Due diligence and the EnergyNet IDR

Performing due diligence is a critical component of EnergyNet's online marketplace. We are excited to offer the most comprehensive and accessible due diligence information in the industry. Learn about Energynet's online due diligence information and the EnergyNet Internet Data Room (IDR) here, plus tips that will aid your due diligence research.

Property Information Pages

Every property sold in the EnergyNet continuous online marketplace has a "Property Information Page" that contains a wealth of due diligence information. This information is organized in a format that is standard across the EnergyNet website in order to assist with your due diligence research.

Property information pages contain the following information:

  • Lot Description
  • Production charts, graphs and tables
  • Monthly revenue/expense tables
  • The property information sheet prepared by the seller

The property information sheet also links you to the EnergyNet Internet Data Room (IDR), which contains copies of original documents submitted by sellers, including agreements, check stubs, drilling reports, historical production curves, logs and well data, maps and plats, and much more.

Data packages for each lot are available on the property information pages for free download, or can be purchased printed and bound for a reasonable fee.

The EnergyNet IDR

The EnergyNet Internet Data Room (IDR) provides a simple interface to access all a wealth of due diligence data from one screen. You can browse through individual pages, multi-page documents and multiple document sets all from the same interface. Intuitive controls allow you to view lists of documents, thumbnails of pages or both at the same time. When documents are presented in a variety of file formats, you'll be able to switch between formats through a simple drop-down menu. You'll also have the ability to fill your entire computer monitor with pages and the minimal controls necessary to navigate through them, putting more due diligence information on the screen than ever before.

If you encounter any scenario where the IDR does not work properly for you, you can always browse due diligence the older way by clicking the "View Classic" links on the Property Information page instead. However, if you find a bug that prevents you from using the IDR altogether, we would like to hear about it. Our top priority is to create a product that meets the needs of our clients. Visit our Contact page for contact information.

Accessing the IDR

You access the IDR by clicking the orange "Enter Data Room" buttons in the Due Diligence section of the property information page you are viewing.

Click the orange "Enter Data Room" buttons to access the IDR

Note: If you do not wish to use the new IDR, and would prefer to view due diligence information using the older method, click the "View Classic" links instead. "Unified" document set mode is not available using the classic method.

IDR Control Panel

Idr control menu
The IDR control panel

Text area

The text area of the IDR control panel displays the following information:

  • The lot number and short description.
  • The document set you are looking through
  • The current document within the document set that is being displayed.

The "Document Set" drop-down box lets you choose which document set to look through without the need to return to the property information page.

Selecting "All Document Sets / Unified Mode" will let you browse through all documents sets at once. When you view due diligence in Unified Mode, documents will be grouped by set and displayed under the document set heading in the list.

The "Current Document" area of the control panel displays the document you are currently viewing.

Control Panel buttons

The following buttons appear on the IDR Control Panel. Each button has two "states," similar to a light switch. You click the buttons once to turn them on or off.

Show List / Hide List: This button will turn the list of pages on and off. When you turn on the Page List, a list of all the documents within the currently-selected document set is displayed. The document you are viewing is highlighted in green. You can scroll through the list with the scrollbar, or by using your mouse wheel.

When the Page List is being displayed, turn it off by clicking the "Hide List" button.

Show Pages / Hide Pages: This button will display thumbnail-sized pictures of the pages in the document set. When viewing the pages this way, click the one you would like to view and it will be displayed immediately. When you click "Show Pages," the page that is currently displayed will be highlighted. The Page View hides itself after you make a selection to give you more room to view the document.

Fullscreen / Standard: This button lets you switch into Fullscreen mode, then return to Standard mode. When the IDR is Fullscreen, the rest of the web site is removed from your screen to give you more room to view documents.

Important Tip: Most modern web browsers let you put the browser in fullscreen mode, too, by pressing the "F11" key on your keyboard. Press F11 again to return to standard mode. By putting both the IDR and your web browser in fullscreen mode, you can fill an entire computer monitor with due diligence information and nothing else!

Return to property info: This button returns you to the property information page for the property you are viewing.

Menu panel buttons

The menu panel buttons help you navigate through documents. Buttons that are enabled turn green. Other buttons that are orange are available, and turn green when you enable them. When a button is gray, it is not currently available. For instance, if you are at the beginning of a document set, the "First" and "Prev" buttons are gray, and unavailable.

Format drop-down selector: Many times, a particular page or document is available in multiple file formats. When you are viewing a page where this is true, you have the option to switch between the different available formats.

  • PDF: PDF, or Portable Document Format, is a widely-used, multi-page format. Viewing a document in PDF format requires the Adobe PDF browser plugin. When viewing a PDF document, you may save or print the document from the toolbar at the top of the document.
  • Scribd: This versatile format allows for multi-page documents from several types of original sources, and is the default format selected if it is available. Scribd allows you to zoom into and out of pages. (Note: Scribd requires the standard Flash browser plugin, widely available. It is highly probable that your web browser already uses the Flash plugin.)
  • DjVu: This is the traditional EnergyNet format, and allows for zooming. Documents that appear in this format are one-page documents. (Requires browser plugin from Lizardtech. Follow your web browser prompts to install it if you have not already done so.)
  • JPG: Standard image format.
  • GIF: Another standard image format, but with the option to zoom into and out of the images. Most documents in the DjVu format are also available as GIFs.

Zoom: The Zoom plus (+) and minus (-) buttons zoom into and out of document types that support zooming. (Note: The zoom buttons on the menu bar do not work in DjVu documents. You must use the zoom buttons on the DjVu menu bar to zoom.)

Navigate: The navigation buttons let you advance to the next or previous pages in a document set, or skip to the first or last page.

Important Tip: If you are viewing a multi-page document (PDF and Scribd documents are often multiple pages), the "Prev" and "Next" buttons navigate through the pages within that document. When the last page is reached, the "Next" button will advance to the next document in the set.
