Using the analytical hierarchy process (AHP), this study aims to prioritize management accounting techniques in National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company (NIORDC). The main data gathering method was the questionnaire with a number of predetermined questions distributed among the selected purposive sample of the high-ranked experts working in 13 sub-companies of NIORDC in 2014. The results of this study indicate that among the Management Accounting Techniques, Cost Management Technique is in priority in NIORDC and its subsidiaries. However, a similar study conducted in National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) concludes that Activity-Based Costing method is dominant. Comparing three out of four mother companies of Iranian Petroleum Ministry i.e. NIOC, National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) and NIORDC, cost management, economic value added and Activity-Based Costing techniques are highly preferred, respectively.
