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 aligned with regulatory reporting requirements. To provide the most current and accurate data available, we have updated previously reported data for prior years as needed.
  2. Includes CO2 from operations, methane (CO2 equivalent), Nitrous Oxide (CO2 equivalent).
  3. Includes marine and aviation support operations.
  4. Scope 1 and scope 2 emissions divided by sales and other operating revenues.
  5. Based on World Resources Institute Aqueduct Risk Atlas water stress mapping layer as of December 31, 2019.
  6. Includes water withdrawn from saline/brackish groundwater aquifers and seawater.
  7. Includes produced water recycled for production (e.g. steam generation) or completions (e.g. hydraulic fracturing) and produced water reused for enhanced oil recovery.
  8. Calculated using RS Energy Group data for the average volume of freshwater (bbl) divided by the average estimated ultimate recovery (EUR, BOE) as of June 4, 2020. Intensity value may change as EUR data is updated.
  9. Calculated using the average volume of freshwater (bbl) divided by the average annual production (BOE).
  10. Operated lease area overlapping with IUCN I-VI protected areas based on Protected Planet World Database on Protected Areas accessed on December 31, 2019.
  11. Cumulative acreage includes impact avoidance, grassland and wetland restoration, habitat conservation, biodiversity offsets and voluntary conservation areas.
  12. Operated assets with species observed or known to occur based on IUCN Red List of Threatened Species mapping tool accessed on December 31, 2019.
  13. All but one of the Arctic releases over five years were to gravel pads.
  14. Payments to vendors and suppliers is an estimate based on Production and Operating Expenses and Capital Program.
  15. As of December 31, 2019.
  16. Production data is average daily net production from continuing operations.
  17. 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.
  18. In the 20 lowest ranked countries per Transparency International's Corruption Perception Index.
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.
