simple, drag-and-drop graphic interface makes it possible to create and edit custom approval rules and validation rules for your company.

  • Build in automated checks and balances to ensure data integrity, before the AFE/RTD hits external systems.
  • Drastically shorten manual review times.
  • Model complex special cases in your approval workflow.

Visualize your spending and drilling activity


Spot regional spending trends with AFE mapping.

  • Armed with this information, you can investigate what conditions may be influencing costs for that location.
  • Plot top hole, bottom hole, directional drilling runs, etc., then overlay satellite mapping imagery to identify geographic features that may affect costs and drilling activity.
