What’s Trending in Oil & Gas Accounting
NAPAC highlighted what’s on the mind of oil and gas financial professionals. This year’s attendees represented a mix of industry veterans, experienced pros, and industry newcomers, making for engaging and timely discussions about key issues. Read below for a recap of three key trends from NAPAC:
1. State of the Oil & Gas Industry
People were hungry for industry information, especially around issues of job security and economic recovery. With the volatility of the past few years and the shifting demographics of the workforce, attendees wanted to know how to be prepared personally and professionally. NAPAC 2017 speakers presented their lessons learned from the challenging past two years, but also painted a brighter picture for the future.
2. Rules & Regulations
Whether the topics covered being audit ready or adapting to changing regulations, sessions detailing the regulatory aspect of accounting and the industry garnered the most attention from attendees. New standards and the new presidency are impacting how the oil and gas industry does business and what opportunities we can pursue, especially with regards to accounting. Christi Craddick from the Texas Railroad Commission and former US Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison presented on day one to inform attendees about local and national hot-button issues.
3. Technology & Innovation
Reporting topics dominated the sessions, as companies determine the best ways to gather and present their data. With companies handling enormous amounts of data, attendees were looking for the best way to manage information. Mobility was also a big topic with attendees, who were heavily relying on their phones to keep them connected with work while they were out of the office (and to help them choose which sessions to attend). People were drawn to sessions that explained how to leverage mobile technology in their everyday jobs.
