Open Forum Ethics Panel 

Upholding ethical standards in times of prosperity is easier than when times are tough. Without question, Alberta’s economy is experiencing challenging times. Despite acting in a capacity deemed to be legal, companies may infringe upon unethical territory to ensure survival. PASC is pleased to host an open forum ethics panel to discuss everything (including the kitchen sink) in context of accounting and the energy industry. Jennifer Tang from Deloitte will offer a reporting/guidance standpoint, Stacey Ward from Altagas will look at things from an internal auditor or organizations view, and Mark Pelzer from JVSA will provide the external auditor’s perspective.

KXL from an Economist's Perspective

Before the first sunset of a new Presidential regime, Joe Biden cancelled the development permit on the Keystone XL pipeline expansion. In effect, this decision will inevitably impact 17,000 direct and indirect jobs and stifle Canada’s ability to deliver production to the United States. The reality is that until consumer habits change, Americans still thirst for oil to consume. Though parties on both sides of the decision will have their opinion, renowned economist Dr. Jack Mintz will help us filter the noise and provide some ideas on how Canada should respond to this decision.

The ESG Movement

The Opportunity: The premise behind environment, social and governance initiatives is to foster corporate initiatives that are dynamic, transparent and visible to the greater public. Through effective use of policy and technology, industries with complex processes such as oil and gas have the opportunity to showcase their ESG metrics in a fashion that is easy to understand and readily accessible. The aggregation of data and integration strategies is one mechanism to promote industry collaboration to ensure a worthwhile effort to mitigate climate change and GHG emissions. Join Dan Giurescu from TerraHub and Megan Harris Ngae from E&Y as they provide an overview of the recent advancements in ESG reporting.

PASC’s Key Publications

PASC is more than just conferences and webinars. Some members are surprised to realize that the association hosts a wealth of historical and current agreements, accounting procedures as well as industry interpretations/guidelines that can help with your routines and workflow. With industry increasingly decommissioning and transferring assets, Brad Duke of Conoco and Mike Lefaivre of CNRL will discuss how practitioners can leverage the Material Inventory Catalogue to equitably value field assets for the joint account. In addition, Lynda MacNeill of Ember Resources will outline recent enhancements to our publications access and key documents which are of value for industry.
