ConocoPhillips to Acquire Burlington Resources

December 13, 2005

Already one of the most aggressive spenders on future supplies, ConocoPhillips (COP) CEO James J. Mulva is now poised to make another huge deal: a $30-billion plus acquisition of Burlington Resources (BR), according to a Business Week report. Buying BR would be a giant bet on a red-hot U.S. natural gas market. While Burlington has international operations in Algeria, China, and Latin America, 84% of its reserves are in North America. With U.S. gas prices at record highs, ConocoPhillips is betting that supplies will remain tight for many years, according to the report. The move by ConocoPhillips would round out its expansion strategy. The company recently added capital spending to boost output at its U.S. refineries but has also been making giant international investments in Russia's Lukoil and production projects in Venezuela and Australia.
