CHC Helicopters to transport Statoil’s workers to offshore rig in Canada

Norwegian oil giant Statoil has awarded CHC Helicopters Canada Inc. a contract to provide vital helicopter transportation to Statoil’s new exploration rig in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Newfoundland.

The 18-month contract calls for CHC Canada to operate two Sikorsky S-92 aircraft on behalf of Statoil. The helicopters will fly between their home base in St. John’s, Newfoundland, where CHC Canada is establishing a local presence, and Statoil’s West Hercules rig. The service is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2014.

“Statoil and CHC Helicopter, a service provider to CHC Canada, have extensive experience working together to assure safe operations in the North Sea – knowledge that CHC Canada will apply as it meets Statoil’s requirements off Newfoundland, where weather and sea conditions are similar,” CHC Canada said in a press release.
