CHC Group has signed a three-year contract with oil exploration and production company Point Resources to provide aviation services to its Balder, Ringhorne and Jotun fields in the Norwegian North Sea, 100 nm offshore.

“We have partnered with Point Resources for more than 50 years, flying with them for the first time in 1966,” says EMEA regional director Mark Abbey. “Such a long and valued partnership demonstrates the continued confidence in the service provided by our Norwegian team. As one of the leading helicopter service providers in Norway, this work allows us to continue to build on more than half a century of aviation experience supporting oil and gas customers on the Norwegian Continental Shelf as we continue to evolve our services and technology to best meet their needs.”

Under the terms of the contract, which will run until the end of 2021, CHC will provide a dedicated Sikorsky S-92 from its base at Sola, which will perform around ten flights a week.

“CHC has a proud history offering safe and reliable transportation to a variety of customers in EMEA,” says president and CEO Karl Fessenden. “We are eager to add new chapters to our history in the region, as we have seen success not only in the North Sea oil and gas space, but also providing SAR services and additional transport as far west as Ireland, as far south as Equatorial Guinea and as far east as Kazakhstan.”
