ConocoPhillips Operations in Syria
In September 2011 ConocoPhillips, in partnership with the Syrian Petroleum Corporation and TotalFinaElf, completed a new integrated natural gas project known as 'Desgas' in the Deir Ez Zour region of Syria. In 1998 the parties signed a $430 million service agreement for development of the project. The complex utilized previously-flared, 'associated' natural gas from the Deir Ez Zour oil fields, with Conoco as lead operator.
. ConocoPhillips announced in February 2004 that it intended to end its operations at Deir ez-Zour in the future.
