Hawkwood Energy Selects InstaNext to Manage Crude Oil Hedging

InstaNext, a premier provider of cloud-hosted commodity trading and risk management solutions, announced today that Hawkwood Energy has chosen the InstaNext platform to manage their derivative trading and risk management activities as they continue to grow.

Hawkwood Energy is a Denver-based independent exploration and production company focused on acquiring and economically developing oil and natural gas resources in East Texas. Since its inception in 2012, Hawkwood has completed over twenty transactions accumulating 180,000 net acres of high quality, contiguous Eagle Ford acreage in East Texas. Hawkwood currently operates over 260 wells and in excess of 10,000 net barrels of oil per day.

Hawkwood was searching for a commodity management solution that would help streamline their business processes and reduce their lack of control due to the various spreadsheets they rely on to manage their crude oil derivatives and hedging activity. With its robust capabilities, it was an easy decision for the energy company to choose InstaNext.  Hawkwood plans to use the ETRM platform to manage their derivative risk management and reporting activities, as well as to reconcile P&L and settlements with their counterparties. In addition, InstaNext’s extensive reporting and analytics tools will provide the energy company with the necessary hedge limits vs. current PDP, forecasted production and bank limits and simplify the management of their reconciliations and reporting requirements.  “Hawkwood Energy is growing substantially as the company continues to acquire acreage in the Eagle Ford formation in East Texas. As production increases, the potential to add hedges exists. Hawkwood will be able to use the InstaNext platform to manage its growth and track it’s hedging limits in an organized and compliant manner,” stated Richard Kulaszewski, EVP at InstaNext.
