Oil and gas back-office measurement and accounting is a complex task that receives high levels of scrutiny. A lack of training for measurement analysts and settlement accountants increases the risk of measurement inconsistencies, settlement errors, and costly deviations from contracts and tariffs.
That’s why we are proud to introduce a new class in 2022 as part of our fundamental training offering: Back-Office Gas Measurement Fundamentals.
GCI General Manager Weldon Wright will be introducing back-office fundamentals in April as part of a live, four-hour training workshop during the Quorum Software “Qnections” event in Las Vegas.
