ConocoPhillips Global Aviation
ConocoPhillips operates flight service for employees and contractors between Anchorage and Alaska’s North Slope, located 600 miles away.
Nearly 700 North/South and 5,000 East/West passenger flights take place every year, delivering workers to two ConocoPhillips North Slope oilfields, Kuparuk and Alpine.
For 36 years, ConocoPhillips operated Boeing aircraft to Kuparuk and Prudhoe Bay and transported passengers west to Alpine in a Shared Services model. In 2020, the organization completed an operations model transition providing direct flights to Kuparuk and Alpine on De Havilland Q400s. The Q400 aircraft comfortably carries 60 passengers having been modified to increase legroom and storage. Q400 operations to Kuparuk began in May 2020, and the first-ever direct flights from Anchorage to Alpine are scheduled to begin in November 2020.
The East-West aviation operation provides passenger transport, cargo/freight capabilities, medical transport, and FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared) flights to service the needs of the North Slope oil and gas operations. The fleet includes a CASA C-212 and the De Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter.
The mission of the aviation group is to provide the safest and most efficient transportation, freight, and aviation service support for oil industry operations. ConocoPhillips Global Aviation includes pilots, flight attendants, gate agents, maintenance, and logistics personnel. The three Q400s are be based out of the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport at a COP-operated hangar facility. The 15-passenger Twin Otter and the 18-passenger CASA used for east-west transport and freight are based at the Alpine field. Both aircraft also assist with cargo, medical evacuations, freight, pipeline patrol, emergency response, survey work and ice strip operations.
