Bristow Group has signed four separate two-year contract extensions through April 2024 with energy companies Equinor, Shell and Neptune to support its air transportation crew change services for their oil and gas operations in the Norwegian continental shelf.

Bristow has been an Equinor aviation partner for more than 20 years and will continue to use its fleet of S-92s to provide crew change flights out of bases in Bergen and Florø, Norway. The strong partnership with Neptune and Shell has been ongoing since May 2017.

Bristow's current contracts with the three companies expire on 30 April 2022. All contract extensions include two one-year options to further extend the contracts from 2024.

“Our collaboration and working relationship with Equinor are true examples of what a partnership in our industry should look like,” shares Bristow MD and accountable manager in Norway Heidi Wulff Heimark. “We both share a strong commitment to efficiency and to the highest safety standards in providing critical transportation services in supporting exploration and production activities. We are especially honoured by their trust and confidence in us with these contract extensions that will bring long-term stability and maintain service efficiencies.”

Equinor, Shell and Neptune Energy collaborate on flights from the Florø base, and Shell and Neptune have decided to also extend their contracts with Bristow in line with Equinor's contract award.
