AFE Management Application

The easiest way to visualize AFE's.

Built to be the most flexible and powerful way to manage AFEs.

On average, it takes companies 2-3 months to receive an Authorization for Expenditure (AFE). This is a major pain point for many Oil & Gas companies within their current AFE processes. This is the result of lacking an effective system for managing all of their AFE’s and capital expenditures.


GDS Ware’s AFE Management System was designed to dramatically decrease the time spent on creating AFE’s, waiting for approvals and tracking capital expenditures. We can help you reduce the AFE approval time to just 1 business day.

  • Create AFE's from scratch or a saved template.
  • AFEs are guided through fully customizable workflows to put the AFE in the right hands at the right time. Route AFEs for internal review based on facility and AFE cost.
