International Oil & Gas Accounting Master Class
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
24 - 27 February 2015
The commercial and operational practices of the oil and gas industry pose unique challenges to accountants who need to operate under multiple reporting frameworks with conflicting accounting methods and with unique contractual arrangements such as production sharing contracts and joint venture arrangements.
Against this background, IFRS is constantly changing with new Standards on revenue, joint arrangements, financial instruments and clarifications of treatments on asset and business acquisitions, all impacting upon the oil and gas industry.
The course considers both internal accounting issues and financial reporting under US GAAP and IFRS frameworks; and is fully updated for new Standards effective for 2014, 2015 and beyond.
The course will include a wide range of learning and development approaches including:
- Lecture-based presentations
- Practice case studies
- Reviews of relevant financial statements
- Group exercises and discussions
- Expert tutor input
This four-day course focuses on the accounting issues currently faced by the upstream oil and gas industry with an emphasis on operations under Production Sharing Contracts and Risk Sharing Contracts. It considers the accounting and financial reporting implications of all the main transactions undertaken in the upstream business, including cost allocation and capitalisation, revenue allocation and the accounting issues faced by joint venture operations and operators of concessions and PSC’s.
