Oil & Gas Services

The regulatory and reporting landscape is particularly complex for oil and gas companies. The geopolitics and mix of energy, natural resources and environmental issues add to the complexity for this industry. Oversight boards require more rigorous financial disclosure and demonstration of robust corporate governance. Cash management solutions driven by technology and opening markets, as well as complex tax and funding structures requiring careful management. There is an increased pressure on financial officers to demonstrate that risk identification and financial management are grounded in timely, accurate forecast and performance data on which top management can base strategic decisions.

With record high gas prices and replacement reserves located in challenging locations, oil and gas companies are changing to address the market conditions. Companies must contend with the changing regulatory requirements involving governance and reporting issues. In addition, the advent of International Financial Reporting Standards and section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act for US registrants has added to the challenges. All of this involves the need for a vigilant eye over corporate governance, internal audit and external reporting.
