In the past couple of blogs on the E-Ticket Exchange, we’ve taken a close look at how oil & gas operators can significantly cut field costs by digitally delivering run ticket data. That boost to your cash flow can start today by finding your haulers on our list of 50+ service providers. And we can also work to get haulers not on our list integrated into the exchange. We also delved into how the E-Ticket Exchange works to seamlessly transfer real-time run ticket data from haulers to producers, so be sure to read that blog if you missed it.
In our last blog in this series, we look at some of the ways the E-Ticket Exchange ensures the accuracy of the run ticket data you receive.
Normalizing Run Ticket Data
As an operator, you receive hundreds of run tickets every month from multiple purchasers, water haulers, and other service providers. The result is that your team receives a myriad of paper run ticket formats with different naming conventions for your assets, including leases, wells, and tanks. Then it’s up to your pumpers to collate and transcribe this large volume of run ticket data into a spreadsheet or manually key it into an accounting system.
On one hand, paper-based run ticketing injects a high cost for producers. And on the other, lack of data standards and potential for human error create risks. The E-Ticket Exchange reduces both costs and risks. By integrating logistics service provider run ticket data directly into our cloud-based exchange, your team effectively cuts out the middleman (i.e., pumpers) and gains timely access to crude oil sales and other field transactions. At the same time, the E-Ticket Exchange standardizes and normalizes run ticket information using master data and validation.
