The Fort Worth affiliated chapter of the Council of Petroleum Accountants Societies (FWPAS), founded in 1952, is a nonprofit association of professionals in the energy industry. that provides continuing education, networking and community outreach opportunities as well as a forum to discuss accounting issues facing our industry and contribute to the development of oil and gas industry accounting publications and guidelines. Our members are comprised of professionals in companies ranging from sole proprietorship to large integrated “majors” within the upstream, midstream, downstream and oil field services industries, academics, government agencies, and consulting and service companies to the energy industry.
