ConocoPhillips has operated in Europe for more than 45 years, with significant developments in the U.K. and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea. The company also has an interest in a concession in Libya.
Developments in Europe include the Greater Britannia, J-Area and Southern North Sea (SNS) fields in the United Kingdom and the Greater Ekofisk Area in Norway. The company also has some exploration activity in both Norway and the United Kingdom.
In recent years, several growth projects have been undertaken in ConocoPhillips legacy areas in the North Sea. The company’s existing operations, infrastructure and basin expertise have created opportunities for incremental growth projects. In the United Kingdom, the Alder development achieved first gas in November 2016.
In Libya, the company has an interest in the Waha Concession in the Sirte Basin. After two years of curtailed production in Libya, which resulted from the forced shutdown of the Es Sider Terminal in late 2014, production resumed in October 2016.
