YP Simplified Series Presents:

Hydrocarbon Accounting… Much More Than Counting Barrels

Steve Penman, Adept Solutions


Registration and networking from 6.00 pm, with the event starting at 6.45 pm


Hydrocarbon accounting is the cash register of an operator’s oil and gas business. The accuracy and timeliness of hydrocarbon accounting is essential in order to satisfy joint venture partners, allow operators to make the best commercial decisions, and to fulfil the requirements of the industry regulators.

When you consider that even relatively minor errors and delays can ultimately add up to significant financial losses, with the potential for millions of dollars to be removed from an operator’s account sheet, its importance becomes all the more evident.

In this presentation, Steve explains:

  • What Hydrocarbon Accounting is,
  • What is required in order to manage it successfully,
  • Common areas where things can go wrong!
