"All these people will end up rejoining the chase, helping build assets in the Rockies," said Mike Bock, chairman of the banking and finance committee of the Independent Petroleum Association of Mountain States."It's constantly rejuvenating itself."
The Rockies are viewed as the most promising region of new natural gas development.
Bock oversees the corporate finance group at Petrie Parkman & Co., which was an adviser on the Westport Resources and Tom Brown Inc. acquisitions.
He said the smaller firms find it more costly in time and money to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, passed in 2002 in response to corporate accounting and finance scandals.
The law is designed to make management more accountable to shareholders by requiring executives to sign off on financial statements and holding them criminally liable for inaccuracies.It also sets guidelines for board composition and function.
"It's a bigger burden on smaller companies and makes efficiencies of consolidation more apparent," Bock said.

Mike Bock, an investment advisor in Calgary, has sold AIC Ltd. mutual funds for years, but his confidence in the company is slipping.
Lousy performance has prompted investors to pull $1.64-billion from AIC funds since the beginning of 2002, with net redemptions averaging $130-million a month in the first half of 2004.In fact, withdrawals have outpaced sales for 27 consecutive months, a dubious achievement outdone only by the 28-month drought still ravaging AGF Management Ltd.
Mr. Bock, who runs Ironman Financial, a financial planning firm affiliated with Aegon Dealer Services Canada Inc., is unsure whether AIC will bounce back, and he does not really know what to tell clients perturbed by their dismal returns.
"That has been a sore point in my portfolio for some time now," he says.
Down deep, Mr. Bock believes investors ought to think long-term, just like AIC preaches.But it's hard to make a case for sticking with AIC, Canada's 13th-largest fund company with $11.7-billion in assets under management, if it doesn't start producing for its unitholders.
"Going forward, I think that AIC is in a position where they should perform well," says Mr. Bock, who is somewhat heartened by AIC's improving results this year.
"I'm in a hold pattern with AIC for the time being," Mr. Bock said.
