Bristow Wins BP North Sea Contract
Offshore helicopter operator Bristow Group has secured a new contract with BP to support its North Sea operations.
Bristow said Friday that the contract, with a five-year primary term, started on May 13, 2019.
Bristow will deliver a fully integrated aviation solution to BP from bases in Aberdeen and Sumburgh.
New pilot and crew positions are being created, with existing Sikorsky S-92s utilized combined with fixed-wing support provided through Eastern Airways, to deliver the contract.
“We recognize BP plc has placed its trust and confidence in Bristow 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 their business objectives,” said Matt Rhodes, Director UK & Turkmenistan Oil and Gas.
“This award further builds on Bristow’s success in the region, adding to two additional long-term contracts recently secured operating from our Aberdeen hub.”
