InstaNext, a premier provider of cloud-hosted energy trading and risk management solutions, announced today that Lonestar Resources has licensed the InstaNext platform for crude oil and natural gas.
Headquartered in Fort Worth, TX, Lonestar is a Leading independent E&P company involved in the exploration, production, and acquisition of unconventional Oil, NGL’s and Natural Gas properties in the Eagle Ford Shale region. Within Eagle Ford, the energy company currently has a leasehold that exceeds 52,000 net acres.
Lonestar was looking for a cost-effective system to manage its commodity hedges from across the energy sector while providing full risk management and coverage analytics capabilities. InstaNext’s flexible architecture and ease of configurability paired with an outstanding customer referral, were essential in Lonestar’s decision to license the software.
Lonestar will use the InstaNext platform to manage its Crude Oil and Natural Gas swaps and to control its hedge coverage versus production volume. Within the system, Lonestar will also be able to reconcile positions and P&L with its counterparties. Lonestar previously managed its hedged positions with spreadsheets, which helped to simplify the InstaNext implementation and enabled the company to go live with the system in just a couple of weeks.
“Lonestar has a first-class hedging program, so to be chosen by them to enhance their operation and help improve margins is the ultimate recognition for InstaNext,” stated Richard Kulaszewski, EVP of Global Field Operations.
