John Gregory attended college at Stevens Institute before joining the U.S. Navy. Gregory’s career then took him to Boeing, to work on gas turbines, before working for the Naval Research Lab starting in 1958. By 1977, Dick Krahl recruited Gregory to join the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to help make sure that offshore operations were done in accordance with the requirement that they use the "best available and safest technologies.” In the 1980s, as the USGS Conservation Division was merged into the new Minerals Management Service (MMS), Gregory helped establish a well-control test facility, or laboratory, at the Louisiana State University. Gregory stayed on with MMS for a distinguished civil service career and induction into the Ocean Energy industry Hall of Fame. Interviewer: Tyler Priest.
