Bristow builds bond with BP for North Sea ops
Bristow has recently secured long-term contracts for projects operating from Aberdeen. Now it is deepening its relationship with BP, wining a five-year deal to provide Sikorskys and fixed wing support in the North Sea.

Bristow Group has entered into a new five-year primary term contract with BP to support its North Sea operations.

Bristow will deliver a fully integrated aviation solution to BP from bases in Aberdeen and Sumburgh. New pilot and crew positions are being created to deliver the contract, with existing Sikorsky S-92s being utilised alongside fixed-wing support provided through Eastern Airways.

“We recognise BP has placed its trust and confidence in us, and we are committed to maintaining the highest safety standards every day and at all times, while delivering an efficient and best-in-class solution to help BP achieve its business objectives,” says director of UK and Turkmenistan oil and gas Matt Rhodes. “This award further builds on our success in this region, adding to two additional long-term contracts recently secured operating from our Aberdeen hub.”
