About this Podcast...

In this exclusive interview, Oil & Gas IQ speaks with Jerome De La Cruz, Alaska North Slope Asset & Operating Integrity Supervisor at ConocoPhillips, about the unique asset integrity challenges presented by one of the world’s most remote and inhospitable locations.

Jerome has experience across the United States, as well as in the UAE and Norway on operating assets and facilities engineering. Jerome began his career with ARCO Oil & Gas in Houston, Texas in 1985.

He held a number of facilities and production engineering positions before joining Conoco in New Orleans, Louisiana where, for the next 10 years, he held a number of facilities and project engineering and supervisor positions allowing him to develop a holistic perspective on asset and operating integrity.

In the course of his interview, Jerome touches on:

  • · The specific challenges encountered on North Slope given adverse weather conditions and treacherous geography
  • · Regulatory concerns to be aware of in a wilderness area containing protected sites such as the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
  • · Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI): the scourge of the asset integrity manager
  • · What an operator in a totally different sphere of oil and gas production could learn from the Alaska experience
