APA®, Bayou State Oil Corporation
“Before working with Connect, our company, Bayou State Oil, as a Transporter, kept talking about a solution for a website and potential online delivery of Operator Statements and Royalty Statements for Owners. John and his team at Connect (partnered with WolfePak) helped us launch our first website (+ secure web portal) and take the first steps toward doing just that. We have been able to refer our Owners/Operators not only to information and forms on our newly developed website, but, most importantly, to an Owner/Operator portal where their monthly Statements are securely stored for access at any time. Connect helped us work through the startup phase and has continued to help us achieve our desired outcome. We are looking forward to the next round of innovations from Connect that will enable Bayou State Oil to enhance our workflow, and provide our Owners and Operators with information they need as quickly and accessible as possible.”
2022 President of National Association of Royalty Owners
“The need for operators to provide a fully functional “owner portal” for mineral and royalty owners to access information on their wells is an idea long overdue. John Welch and his team at O&G Platform have developed an exciting step in that direction with their product. I hope to see this idea widely adopted among operators to improve communications, transparency, and goodwill with the owner community.”

“At Homebound Resources, Irving Texas, before we were operators, we were working interest partners in several wells. We were fortunate enough to be involved in some good producing wells, which was exciting, but up to date production information was always lacking from the operator. The updates we would get would essentially be the revenue statements at the end of the month. The desire for constant production updates was always there, but just never available from the operator.
Fast forward several years later, and we are now an operator ourselves, and therefore have daily production from all the wells to our hearts desire. As operators, we see the info is always there, it’s just the passing along of this info to investors that can become quite time consuming, so to a certain extent, we could understand why operators (especially small independents) don’t try to pass this info along to their investors.
It was exciting from a working interest/investor standpoint to see that WolfePak and Connect offer the investor web interface option. Being working interest owners ourselves, this level of transparency was really cool. It seemed like a great way to give our investors more information than other oil companies may be willing or able to provide. A great way for us to stand out amongst our people. The fact that Connect, interfaces with Wolfepak makes this really efficient from a time standpoint since we can just import each day. I do the updates and it takes me roughly 3 minutes each morning, for all the wells at once. We recently had an investor call to let us know how happy he is with the transparency & the service. Usually when investors call, it’s not to compliment the operator, so this was a pleasant surprise.”

“It saves me so much time by not having to search for the well, type in my report, save my report in PDF form, then send the report. A simple copy and paste is all it takes… literally seconds. I have also found myself using the system for quick searches. If I can’t remember who owns a company, I can just type in the email address or company name and it pulls up that information up for me. I love the way it sends the daily reports out a month at a time now instead of for just a few days… a quick glance is all it takes for investors to see what is happening, and it gives them the opportunity to go as far back as they would like and look at information over time (without having to call me to re-send the whole report!). Not only that, the website gives investors instant access… if they don’t have time to read an email or daily report, they can log into the system at their leisure and read about it later – indeed check on ALL of their investments – in one nice, tidy package. The mobile app is fantastic for those on the go. Several investors have reported to me that they like the new set-up very much. Overall, I am very pleased. The possibilities are boundless!
I do want to thank you for your help and attention. Connect Technology’s Employees have been wonderful to work with!”
