ConocoPhillips Corporate Museums

Oklahoma, USA.

To celebrate its pioneering role in the US oil industry, and tie in with the State’s centenary, the US oil company ‘ConocoPhillips’ spent $10 million developing two new company museums in Oklahoma. The company’s CEO, James Mulva, described the museums as capturing  “the rich history of the old Phillips and Conoco companies and recognizing the richness of the support of the communities, and involvement of so many Oklahomans.”

We worked with the UK design company Haley Sharpe to develop a series of integrated media programmes for the galleries in both museums. These included 15 touchscreen interactive programmes (designs from which can be seen below), exploring everything from the development of Gas Station design to the history of the company’s basketball team. We also produced a range of video and audio programmes, mixing specially shot material with existing archive, as well as two large-format theatre-based shows, which used multiple projectors to create a stunning, widescreen presentations.

We also developed an animated history of the development of the complex, interconnected offshore facilities in the Ekofisk field in the North Sea, which can be seen at the bottom of this page.
