Hydrocarbon accounting for the global energy industry
Axis is the most agile comprehensive hydrocarbon accounting solution on the market. It has been designed specifically to ensure rapid implementation and full coverage of bespoke requirements.
At the heart of all our solutions is Axis Core. This provides the key building blocks of a hydrocarbon accounting system, from which we can deliver a solution to meet a client’s unique set of requirements. It is built around a single database that acts as the definitive source of production data for use throughout the organisation.
Its highly flexible data model is based on an object hierarchy that defines all the assets in the system (e.g. reservoirs, wells, platforms, pipelines, vessels, storage facilities, metering points, etc.) and the relationships between those. On top of this is defined the types of measurements and data points that will be used to store the production data associated with those objects. Attributes are defined for storing fixed data against the different objects.
The core functionality includes screens for viewing, entering and updating data; running calculation and data load processes; approving and un-approving data; maintaining the object hierarchy, measurement types and data points and maintaining users and security permissions. Calculations can be configured either by way of Excel spreadsheet templates or background processes. There is a configurable method for defining reports. The product provides support for data visualisation such as, for example, embedding data within plant schematics. Dashboards can be defined to provide quick access to data, reports and functions.
