Conoco Museum

The Conoco Museum in Ponca City Oklahoma celebrates the history of Conoco Inc., from its beginnings as a kerosene distributor through to becoming an international energy empire.

The petroleum industry has shaped Ponca City and Conoco has played a significant part in this. When Conoco merged with Phillips Petroleum in 2002 to become ConocoPhillips, the new company commissioned two museums (one in each city) to tell the stories of each company up to the point of merger. This museum is not just of the company but of the people who created the company, and therefore also the city. These museums, in towns 70 miles apart were built and opened simultaneously.

Haley Sharpe Design appointed D J Willrich Ltd to provide lighting design and audio visual consultancy on both museums. DJW designed the AV and lighting systems as well as being responsible for preparing bid documentation and appointing the local AV contractor. DJW then project managed the installation to ensure that the project was delivered in accordance with the design goals of the client and design team.

DJW performed this same service for the Phillips Petroleum Company Museum in Bartlesville, achieving excellent results on both sites.
