SPICING UP LIFE IN INDONESIA | In 2014, when the price of rubber plummeted, seven women whose husbands were rubber farmers sought to boost their families’ income. Through one year of training supported by ConocoPhillips, the women learned marketing and sales skills. Based on resources available in their village, they decided to produce banana chips (left), crackers made from cassava (right, a starchy root vegetable also known as yuca and manioc) and sambal (center), a pepper-based spice blend used in Indonesia to season catfish. Weekly, the women produce 60 kilos of crackers and 20 kilos of sambal for distribution to more than 250 outlets in Palembang, capital city of the South Sumatera province. The products will be available for purchase at the Asian Games 2018 in August. |  PHOTOGRAPHY BY PATRICK CURREY  | FEB. 2018

RISE AND SHINE, NIOBRARA | Dawn breaks over a dual-well pad in Watkins, Colo., marking the beginning of a new day in ConocoPhillips’ Niobrara asset in northeast Colorado. This impressionistic photo by Erika Castro, an asset control technician for ConocoPhillips, captures two of the company’s wells, State Harvard 1H and State Blanca 1H, in silhouette on Dec. 8. Erika, who used an iPhone 6s to take this picture, maintains inventory for wells in the Niobrara and central Rockies area in SAP. “Colorado has the most beautiful fall mornings and afternoons,” she said. “In the mornings, you have purple, pink, orange and red skies. It was gorgeous that day.” | Photography by Erika Castro | Jan. 2018

AN EAGLE'S-EYE VIEW | This aerial view of a Conoco­Phillips Eagle Ford drill site was taken with a Phantom 4Pro drone. With two wells in production, the pad is one of many that demonstrate the company’s commitment to reducing its footprint by using customized spacing and stacking patterns developed through reservoir understanding. The liquid-rich Eagle Ford tight oil trend, located in the Western Gulf Basin of South Texas, represents the company’s most prolific unconventional development. Conoco­Phillips was one of the first to the play, resulting in a low-cost entry into the acreage. The company began exploring Eagle Ford’s development potential in 2009. By year-end 2016, Conoco­Phillips held 213,000 net leasehold and mineral acres, primarily in DeWitt, Karnes and Live Oak Counties. | Photography by Salvador Garza | Third quarter 2017
