Employees working at a ConocoPhillips site (Alpine, Kuparuk or GMT2):
Testing, Masking, Vaccine Requirements at COPA Sites:
September 22- Testing prior to Obtaining Boarding Pass
Beginning Wednesday, September 22, ConocoPhillips will require that northbound workers, including vendors, contractors and sub-contractors supporting Alaska Wells take a COVID-19 test at the Anchorage airport and receive a negative result prior to receiving their boarding pass. This requirement will apply regardless of vaccination status. The recent uptick in case count has led us to implement this additional layer of defense to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
Please go to the Beacon location at the airport for testing prior to travel to the North Slope. Once a negative test is received, workers will be issued a wrist band. Those working in support of Drilling and Wells should wear the band throughout the day of arrival as Alaska Wells management will use this as a monitoring tool for verification purposes.
Aug 4- Masks Mandatory
Beginning on Wednesday, Aug. 4, all employees, contractors, and visitors will be expected to wear face coverings in common areas and when social distancing is not possible (examples include lobbies, hallways, cafeterias, wellness centers, conference rooms and elevators).
The PPP program has been eliminated and replaced with COPA’s Safe Access Plan which highlights the effective mitigations that we have in place to manage COVID at Kuparuk. There are no longer any mitigations in place that are specific to people that have recently been out of state.
Antigen Testing Exemption:
ConocoPhillips will exempt fully vaccinated asymptomatic individuals from the mandatory pre-travel testing program with evidence of full vaccination at the time of screening. Fully vaccinated means two weeks after the final dose of your vaccination course. The exemption will be managed in conjunction with the screening and testing conducted by CPAI’s contracted service providers, and an individual’s vaccination status will not be reported to the company. Please bring a copy of your vaccination card or a legible photo of the front and back of your card if you would like to take advantage of the exemption.
