Notes
  1. HSE data is based on assets where we have operational control. Environmental data is represented as 100% ownership interest regardless of actual share owned by ConocoPhillips with acquisitions and divestitures reflected using the effective date of the transaction.
  2. To provide the most current and accurate data available, we have updated previously reported data for prior years as needed.
  3. Includes water withdrawn from saline/brackish groundwater aquifers and seawater.
  4. Includes produced water recycled for production (e.g., steam generation) or completions (e.g., hydraulic fracturing) and produced water reused for enhanced oil recovery.
  5. Payments to vendors and suppliers is an estimate based on Production and Operating Expenses and Capital Program. This reflects a methodology change versus the 2014 Sustainable Development report.
  6. As of December 31.
  7. Production data is average daily net production from continuing operations.
  8. Data is normalized using barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) from production operations, including gas plant liquid production of ethane, propane, butane and condensate and LNG production from third-party gas not accounted for in production operations. For gas production, 6,000 standard cubic feet of gas is assumed to equal one BOE.
REFERENCE: UNITS OF MEASURE

MBD - Thousands of Barrels per Day

MBOED - Thousands of Barrels of Oil Equivalent per Day

MMCFD - Millions of cubic feet per day. Represents quantities available for sale and excludes gas equivalent of natural gas liquids.

MMBTU - Millions of British Thermal Units
