“We discovered there was an untapped opportunity enabling midsized upstream operators to organize and categorize their well master data, improve the overall data quality, and drive further operational improvements to their business,” said Palash Misra, Director, Stax Inc., a strategy consulting firm. “Introducing EnergyIQ into the Quorum ecosystem of products enhances Quorum’s value proposition by providing a complete and reliable record for internal and external well master data.
