COP’s disposition-adjusted production comparison

ConocoPhillips’s (COP) 4Q16 production (USO) (UNG) of 1,587 Mboepd (thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day) is ~3% higher than its 4Q15 disposition-adjusted production of 1,542 Mboepd.

In the last year, ConocoPhillips’s dispositions reflect the impact from asset sales in the Lower 48, Canada, Polar Lights, and Alaska. Due to these dispositions, COP’s production was impacted by 70 Mboepd in the last year.

Lower downtime in 4Q16 contributed positively to the quarter’s production by 13 Mboepd. When adjusted for dispositions and downtime, COP’s 4Q16 production is higher by 45 Mboepd.
