Production Accounting Solution (PAS)

Bringing productivity and accuracy to production accounting and regulatory reporting

Designed for production accountants by production accountants, CGI's Production Accounting Solution (PAS) was designed and is continuously evolved in collaboration with six major E&P companies in Canada incorporating collective best practices, process excellence, compliance standards and the latest technologies.

It’s adaptable for evolving industry complexities and scalable for future requirements across production accounting areas, including regulatory, asset acquisitions and divestitures.
