We have a long and proud history in Alaska. As the state’s largest oil and gas producer, we have been a significant player in exploration and development in Alaska for over 50 years. Using innovative ideas and the latest technology, we continue to seek new and better ways to responsibly deliver Alaska’s energy potential.
Our primary North Slope assets include the ConocoPhillips operated Kuparuk and Alpine fields. Additionally, we have significant interests in the Prudhoe Bay field and the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System. With the development of the CD5 drill site, we are working to expand our Alpine field to the west, across a channel of the Colville River, to become the first company to commercially produce oil from within the boundaries of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska (NPR-A). In addition, we are continuing efforts to develop the Greater Mooses Tooth Unit located entirely within the NPR-A.
We are also working with the State of Alaska, the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation and affiliates of ExxonMobil, TransCanada and BP, to progress commercialization of North Slope natural gas through the proposed $45 to $65 billion (gross) Alaska LNG Project.
We place the highest priority on the care and protection of the environment. The harsh arctic conditions create unique challenges – and opportunities. Over the years, we have developed innovative technologies that minimize our effect on this unique land. We also work to ensure that Alaskans benefit from our efforts – not only in the form of a solid economy, but also through contributions to communities and education.
Alaska is a very special place, and we work with the local residents near our operations as well as local, state and federal leaders to make sure that responsible oil and gas development helps to build a solid future for Alaskans and supply the energy needs of America.
