Modern Resources Chooses InstaNext

InstaNext, a premier provider of cloud-hosted commodity trading and risk management solutions, announced today that Modern Resources has licensed the InstaNext software for forecast hedging and mark to market.

Based in Calgary, Modern Resources is an oil and gas company focused on the pursuit of proved reserve acquisitions with resource upside in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. The energy company has raised $432 million in equity, and under the guidance of a seasoned management team and board of directors, Modern has amassed a top tier, highly concentrated, integrated asset base in the Deep Basin. Modern is currently focused on resource validation and development of the Spirit River and Cardium plays of the Deep Basin.

Modern Resources was looking for a system that would give them the ability to manage their commodity hedging program while also providing the necessary coverage analysis of their natural gas and crude oil production. The energy company will use the InstaNext platform to manage their physical and derivative trades, and with the new system in place, Modern will be able to control their hedge coverage versus their budgeted volumes. With InstaNext’s extensive analytical and reporting capabilities, Modern will be able to reconcile positions and P&L with their counterparties and prepare disclosure reports. “Modern Resources will use InstaNext for its vast market data collection and percentage hedged. This combination creates significant value for our Canadian customer base,” stated Richard Kulaszewski, EVP Global Field Operations.
