A Global COVID-19 Response to Help Support the Oil, Gas and Seismic Industry

COVID-19 presented complex challenges to industries around the globe, forcing teams to quickly pivot and implement new safety regulations to help prevent potential outbreaks. For the oil, gas and seismic industry, this required an agile and unique response to rapidly alter guidelines and recommendations, in order to fit the needs of an off-shore environment.

Much of this support came from the UnitedHealthcare Global Virtual Health Service physician team, part of Global Solutions and based in the United Kingdom. Dr. Alex Rowe, an associate medical director, said their main focus was to keep these offshore workers safe, reduce the impact of potential outbreaks, and maintain operations for an essential industry. He shares insights, challenges, and lessons learned from navigating the COVID-19 pandemic in this challenging landscape.
