Quorum Software Announces Release of Entero MOSAIC v2018
Exceeds Industry Expectations for a Unified Platform for Reserves, Budgeting, and Economics
CALGARY, Alberta, April 24, 2018 – Quorum Software, the leader in digital transformation for the oil and gas industry, is excited to announce the highly anticipated latest release of Entero® MOSAIC™, the only truly unified solution in the upstream industry for reserves management, budgeting, and economics. MOSAIC v2018 is the first release from the new Entero division of Quorum Software formed from the acquisition of Entero Corporation by Quorum Software earlier this month. This new release delivers enhancements that enable greater accuracy, flexibility, and improved productivity for the economic forecasting of reserves, and operating and capital budgets.
Offering over 300 industry-driven enhancements, MOSAIC v2018 provides upstream companies with the most productive user experience in the market through a modern, workflow-oriented interface. “Our new automated reconciliation process, as well as the composite workbench, are truly innovative approaches to managing the plethora of data in the upstream industry,” said Todd Kuipers, Director of Product Management. “We worked with our customers and industry experts to understand key business processes and built v2018 to alleviate the challenges that our users faced with other systems.”
Key highlights in MOSAIC v2018 include:
- Rapid Reconciliation– Game changing functionality with highly configurable, push-button reconciliation for both regulatory Resources & Reserves (PRMS), and capital and operating budgeting.
- Usability – Composite workbench to quickly filter, sort, and search on hundreds of input, economic detail, and result variables. Users can also easily customize One Line Reports for review, QA, export, or filing.
- Extensive Presentations and Layouts – Chart detailed economics and compare indicators between scenarios on the new scatter plot.
- New Data Imports – Alternate ID alignment to allow data imports and connections from disparate sources.
- US Tax Changes – New bonus depletion options for MACRS15, in addition to MACRS7, support the December 2017 Congressional overhaul of US tax laws.
“As more legislative changes arise for our industry, our team is responding promptly to the market and adapting our technology to meet the requirements of our customers,” says Mike Lake, President of the Entero Division of Quorum Software. “MOSAIC is once again first-to-market in delivering reliable functionality for new government changes. This means that our customers can work quickly to implement these changes into their business, with minimal disruption.”
Legislative changes include a substantial bonus depreciation allowance for tangible capital expenditures with an expected depreciable life of 20 years or less, placed into service between September 27, 2017, and December 31, 2026. Of special interest to US oil and gas companies is the provision that the Bonus Depreciation not only applies to new capital expenditures, but also to capital used to acquire existing property. This is especially relevant to companies engaged in asset acquisitions.
The latest release provides upstream oil and gas companies with a simple and convenient option to trigger the application of the new Bonus Depreciation Allowance. MOSAIC v2018 offers a MACRS15 depreciation class, in addition to MACRS7, giving upstream companies more options when scheduling Tangible capital. The release also supports the ability to assign either MACRS depreciation class to each Tangible capital expenditure type. These new laws affect only Tangible capital and do not change the way Intangible, Lease or G&G capital expenditures are currently depreciated or amortized.
