OPERATIONS INFORMATION CENTER​

Our goal is to provide you accurate and timely information regarding impacts to ConocoPhillips' operations. If conditions change throughout the day, we will post an update here.


September 12, 2017 -  1:20 p.m.
ConocoPhillips today announced that production from its Eagle Ford (Texas) field has returned to pre-Hurricane Harvey rates of around 130 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (MBOED).

The company’s previously communicated production guidance for the third quarter and the full year is unchanged. Third-quarter 2017 production is expected to be 1,170 to 1,210 MBOED, which excludes Libya and reflects expected impacts from the San Juan, Barnett and Panhandle dispositions. The company’s full-year production on the same basis is expected to be 1,340 to 1,370 MBOED.


September 7, 2017 -  1:00 p.m.
ConocoPhillips’ Houston main campus will reopen on Monday, Sept. 11. Energy Center 3 (EC 3) will remain closed due to high water. Employees who utilize EC 3 will have alternative options, including temporary use of the main campus.


September 7, 2017 -  11:30 a.m.
We continue to bring Eagle Ford wells into production. As of Thursday, Sept. 7 our Eagle Ford production was running at over 90 percent of our pre-storm production rate of 130 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day. We expect to return to pre-storm levels in the next week or two, subject to third-party offtake access.


September 5, 2017 -  12:30 p.m.
We continue to bring Eagle Ford wells into production. As of Tuesday, Sept. 5 our Eagle Ford production was running close to 80 percent of our pre-storm production rate of 130 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day. We expect to return to pre-storm levels in the next week or two, subject to third-party offtake access.


September 4, 2017 -  1:00 p.m.
Our ongoing efforts to secure access to third-party offtake and downstream infrastructure has allowed us to continue bringing Eagle Ford wells into production. As of Monday, Sept. 4 our Eagle Ford production was running at close to 50 percent of our pre-storm daily production rate of 130 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day. Production is expected to be at about 80 percent of pre-storm levels by tonight, subject to third-party offtake access.

Production associated with natural gas liquids is expected to be the slowest to recover due to offtake constraints, which could persist for at least another week.


September 3, 2017 -  6:00 p.m.
The company continues to make progress in restoring production in the Eagle Ford. The primary focus is on securing access to third party offtake and downstream infrastructure, which are constrained following Hurricane Harvey. Production levels are expected to reach pre-Harvey rates when these constraints are relieved.


September 2, 2017 -  12:00 p.m.
The company continues to manage the process of restoring production in the Eagle Ford. The pace and level of production ramp up will be determined by access to third party offtake and downstream infrastructure, which are constrained following Hurricane Harvey. Production levels are expected to reach pre-Harvey rates when these constraints are relieved.


September 1, 2017 -  12:00 p.m.
The company has completed an assessment of its operated assets in the Eagle Ford area following Hurricane Harvey. Initial assessments indicate that there was minimal damage to the operations.

As a safety measure, the company shut in its operated Eagle Ford production on Friday, August 25 and began to re-start operations on August 27. The pace and level of production ramp-up in the Eagle Ford area is subject to various third party offtake and downstream constraints. Production levels are expected to reach pre-Harvey rates when third party constraints are relieved. Drilling and completion activities have resumed.

The company cannot predict the precise timing of when full field production will be restored. However, the company notes that the current production impacts represent a deferral only and does not expect to incur any loss of reserves due to this unplanned outage.


August 31, 2017 - 9:00 a.m.
ConocoPhillips is still assessing the impacts of Hurricane Harvey. The safety of our employees and their families is our primary focus.  

On Tuesday, Aug. 29 rising waters associated with heavy rains and flooding within the Guadalupe river system washed out 4 storage tanks at one of our well sites in DeWitt County, Texas. These tanks are used to temporarily store produced oil and produced water from the well. The 4 tanks held approximately 385 barrels of oil (16,160 gallons) and approximately 76 barrels of produced water (3,192 gallons), but the actual spill volume has not been determined.  At the time of the incident, this well remained shut-in, so no oil and water were flowing to the tanks.

At the time we suspected a second site experienced similar impacts and reported it to regulators. Upon inspection we found the site was secured and no oil or water had been spilled.

This well's production, as well as all ConocoPhillips/Burlington production in the Eagle Ford was shut-in from Friday, August 25 through Sunday, August 27 as a result of conservative and proactive measures undertaken by ConocoPhillips prior to Hurricane Harvey's landfall this past weekend. 

All applicable federal and state regulatory agencies were immediately notified. 


August 30, 2017 - 9:00 a.m.
ConocoPhillips is still assessing the impacts of Hurricane Harvey. The safety of our employees and their families is our primary focus. 

Due to widespread flooding in the Houston area, and to ensure the safety of our employees, our Houston offices will be closed until Tuesday, September 5.

In the Eagle Ford, our offices are now open. Due to limited offtake capability, our production in the Eagle Ford has resumed on a limited basis in some areas.  Our drilling and completion activities are expected to resume today.

Offshore at our Magnolia platform in the Gulf of Mexico, production is unaffected.


August 29, 2017 - 8:00 a.m.
ConocoPhillips continues to monitor the progress and impact of Hurricane Harvey. The safety of our employees and their families is our primary focus. We have been in contact with employees in our impacted regions to make sure they are safe.

Due to widespread flooding in the Houston area, and to ensure the safety of our employees, our Houston offices will be closed until Tuesday, September 5.

In the Eagle Ford, our offices are now open. Due to limited offtake capability, our production in the Eagle Ford has resumed on a limited basis in some areas.

Offshore at our Magnolia platform in the Gulf of Mexico, production is unaffected.


August 28, 2017
ConocoPhillips continues to monitor the progress and impact of Hurricane Harvey. The safety of our employees and the community is our primary focus. 

Due to safety concerns, our Eagle Ford office in Kenedy, Texas, is closed to non-essential personnel. Our Houston offices are also closed.

In the Eagle Ford, our personnel are assessing the impact from the recent storm, and we plan to start up production in some areas of the Eagle Ford. 

Offshore at our Magnolia platform in the Gulf of Mexico, production is unaffected. 


August 27, 2017 – 8:00 a.m.
Our operational status remains unchanged from yesterday. Our Eagle Ford operations are still suspended, and our production is shut-in. 

Offshore at our Magnolia platform in the Gulf of Mexico, production is unaffected.


August 26, 2017 – 8:30 a.m.
Our operational status remains unchanged from yesterday. Our Eagle Ford operations are still suspended, and our production is shut-in.

Offshore at our Magnolia platform in the Gulf of Mexico, production is unaffected. 


August 25, 2017 - 12:00 p.m.
Due to safety concerns associated with Hurricane Harvey, ConocoPhillips has released non-essential Eagle Ford personnel and closed its office in Kenedy, Texas.

Given the projected storm intensity, the focus on operational and personnel safety, and in response to offtake disruptions, we have also suspended all operations in the Eagle Ford and shut-in production.

Offshore, we have evacuated some personnel from our Magnolia platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

However, normal production continues at Magnolia, and at this time, we do not anticipate production changes.
