Although security risks can never be fully eliminated, we believe they can be effectively managed. We have taken comprehensive steps and invested heavily to address potential threats to our operations around the world. Through systematic security audits by specially trained personnel, we continuously monitor and assess our compliance globally with security regulations, company security policies and the potential for malicious action and implement a variety of preventive measures to provide for the safety and security of our personnel and operations.

As an operator of critical infrastructure in many challenging locations worldwide, we work closely with governmental agencies, nongovernmental organizations, our peers and local communities on initiatives to identify, prevent and mitigate potential terrorist attacks and other threats to company personnel and facilities. Our facilities are compliant with the:

  • Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards
  • Maritime Transportation Security Act
  • Hazmat Transportation Security requirements
  • International Ship and Port Facility Security Code
  • U.S. Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism standards
  • Maritime Transport and Facilities Security Regulations (Australia)
  • All other applicable governmental security requirements

We maintain a Tier Three status in the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program by demonstrating effective security that exceeds the minimum program criteria. Our program examines categories of company procedures intended to maintain the integrity and security of the international supply chain. This effort is conducted through on-site visits and procedural reviews by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials who assess the overall effectiveness of our security processes. 

We remain an active, participating member of the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), with the ConocoPhillips Chief Security Officer presently fulfilling the private sector co-chair position. We are also a founding member and leadership board member of the Domestic Security Alliance Council (DSAC)
