Offshore helicopter operator CHC Group has signed a two-year contract extension with Shell to provide helicopter services in support of the oil company’s UK Continental Shelf operations.
According to the helicopter operator’s statement on Tuesday, CHC has been Shell’s aviation partner for five years, initially serving Shell Central North Sea assets.
As part of a joint initiative to improve supply chain efficiencies over the contract period, CHC service now also extends to Shell’s Northern North Sea activities, the company said.
“We are delighted with this contract extension,” said Mark Abbey, CHC Regional Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Karl Fessenden, President and CEO of CHC Helicopter, added: “CHC is proud to continue to strive to provide safe and reliable transportation services to Shell in and around the North Sea as part of our global service for Shell and we look forward to continuing our relationship based on safety, efficiency and value.”
