Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. (Quorum) a leading provider of software solutions for the oil & gas industry announces that Keyera Facilities Income Fund (TSX:KEY.UN; KEY.DB) has selected Quorum TIPS software as its production accounting and contract management solution. Keyera joins AltaGas and Pengrowth as the third Canadian installation of Quorum TIPS, North America’s leading complex allocations software solution.
As one of Canada’s largest midstream operators, Keyera's business consists of natural gas gathering and processing as well as the processing, transportation, storage and marketing of NGL and crude oil. Keyera’s aggregate processing capacity exceeds 1,600 mmcf/d. In addition, Keyera holds interests in over 2,200 kilometres of natural gas gathering pipelines and 12 field compressor stations.
“We selected Quorum TIPS over a number of commercial products because we believe it will handle the more complex gas allocations and billings while providing us better access to production accounting information,” says Laurie Scott, Manager of Gas Plant Accounting at Keyera. “In addition, Quorum’s deep domain expertise in midstream operations & accounting, track record of successful product delivery and its active User Group support helped solidify our decision.”
The implementation of Quorum TIPS, as well as the Quorum Query & Reporting Module is now underway with the project scheduled to be complete by September 2006.
