North Sea O&G support extended for Bristow
ConocoPhillips has exercised its first contract option for air transportation and SAR services in the Ekofisk area. Bristow will continue to provide S-92 crew change and SAR/shuttle operations from the platforms.
Bristow supports ConocoPhillips with air transportation crew change and shuttle/search and rescue services for the Greater Ekofisk Area in the North Sea.

Bristow Group has received extensions to two contracts with exploration and production company ConocoPhillips to support air transportation crew change and shuttle/search and rescue (SAR) services for the Greater Ekofisk Area in the North Sea.

Bristow has been ConocoPhillips's aviation partner for more than 20 years. The current two contracts started 1 September, 2014, and the extension will run through 31 August, 2024, with additional option years available. The extensions create a foundation for continued improvement in service levels and a collaborative environment for the benefit of both parties.

Bristow will use two S-92 all-weather search and rescue service helicopters based at the ConocoPhillips Ekofisk Lima platform, located in the heart of the Ekofisk field approximately 160 nm from the Bristow main base at Stavanger airport, Norway. Additionally, Bristow's Stavanger base will continue to use three oil and gas configured S-92 helicopters from its existing fleet to support the crew change flights to and from the Ekofisk field.

Bristow provides 24/7 all-weather search and rescue service to the Greater Ekofisk Area.
