ConocoPhillips issued this statement this afternoon in response to this morning's hearing on its four proposed Highway 12 megaloads:

"ConocoPhillips agrees with the administrative judge overseeing today’s hearing that a decision in this matter is long overdue and are pleased that he signaled a decision will be made before Thanksgiving. We are very confident in our plan to safely and responsibly transport our four loads from Lewiston to Billings. We hope that the outcome of today’s hearing will result in a decision that will allow us to begin to transport our equipment very soon."
