The following is a transcript of an introductory video of ConocoPhillips
that was first posted on Burlintgon Resources Inc.'s intranet web site on
December 21, 2005.


What drives someone to go deeper, farther, faster, to venture into the
unknown, battling hostile climates, testing the outer limits, to explore
the unexplored, to do what others said couldn't be done. It takes a
pioneering spirit, a spirit that has always been found in the people of

Today our company is the third-largest integrated energy company in the
United States, the largest refiner in North America, and the fourth-largest
refiner in the world. We got here by being good at what we do, and by
continuously finding new ways to be even better. At our operations in more
than 40 countries we're building long-term relationships and taking
advantage of opportunities that come from being a truly integrated energy
company - from exploration and production, to refining and marketing,
supply and transportation, plus chemicals and plastics. The integration of
our businesses makes us a stronger, more flexible company, and it provides
us more options when it comes to implementing our strategy of growing our
upstream and downstream operations, and using our commercial trading
expertise to market energy solutions to the world.

The diversity of our assets is complemented by our large, diverse employee
base. This diversity enables us to optimize our efforts globally, to
innovate and develop new technologies, and continue our role as an industry
pioneer with a history of doing things the world thought couldn't be done.

Being a pioneer means getting there first - the first American oil company
to use seismography, the first to build a long-distance oil and gas
pipeline, the first to develop a drill ship for offshore exploration, the
world's first multi-viscosity motor oil, the first oil company approved to
explore in Alaska, and the first to discover a major oil field in Europe. A
pioneer searches for a better way - retailing gasoline and lubricant
products around the world, engineering the first tension-leg platform to
open up deepwater exploration, patenting a new geophysical prospecting tool
called "Vibroseis" that is still used around the world today, and inventing
new technologies like the S-Sorb sulphur removal process - a cost-effective
way for retailers to meet or surpass world mandates for environmentally
friendly fuels. From drilling the world's deepest hole, to raising aviation
performance to new heights, we have a history of doing things the world
thought couldn't be done. Our efforts have led to a host of legendary

Since the beginning our people have overcome impossible odds to achieve the
improbable. Nothing illustrates this more than Ekofisk.

In 1969, after drilling a series of dry holes off the coast of Norway, hope
for finding oil in the North Sea was diminishing. Following their
instincts, the Ekofisk team convinced management to drill one more well -
and the rest is history. The world's newest energy frontier became the site
of one of the industry's first megaprojects, and the first giant oil field
in Western Europe. A technological triumph, Ekofisk was the largest
offshore complex in the world. Never before had oil and gas been recovered
from water so deep, in an area so prone to violent storms. Yet for this
"city in the sea," the greatest challenge still lay ahead. In 1987,
subsidence of the seabed underneath the production facilities threatened
the future of the project. The Ekofisk team responded by staging one of the
most ambitious feats in engineering history - elevating the mile-long
network of offshore platforms at a cost of $400 million, and involving more
than 15,000 people. Besides extending the life of the field, the Ekofisk
jack-up proved that our "can-do" spirit could prevail against the most
insurmountable of obstacles.

In 1951, while doing research to produce high-performance gasoline
additives, two young chemists discovered a mysterious taffy-like substance
clogging up their catalyst tubes. It was crystalline polypropylene. Their
discovery led to further experiments and the invention of high-density
polyethylene. By creating a tougher, more heat-resistant material, they had
scored a historic breakthrough - the discovery of the first modern
plastics. Before long, manufacturers were buying up all they could to
produce everything from containers for household goods to hula hoops. For
their legendary achievement, Paul Hogan and Bob Banks were inducted into
the national Inventors Hall of Fame in 2001, joining the likes of Edison,
Bell, Marconi and the Wright brothers.

In 1992, as the Cold War was fading into memory, our pioneering spirit took
us where few American companies had gone before - Russia. In a remote
region above the Arctic Circle, Polar Lights was the first joint oil field
venture between American and Russian companies. The unique ecology of the
Arctic tundra required a delicate touch, as did the negotiations with the
new government. The venture put ConocoPhillips on the map in Russia and
broke new ground, politically and technologically.

In the tropics of South America, in the Zuata region of eastern Venezuela,
lies the Orinoco heavy-oil belt, site of the largest known deposit of
hydrocarbons in the world, with recoverable reserves estimated to exceed
270 billion barrels of heavy crude oil. In their extra-heavy form, the
reserves were of limited value. Partnering with the National Oil Company of
Venezuela, in two joint ventures named Petrozuata and Hamaca, our people
went to work to find a way to transform the heavy crude into lighter, more
valuable synthetic crude. Drawing upon the synergies of being an integrated
energy company, we brought our experience and expertise to the projects to
drill the wells, construct the pipelines, and design and build the
upgrading facilities. In 2001, Petrozuata marked the first commercial
production of extra-heavy crude oil in Venezuela. At its facility on
Venezuela's northeastern coast, Petrozuata uses our proprietary refining
technology to upgrade the heavy oil into lighter synthetic crude, and
produce fuels and lubricants for both domestic use and export. Some of the
synthetic crude oil is transported by tanker to our Lake Charles refinery
in Louisiana, and used as a feedstock for fuels and specialty products.
Over its 35-year operating life, Petrozuata is expected to recover 1.6
billion barrels of extra-heavy crude oil, while providing thousands of jobs
for local residents. Committed to the success of the project and the
community, our people build schools and affordable housing, and help the
local economy branch out with a new tree farm business. Petrozuata opened
up a new frontier of opportunity for Venezuela, and the Hamaca project is
building on this success, providing a new source of reliable energy for the

During the 1960s, the country of Japan experienced a period of accelerated
growth causing its consumption of energy to skyrocket. Lacking significant
domestic sources of energy, Japan was forced to look outside its borders.
To help Japan meet its growing demand for clean-burning fuels,
ConocoPhillips launched the first major liquefied natural gas project in
the world in 1969 - the largest undertaking in company history at the time.
The LNG project involved developing and transporting natural gas from
Alaska to Japanese consumers and power plants 3,000 miles away. By
connecting the gas-rich of Alaska's Cook Inlet to a liquefaction plant we
constructed on the Kenai Peninsula, we pumped the super-cooled gas into
insulated tankers for the long voyage to Japan. Today our people continue
to take advantage of this vital technology for moving the world's energy to
the people who need it.

In the rough North Sea waters off the Shetland coast, the quest for oil was
on, but new reserves lay trapped under deeper and deeper water. Scientific
wisdom at the time considered the cost of drilling in deep water too great.
Undeterred, our engineers and scientists went to work to find a way to
reach the hidden riches that eluded them. Searching for an alternative to
costly fixed platforms, engineer Buck Curtis and his team attempted to do
something that had never been done - develop a platform that floated on the
surface of the ocean, tethered to the seabed by tubular steel legs. Calling
their idea a tension-leg platform, or TLP, the team worked to transfer the
concept from paper to steel as the world watched. Built to withstand
100-mile-per-hour winds, and 100-foot waves, the world's first TLP came
onstream in 1984, and the North Sea once again served as the proving ground
for one of the industry's most important technological breakthroughs. The
thinking and perseverance that went into the TLP pushed us to the forefront
of deepwater technology. Twenty years later, our people are adapting TLP
technology for use in waters 4,000 feet deep and beyond, putting reserves
once out of our reach within our grasp.

Our search for oil and gas has taken us to some of the world's most
challenging and pristine environments. Two hundred and fifty miles above
the Arctic Circle, located on Alaska's North Slope, is Alpine - the largest
U.S. onshore oil discovery in more than a decade. To protect the fragile
ecosystem surrounding the field, ice roads are constructed in the winter to
allow transportation of equipment and drilling supplies. And when spring
arrives, any trace of roadway has melted, leaving the fragile tundra

We're proud to have been the first company granted permission to search for
oil in Alaska over half a century ago. Our Alpine project has become a
model for responsible resource development. From the Arctic to the Tropics,
our people go to great lengths to produce energy with minimal environmental

Once that energy is produced, we're finding safer ways to transport it. A
400-foot gash in the side of an oil tanker would have meant disaster for an
ordinary vessel, but not for the Guardian. Built as part of our
environmental initiative to use only double-hulled tankers, the Guardian
puts an additional barrier between its cargo and the sea. When the Guardian
was rammed in 1997, and its outer hull ripped open, not a single drop of
the half million barrels of crude oil on board was spilled - not one drop.
As our double-hulled tankers traverse the world's waterways, we take pride
in knowing that we're helping to protect the world for future generations.

Leaders in refining technologies around the world, we're continually
applying our refining knowledge and expertise in innovative ways in our
quest to develop environmentally friendly fuels, because at ConocoPhillips
we believe finding better and safer ways to do what we do is good for
business and the environment.

Our people are proud of where we've been and what we've accomplished. But
we're more excited about the future and the potential for greater
achievements ahead. At ConocoPhillips we're not working to be the biggest,
we're working to be the best - by being tough, agile, disciplined and
smart. We're one of the world's leading integrated energy companies. As we
strive to build a better, stronger company, we place high value on our
tradition of fostering lasting relationships around the world, partnering
with companies and countries to lay cornerstones to build on for decades to

At ConocoPhillips, we'll continue to venture forth into new frontiers to
find and deliver energy to the world. We've got the technology; we've got
the financial resources; and we've got the people - people with pioneering
spirit who do the things the world thought couldn't be done.
