ConocoPhillips Projects and Business Highlights

ConocoPhillips intents to develop conventional and unconventional resources: light oil, heavy oil, oil sands, natural gas liquids (NGL), conventional natural gas, coalbed methane, shale gas and oil shale, and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Over the last years ConocoPhillips created a global LNG business with the Qatargas 3 project in Qatar, Bayu-Undan in the Timor Sea, the Darwin LNG Plant in Australia and the $20 billion world-class APLNG on going project to develop one of largest coal seamgas (CSG) resource positions in Australia.

ConocoPhillips still sees more opportunities in Australia with the Sunrise field in the Timor Sea and the Browse basin for which floating LNG are at conceptual study

If ConocoPhillips has now dropped all its interest in Russia, instead it will focus on:

 – Alaska with ANS Gas and Ugnu

 – Canada oil sands with Deep basin and central Alberta in addition to new phases of development in Surmont III, Foster Creek, Narrow Lake and Christina Lake.

 – Caspian Sea with Kashagan phases development

 – China with Bohai Optimization and Bohai III

 – North Sea with Clair Ridge, Rivers, Alder and on going Ekofisk South and Eldfish II

 – USA with Permian basin and San Juan basin 

Listing separately Phillips 66 and exiting Russia are giving ConocoPhillips and the financial resources to reduce its debts and and to focus on exploration and production especially in the most promising offshore conventional resources and onshore unconventional oil and gas fields.
