Seminar Description

Saskatchewan is an inviting jurisdiction for oil industry producers; with an attractive investment climate, Saskatchewan wells account for 15% of total Canadian crude produced.  Many Production Accountants are familiar with Alberta reporting; however there are a number of integral differences in Saskatchewan production accounting concepts.

This seminar will teach participants about the main differences in Saskatchewan production accounting, and facilitate a further understanding of the reporting required for the Saskatchewan jurisdiction.  It is ideal both for production accountants who are currently involved in Saskatchewan, as well as for production accountants interested in gaining further knowledge about Saskatchewan reporting.

Topics covered

Overview of the key concepts for Saskatchewan Production Accounting:

  • Infrastructure Reporting
  • IRIS System Overview
  • Monthly Reporting (Overview, Volumetric, Waste Plant, Pipeline Splits, Valuation)
  • Monthly Reporting Base Cases
  • Enhanced Valuation Audit Program
  • Directive 17 for Saskatchewan
  • Enhanced Production Audit Program
  • Upcoming/Hot Topics
  • Crown Concepts and Details
  • Crown Base Cases

Workshop format

This workshop is an interactive, instructor-led session. Participants will develop an understanding of Saskatchewan production accounting, working through examples and reviewing production reporting concepts.

Who will benefit

This course is intended for production accountants who have some familiarity with production accounting but who want to further their understanding of Saskatchewan production accounting.

Kim started as a Revenue Accountant at Total Petroleum and worked in various Production and Revenue Accounting roles over the years and was most recently the Supervisor, Saskatchewan Production/Revenue Accounting at Penn West Exploration until she moved into her current role as Manager, Production/Revenue Accounting at Northern Blizzard as of September 2014.

Sean Nicholson

Born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan it seemed to be a natural fit that he learns the ropes for Production Accounting on Saskatchewan properties.

Sean’s first opportunity was at Renaissance Energy (now Husky Energy) doing exclusively Saskatchewan properties in the Swift Current area. From there he went to Baytex to do more Saskatchewan Production Accounting. The next stop was Samson Canada where he was able to work into a leadership position in the BC Production Accounting Group. Sean was Manager, Production/Revenue Accounting at both Fairborne Energy (2006-2009) and more recently Trilogy Energy (2009-2015).  Deciding that he had been away from Saskatchewan properties for far too long, he left Trilogy to be the Manager, Production/Revenue Accounting at Crescent Point Energy in April 2015. Sean has a large group at Crescent Point and enjoys the challenge of leading and mentoring Production Accountants.

In addition to his work, Sean felt a need to give back to the career that helped him so much. For several years Sean was the primary instructor for the Saskatchewan and BC Reporting and Saskatchewan Royalty Modules for the CAPPA Program. Sean also joined the Conference Committee for CAPPA and began a fruitful nine year stint on the Board of Directors of CAPPA in 2006 with the privilege of serving two years as President of CAPPA. In 2015 Sean decided to step away from the Board and was awarded a Lifetime Membership.

Sean is also the Industry Representative for the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (EPAC) on the Petrinex Steering Committee.

In 2015 Sean successfully graduated from the Smith School of Business (Queen’s University) with an MBA.
