Presentation Summary:  The costs for the Energy Industry to find, develop, produce, and manage oil and gas production has 3 key components:

1.     Technology enhancements improve industry performance

2.     Finding & Development costs can shrink with more reserves identified for each well (multi-lateral horizontal wells completed with dozens of hydraulic fractures)

3.     Operating costs can be driven down through ruthless efficiency gains extracted by applying best practices, benchmarking, and determined focus on the bottom line

By combining the cost components, full cycle costs can be compared between Western Canada and other basins throughout North America. The industry will systematically develop lower cost basins first. Natural Gas Liquids can provide an important price uplift for gas producers, thus producers may select liquid prone regions first. The presentation concludes with a quick recap of LNG, full cycle oil & gas costs, along with oil sands cost. If you want to get a concise version on full cycle costs, this is the Event for you.

PASC November Luncheon
2011 Accounting Procedure
Event Starts: November 20, 2014
Time: 11:30am - 1:00pm
Location: Calgary Petroleum Club (319 5th Avenue SW)

The PASC 2011 Accounting Procedure has changed the way companies should look at their AFE budgets. In past accounting procedures, the AFE budget was used for guidance and to establish limits on engineering expenditures but it ultimately did not establish the types of costs that would be approved. This luncheon will focus on the specific things that an approving engineer needs to pay attention to when it comes to AFE budgets and also what that will mean to the accountants administering the Joint Account.
