Helicopter transportation services provider HNZ Group has secured a new, multi-year contract to provide helicopter services to support ExxonMobil Canada and Encana Corporation’s activities offshore Nova Scotia, Canada.

The company said on Thursday it will supply two Sikorsky S-92 helicopters for a term of three years beginning late in the second quarter of 2017.

“We are pleased to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working with each of the operators,” said Don Wall, President and CEO of HNZ Group.

The service provider noted that helicopter transportation is integral to supporting day-to-day operations of the Sable offshore energy project and the Deep Panuke project, both of which are natural gas production facilities located approximately 200 kilometers from shore.

Encana’s Deep Panuke project produces and processes natural gas from the Deep Panuke field, approximately 250 kilometers (155 miles) southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia on the Scotian Shelf. Natural gas from Deep Panuke is processed offshore and transported, via subsea pipeline, to Goldboro, Nova Scotia for further transport to market via the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline.

Exxon’s Sable offshore energy project has been producing natural gas and liquids since 1999. It involves the development of five natural gas fields near Sable Island which is located approximately 225 km off the east coast of Nova Scotia.
