ConocoPhillips has operated in Europe for more than 50 years, with significant developments in the United Kingdom and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea. The company also has an interest in a concession in Libya.
Operated assets 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 conducts exploration activity in both Norway and the United Kingdom.
The company has leveraged its existing operations, infrastructure and basin expertise to create incremental growth projects in recent years, and development opportunities still exist in ConocoPhillips’ legacy areas in the North Sea.
After 45 years of production from the Southern North Sea the focus of activity has now changed to decommissioning, beginning with the Viking area, which ceased production in 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.
