Upcoming Virtual Courses

The oil and natural gas industry is broad and complex, so IPAA has partnered with Energy Training Resources, LLC and developed an information-packed Virtual Oil and Gas Overview Course that connects the functional and commercial aspects of the industry. The course has an upstream focus with some midstream information and will thoroughly cover the following topics:

  • Industry structure
  • Petroleum geology and exploration
  • Mineral rights and leasing
  • Drilling and completion
  • Development and production operations

View our Course Topics for a detailed description of each section.

The course is recommended for oil and gas company employees, suppliers, contractors, attorneys, accountants, bankers, investors, traders, insurers, regulators, etc. and qualifies for CPE, AAPL and TEA credits.

If you register 5 or more colleagues for the course you will receive $25 off per person. Registrations must be submitted all at once using our PDF registration form.

Proceeds benefit the IPAA Educational Foundation.

This course addresses the relationship between oil and gas operations and stated financial results. Attendees will learn about activities that generate revenues and costs, how leasing and joint operations impact the sharing of those revenues and costs, and how key revenues, costs, assets and liabilities are reflected in the financial statements.

This course is not just for accountants! An understanding of the link between operational activities and financial results can be useful across an organization in improving employee understanding of management financial goals. However, this is not a light course and is information packed, so is best for those who have a genuine interest in the subject matter.

Following are the course topics:

    1. Financial Introduction
    2. Revenue: Oil and Gas Products and Product Marketing
    3. Exploration, Exploration Costs and Unconventional Development
    4. Commercial Terms: Mineral Rights and Leasing
    5. Joint Operations: Operated vs. Non-Operated
    6. Drilling and Completion and Treatment of Costs
    7. Development and Production Operations and Costs
    8. Reserves, DD&A, Impairment, Abandonment, and Disclosures
