The Lower 48 represents the largest segment in ConocoPhillips today based on production. The company has high-quality positions in the North American unconventionals, which are low cost of supply assets with significant upside potential.

The company’s large onshore Lower 48 position of 10.3 million net acres, much of it held by production, gives access to scalable, low cost of supply inventory that can generate substantial future production growth. The Lower 48 segment is comprised of two regions covering the Gulf Coast and Great Plains. Current major focus areas for the Lower 48 include the Eagle Ford, Bakken and Permian Basin.

In early 2020, the company sold its Niobrara assets in Colorado and its Waddell Ranch assets in the Permian Basin.
