Employees working at an Oil Search Alaska Location:
As of March 20, 2020: In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to its North Slope operations, OSA has announced the following steps to reduce exposure to the virus for those who are working on the North Slope. Please note that there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on the North Slope at this time.
- Beginning today, if you are not already in
place on the North Slope and if you or a member of your household has traveled
anywhere outside Alaska in the past 14 days, you will NOT be allowed access to OSA
North Slope operations.
- This includes, but is not limited to, anyone who lives in the Lower 48 and travels to work on the North Slope.
- Please speak with your OSA supervisor and/or your contracted company supervisor for guidance on travel, possible self-quarantine, and issues related to your role during the remainder of this winter’s OSA work program.
- Additionally, all workers traveling to the
North Slope from anywhere within Alaska are REQUIRED to undergo health
screenings. Proof of screening will be issued.
- Pre-board health-screenings are required at the Ted Stevens International Airport in Anchorage and at the Fairbanks airport for all North Slope workers travelling to OSA operations.
- Health screenings are also available at the
Fairweather health clinic in the Deadhorse Aviation Center and at the OSA
medical clinics detailed below.
- Anyone in Deadhorse planning to travel to an Oil Search location who has not been screened, should be screened at the Deadhorse Aviation Center (DAC) prior to leaving Deadhorse.
- All workers currently within an OSA operations area with roles that require visits to operations run by other operators (ConocoPhillips, ENI, etc.), MUST be screened at one of the OSA clinic locations prior to travel.
- Proof of screening issued on behalf of OSA should be valid for 14 days.
- If you cannot provide valid proof of
screening, you are likely to be detained at any guard shack you encounter as
you cross into neighboring operating areas.
- NOTE: This does not apply to those who were in the field prior to the start of screening and who are traveling directly from Oil Search operational areas to Deadhorse for transport off the slope.
- Failure to comply may result in adverse employment action for OSA employees and release of contractors.
- AES has obtained hotel discounts for anyone who chooses to remain in Alaska, and will post updates on www.asrcenergy.com/covid and https://www.asrcenergy.com/field-employees.
- All employees who cannot work will be placed on leave without pay for two weeks. There will be no interruption in AES benefits.

OSA understands that these actions will significantly affect contractors like us. Both AES and OSA are in the process of sorting out the many questions employees will have. Please contact your supervisor with your questions, and please be patient as we work on answers to all of the issues. As we do not have a line of sight into how long this event will last, please know that both AES and Conoco have the safety of our employees as our number one priority. We know this is a difficult time for all, but please continue to focus on safe operations.
As we move through this, OSA wants to emphasize that it is committed to the safety, health and wellness of our workforce. We appreciate OSA’s commitment to safety and the hard work and dedication of the AES workforce.
