Update: Sheens Peng Lai 19-3 Oilfield

July 6, 2011

BEIJING - An oil sheen was discovered on the surface of the Bohai Bay Peng Lai 19-3 Oilfield in June. The operator ConocoPhillips China Inc (COPC), a subsidiary of ConocoPhillips [NYSE: COP] immediately activated its response procedure and deployed equipment and personnel for containment and clean-up. The source of the oil spill has been effectively contained in a short time and the sheen clean-up is close to completion. There have been no injuries, No reports of the sheen migrating to the shoreline.

On July 5th, the SOA held a press conference to review actions taken by ConocoPhillips China (COPC), the operator of Peng Lai 19-3 field, and its co-venturer, CNOOC, related to oil sheens in Bohai Bay, China in June.

We are committed to working with the SOA, other relevant authorities and CNOOC, and to operating safely and responsibly. ConocoPhillips and CNOOC are reviewing the SOA’s recommendations.

At ConocoPhillips we believe that any spill of oil in the water is too much and we are committed to minimum discharge to the environment.

Below is an update on actions taken by COPC to address two separate events related to the oil sheens in Bohai Bay.

The first event, a sheen associated with a slow, intermittent seep, was discovered on June 4 near the ConocoPhillips-operated Peng Lai B Platform. This seepage has stopped. Upon observing the sheen, ConocoPhillips took prompt action, promptly reporting the incident to Chinese authorities and activating response procedures. Actions included the deployment of equipment and trained personnel to contain and clean-up the sheen. Divers examined the site and traced the seepage as coming from a natural fault in the seabed.

In the second incident, another sheen was observed on June 17 near the Peng Lai C Platform. A leak was detected from an existing well, and was repaired within 48 hours with a cementing procedure, which secured the well. There is no leak, and cleanup work continues.

This incident is not comparable to the 2010 incident in the Gulf of Mexico – as it was not a well blowout, there were no injuries, and the volumes released were dramatically lower. In addition, these events took place in shallow water (90 feet), so we were able to promptly contain and clean-up the sheens.

COPC promptly notified relevant authorities promptly after each event, together with COPC's co-venturer CNOOC Ltd., which has actively supported COPC's response.

Currently there is no oil sheen in the Bohai Bay operating area, the source of the sheen has been contained and clean-up work is close to completion. There have been no injuries. No reports of the sheen migrating to the shoreline. The clean-up work was performed under the supervision and guidance of supervisory authorities.

The cause of both incidents is currently under investigation.

ConocoPhillips is committed to protecting the health and safety of everyone who plays a role in our operations, lives in the communities in which we operate, or uses our products.
