ConocoPhillips United Kingdom

Our History

London, United Kingdom

ConocoPhillips has had activities in the United Kingdom since 1964, when acreage was awarded to the company in the first licensing round. In 1968, the Viking gas field was discovered and first gas was produced in 1972. Since then the U.K. portfolio has grown to include additional operated and nonoperated assets.


The Hutton TLP was christened in 1984 as the industry’s first tension leg platform in the North Sea.

In 1988 the V-fields were developed in the North Sea and the Lincolnshire Offshore Gas Gathering System (LOGGS) to transport gas from the V-fields to the Viking terminal at Theddlethorpe (now called the Theddlethorpe gas terminal).
