Centrica secures North Sea helicopter needs
Centrica Energy and Centrica Storage Ltd. have awarded CHC Helicopter a three-year contract for helicopter services in the North Sea.
The $45-million contract has options for a two-year extension.
In the southern North Sea, CHC will operate an AW139 aircraft out of Humberside Airport on the English east coast from November. This will support Centrica’s offshore activities, including theYork and Rough platforms, as the operator relocates all its flight operations from Great Yarmouth.
In the northern and central North Sea, Centrica Energy has secured use of aircraft out of Aberdeen from this month on a part-exclusive basis, to improve scheduling and flexibility of flights to the company’s Kittiwake platform.
A joint Centrica/CHC will work to increase the number of flights, improve service efficiency, and secure dedicated flights to installations.
