UT Dallas Oil and Gas Financial Management Program
RICHARDSON, Texas (April 25, 2001) -- Fifty
professionals from 17 oil-producing nations around the globe will be on The
University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) campus from April 29 to May 25 attending
an intensive, month-long advanced program in oil and gas financial management.
The program is sponsored by The UTD School of Management’s (SOM) Center for
International Accounting Development.
The purpose of the program is to give participants
from a wide variety of countries an improved understanding of accounting,
legal, economic, technical, strategic, financial and taxation issues that
pertain to oil and gas operations, including refinery and petrochemical
Dr. Adolf Enthoven, program director, notes that
participants are chosen from middle- and upper-level personnel in private and
public sector operations from countries other than the U.S.
“The variety of backgrounds and countries helps
participants gain insights into comparative energy operations. They are also
able to compare notes and share experiences that help them gain a very broad
perspective,” Dr. Enthoven says.
A number of top energy experts from petroleum
corporations and accounting and consulting firms, such as
PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Thompson & Knight, Ernst & Young,
Accentura, Deloitte & Touche, and TXU, are involved in the program.
