Bristow Group has announced a three-year contract extension until August 2024 with Aker BP to support air transportation crew change services for the oil and gas exploration and production company's operations in the Norwegian continental shelf.
Bristow has been an aviation partner of Aker BP (formerly BP Norge) for more than 15 years and will use its fleet of existing S-92s in Norway to provide crew change flights out of Bristow's base in Sola, Norway. Bristow's current contract with Aker BP expires on 31 August 2021. The contract extension includes an option to extend another year.
“Aker BP was a great partner in this process and took a long term business approach to its procurement of these safety critical services,” says Bristow MD and accountable manager in Stavanger Heidi Wulff Heimark. “We are committed to providing the safest and most efficient service to Aker BP in support of its exploration and production activities. We are especially honoured by its trust and confidence in us and that this contract extension will bring long-term stability and maintains efficiencies in the service.”
Aker BP is an oil company that explores, develops fields and produces oil and gas on the Norwegian continental shelf. It is the operator of the Alvheim, Ivar Aasen, Skarv, Ula and Valhall field centres, and a partner in the Johan Sverdrup field.
