Petroleum Finance and Accounting Principles – PFA

Making the most efficient use of your resources is critical to the success of any company. Finance and accounting comprise the universal business language and help you manage those resources effectively. Planning and decision making that occur in an informal financial context permit better application of resources and promote competitive advantage. The aim of this course is to improve delegates' job performance by enhancing their understanding of current international practices in finance and accounting within the E&P industry. This is achieved through an examination of (a) accounting standards, policies, and practices in the oil and gas industry, and (b) the accounting and financial management implications of exploring for and producing oil and gas. An understanding of accounting also allows a company to trace a competitor's actions from its financial statements and to plan accordingly.
