Oil & Gas

Drilling into challenges and exploring financial opportunities

Dealing with commoditization, long periods of boom or bust, pricing fluctuations and generational gaps in the workforce, among a host of other issues, makes how you manage the accounting, finance and operations of your upstream oil and gas business a monumental challenge. Adding international politics and policies into the mix creates unknowns that change daily, all of which impact your top and bottom lines. As a result, you may face critical challenges including dealing with commodity pricing, over burdensome regulations and the quality and quantity of the workforce, to name a few.

Upstream energy businesses call on us to guide them through the multitude of obstacles they face like operations, production, regulatory, financial and taxation issues. These businesses include small and medium-size independent oil field service companies, exploration and production and refining companies, engineering (project management and construction) companies and engineering consulting firms.

Though there are certainly challenges in the energy industry, the future is bright, and opportunities are abundant.
