Community Investment

ConocoPhillips Australia is proud to be an active and valued member of the communities in which we operate.

Engaging Communities

Our investment in the community is driven by relationships, whether this be with our employees, our stakeholders or the communities in which we live and work. To build these relationships we work with charitable organisations to identify community needs, and to deliver strategic programs that meet these needs, and support our business outcomes.

We invest in programs through charitable contributions, community sponsorships, and via small grants to eligible grassroots organisations where our employees choose to volunteer.  We contribute time and financial support through our joint ventures as a continuous part of our commitment to address economic, environmental and social impacts of our business.

  • Environment (Water and Biodiversity Conversation)

Our Communities

In the Northern Territory we operate Darwin LNG which is supported by a corporate office and an operations centre in Perth, Western Australia.   In Queensland we are the downstream operator of Australia Pacific LNG with the corporate office located in Brisbane. We also invest in programs that benefit the community on a national level.   Additionally as the operator of the Bayu-Undan joint venture project, we have a strong relationship with the people and community of Timor-Leste.
