A career in Production Accounting is a unique blend of financial accounting, regulatory, data analysis and production reporting. It is a role that requires a balance of technical and behavioral skills. Production accountants receive information from the field, land administrators, joint venture analysts, marketing and financial departments in order to perform monthly requirements of their role. Production Accountants calculate and report volumes of oil, gas and water produced from the wells as well as various other activities at the associated facilities. They also manage the calculation and distribution of revenue, division of ownership, and royalties. The information that the Production Accountant produces is critical to company operations, management and financial reporting.

The 5-level CAPPA certificate program is offered at both Mount Royal University and SAIT with in-person and online courses each semester.

CAPPA also offers Continuing Professional Development opportunities for members and industry professionals through seminars and luncheons. Please see our Events page.
