Job Summary

Alaska Overview

ConocoPhillips is Alaska’s largest crude oil producer and largest owner of exploration leases, with approximately 1.2 million net undeveloped acres at year-end 2022. The company produced an average of 200 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2022. ConocoPhillips has major ownership interests in two of North America’s largest legacy conventional oil fields, both located on Alaska’s North Slope: Kuparuk, which the company operates, and Prudhoe Bay. Additionally, ConocoPhillips operates several fields on the Western North Slope. The company has an ownership interest in the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) and owns/operates the Polar Tankers fleet.

Western North Slope Overview

The Western North Slope encompasses the Colville River Unit (Alpine), its satellite fields and the Greater Mooses Tooth Unit.

Alpine Overview

The Alpine Field, located approximately 34 miles west of Kuparuk, is one of the largest conventional onshore oil fields developed in North America in the past 25 years. Alpine is a model for future oil developments as directional drilling and other innovations minimize its environmental footprint. Field installations include one central production facility that separates oil, natural gas, and water.

In 2022, net crude oil production was 30 MBOED.

Alpine Satellites Overview

The Alpine satellites fields consist of the Fiord, Nanuq and Qannik. All satellite fields are produced through the Alpine facilities. In 2016, approval was received to construct an extended-reach drilling (ERD) rig to access the western extension of the Fiord Field. The rig was delivered to the Alpine CD2 drill site in 2020 and commenced drilling operations in June 2021. As North America’s largest mobile land rig, it is capable of drilling lateral lengths to more than seven miles and is expected to enhance resource recovery and minimize the surface footprint of development. The wells are being drilled from a 5.8-acre expansion of the CD2 drill site. In May 2022, Fiord West Kuparuk achieved its first production.

In 2022, net crude oil production was 30 MBOED.

Greater Mooses Tooth Overview

The Greater Mooses Tooth (GMT) Unit, the first unit established entirely within the National Petroleum Reserve Alaska (NPR-A), was formed in 2008. In 2017, the company began construction in the unit with two drill sites, GMT1 and GMT2. GMT1 achieved its first production in 2018. It is connected to the CD5 processing facilities by gravel roads and pipelines. GMT2, the North Slope’s westernmost producing field, achieved its first oil in 2021. The drill site is connected by road and pipeline to GMT1 and has development plans for 36 wells initially, with capacity for up to 48 wells.

In 2022, net crude oil production was 14 MBOED.
