AG-11 Internal Audits of Exploration and Producing Divisions

This publication results from a joint project of COPAS and the Institute of Internal Auditors, and provides guidelines in conducting an operating review of a company’s exploration and production Divisions.  These divisions represent the heart of an oil and gas company and are normally where the major dollars are expended.  Internal reviews of such divisions, as well as those of the billing and payable functions can detect internal control weaknesses and can result in savings of significant dollars.  24 pages. Pub. 1990.
