Energy software leader expands portfolio of integrated well delivery solutions
CALGARY, Alberta, September 10, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Aucerna, the global energy industry's leading provider of solutions for integrated planning, execution, and reserves today announced it has acquired Micotan software, creators of the popular well life cycle management tool, Generwell™.
With this acquisition, Aucerna brings added capability to its well delivery execution solution and expands its market leadership in the areas of integrated capital management and operational planning for the E&P industry.
"The team at Micotan possesses unmatched experience and expertise in the field of well delivery planning and execution," said Wayne Sim, CEO of Aucerna. "Generwell was built on that experience, and today represents nearly two decades of operator-driven innovation."
Micotan was founded in 2002 with a mission to solve the major data management, workflow, and communication problems that still affect many operators in upstream oil and gas. Today, more than 25 petroleum companies rely on their software across North America.
Chris McPhee, president of Micotan, expressed excitement for the deal: "Micotan's success is rooted in innovative technology and amazing customer experiences. Our passion for service is shared by the Aucerna team."

Aucerna is tackling this problem head-on, and we are proud to now be a part of turning that steadfast vision into reality."
Over the long term, Aucerna intends to converge the functionality of its next-generation capital management and operational planning platform, Aucerna Execute, with Generwell™ to form a single cloud-based solution.
