CHC Norway Wins Contract Extension with Aker BP
Will Continue Supporting Valhall Oil & Gas Production

STAVANGER, NORWAY – CHC Group announced it has signed a two-year contract extension with Aker BP to support their infield shuttle at the greater Valhall field in the Norwegian North Sea.

“I’m delighted that we have been selected by Aker BP. We have been their aviation partner since the production start-up in 1982, and we value the continued confidence in this partnership,” stated Mark Abbey, CHC Regional Director Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “As the leading helicopter service provider in Norway, this work allows us to continue to build on our 50 years aviation experience supporting oil and gas customers on the Norwegian Continental Shelf as we continue to evolve our services and technology to best meet their needs.”

The contract will run until September 2021. CHC will provide two AS332L aircraft for this operation. One will be located offshore on the Valhall PH platform and the other, a back-up aircraft, will be based at Sola. 

“CHC has a proud history offering safe and reliable transportation to a variety of customers in EMEA,” said Karl Fessenden, President and CEO of CHC Helicopter. “We are eager to continue to add new chapters to our history in the region, as we have had seen success not only in the North Sea oil and gas space, but also providing search and rescue services and additional transport as far west as Ireland, as far South as Equatorial Guinea, and as far east as Kazakhstan.”
