Morning Keynote: The Success-Energy Reset

In this thought-provoking session, Health and Productivity Expert Michelle Cederberg shares research from her new book The Success-Energy Equation that will make you think, laugh and take action on your dreams.

In this high-energy keynote, you will:

  • Get clear on your own definition of success; what really matters to you in work and life, and what drives you to do what you do? Has anything changed?
  • Look at typical barriers that get in the way of success, and how you can effectively navigate them (you’ll have some laughs with his one).
  • Discover four science-backed variables that contribute to higher levels of goal success and overall well-being and how to make them work for you.

Noon Keynote: Going Wild in Strange Times

A spirit lifting journey into some of the best Canadian wilderness locations.

Feeling tired of Covid? Get out. That’s right, get up & get outside!The restorative powers of Nature simply cannot be overstated. If we invest the necessary focused awareness, time and energy, the outdoors can tell us so much about ourselves and the world around us. For this presentation, after some brief forays into some international locations, Brian will return us to his own western Canadian landscapes, reconfirming the value of our collective understanding of the importance of wild spaces and the creatures that have adapted to live there.

A look at FFV sources and definitions in context of data validation utilizing measurement schematics

The goal of this presentation is to provide the Production Accountant the knowledge and tools to validate and report fuel flare and vent volumetrics to Petrinex. Jonathon describes the various sources of FFV and how some of the common equipment in the field functions so that the Production Accountant has the ability to understand the processes that happen behind all of the lines and symbols that are seen and not seen on measurement schematics. With this information the Production Accountant should be able to rectify the data that they are receiving from their field data capture systems and determine if the information that they are receiving is reasonable and complete, or if there is anything questionable or awry. Utilizing measurement schematics is the most efficient and complete way of validating volumetrics, and giving the PA the resources to identify errors and work with operations to fix FFV and emissions data before it is reported only strengthens your company’s bottom line.

The Practical Side of Emerging Technologies and the Impact on PA

This session will provide an overview of emerging technologies that are relevant to property accounting. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are no longer fictional but are commonly used in business processes today. The session will illustrate how emerging technology has already been successfully implemented into property accounting.  The impact on the future of PA, how employees can develop strategies to adapt to technology and how PAs can plan to be a part of this future growth will be discussed.

From this presentation, participants will:

  1. Gain understanding of what the different forms of technology are,
  2. See how these are currently being implemented into PA and,
  3. Develop strategies to adapt to these changes.

Methane Emission Monitoring: Past, Present and Proposed Future

The presentation will focus on Alberta’s Methane Emissions program, the implementation, measurement, monitored and reported for the upstream oil and gas sector. With a review of the most recent of the Upstream Petroleum Industry Emissions report, including overall emission reduction trajectory towards meeting the 2025 methane reduction target. The discussion will also focus on reporting discrepancies between reported venting volumes to the Petrinex system vs. the reported venting volumes in the OneStop system. Lastly, the presentation will touch on information of potential proposed changes to measurement, monitoring and reporting frameworks will be discussed including red-tape reduction initiatives.
