Helicopter provider CHC Group has signed a three-year contract with oil and gas company Point Resources, providing aviation services to the company’s operated Balder, Ringhorne and Jotun fields in the Norwegian North Sea, 100nm offshore.
CHC said on Tuesday that the contract would run until the end of 2021.
The company will provide a dedicated sole use Sikorsky S-92 aircraft for this operation based at Sola, flying around ten flights per week.
“We have partnered with Point Resources for more than 50 years, flying with them for the first time in 1966,” Mark Abbey, CHC Regional Director Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
“Such a long and valued partnership demonstrates the continued confidence in the service provided by our Norwegian team.”
Karl Fessenden, President and CEO of CHC Helicopter, said: “We are eager to continue to add new chapters to our history in the region, as we have had seen success not only in the North Sea oil and gas space, but also providing search and rescue services and additional transport as far west as Ireland, as far South as Equatorial Guinea, and as far east as Kazakhstan.”
