The Latest Episodes

Why a podcast on Oil and Gas Accounting? We want to bring valuable accounting information to the folks who deal with oil and gas accounting on a daily basis. If you're a CPA, an accountant, a bookkeeper, an office manager, or if you're an oil and gas operator that's doing the accounting yourself, you are who this podcast is for.

Because there's so much happening in the world today, especially in oil and gas that affects the accounting function,  we want to be a place that you can come to for relevant and timely information on the different accounting issues that you're facing.
