Who we are
Projects supports the company’s major projects around the world – primarily those with a capital investment greater than $50 million – that strengthen our global position. From concept to construction, Projects works hand-in-hand with the business managing risks, engineering, procurement and construction. To compete in the current market, Projects must execute complex projects using new technology and strict environmental standards while managing the impact of rising costs and intense competition for resources.
How you can contribute
Opportunities in Projects generally begin with the Summit Program, an accelerated development program for new engineering and construction management graduates. The 12-month program includes an intensive summer training program followed by a nine-month assignment on a capital project team. The training includes an overview of the energy industry and ConocoPhillips’ operations worldwide, followed by a deep dive into “The ConocoPhillips Way” of leading major capital projects.
How you can grow
Summit Program participants also have the opportunity to develop networks with peers and technical experts, build teamwork skills critical to project team success, and benefit from mentoring relationships. After the initial 12-month program, Summit engineers should have the opportunity to work with projects in a business unit, rotate through additional technical assignments in operations or begin work on a capital project team.
What we’re looking for
Career opportunities within Projects exist for chemical, mechanical, electrical and civil engineering disciplines, as well as construction management.
