CHC Brazil has signed a new contract supporting Shell’s exploration and appraisal activities in Brazil. This
short-term agreement will last seven months, with options for extension, and will serve the Brava Star platform supporting the Gato do Mato and Alto de Cabo Frio fields.
“We are pleased to continue our ongoing relationship with Shell in Latin America,” says CHC regional director for Latin America Carlos Madaleno. “We have been focused on providing short and long-term solutions that are carefully tailored to our customer’s specific project needs and continue to see strong results from this approach.”
The project will be supported by the Sikorsky S-92 aircraft and be based out of CHC’s Jacarepagua airport facility. CHC Brazil is a subsidiary of CHC Helicopter.
Following the retirement of CHC Group regional director for Latin America Marcelo Luiz da Silva Soares, current sales director Carlos Madaleno has stepped into his shoes. Soares joined CHC in 2016 and previously enjoyed a nearly 40-year career in the aviation and energy industries.
“Marcelo has kept a steady hand on our business in Latin America during the most turbulent time in our company’s history,” says CHC president and CEO Karl Fessenden. “We greatly appreciate his service to CHC and our customers, and wish him the best in his retirement.”
Madaleno joined CHC in 2017, bringing more than 14 years of experience developing and managing partnerships with International Petroleum Companies, Petrobras and National Oil Companies in Latin American countries.
“Carlos has been an essential part of our sales team and we are fortunate to have such a strong leader ready to step right into leading our team in Latin America,” adds Fessenden.
