AICPA Invites Feedback on Updated Oil and Gas Industry Guide


The AICPA on Friday published a working draft of the AICPA Audit and Accounting Guide, Entities With Oil and Gas Producing Activities.

 

The draft, which was developed by the Accounting Standards Executive Committee and the Entities with Oil and Gas Producing Activities Task Force, addresses many new accounting issues that have emerged over the years, according to Dan Noll, the AICPA’s director of accounting standards.

 

“We encourage interested parties to review the working draft and submit informal feedback,” Noll said.
