CHC Completes First Flight for Neptune Energy

Tuesday, August 28, 2018


ABERDEEN, UK -- Earlier this month Neptune Energy and CHC Helicopter celebrated the inaugural flight from Norwich, with the H175 to the Cygnus A and Cygnus B installations in the Southern North Sea as part of a new 22-month contract with multiple extension options.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to continue our 17 year aviation partnership with Neptune who have become one of our largest North Sea Customers,” said Mark Abbey, CHC Regional Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “I believe these awards reflect the excellent safety performance, on-time departure performance and value we continue to deliver.”

This contract is in addition to the two and half-year contract extension CHC secured with Neptune in November to provide three AW139 aircraft operating to 32 different locations in the Southern North Sea from our Den Helder base in the Netherlands.

“Congratulations to the teams in Norwich and Den Helder on these new agreements,” said Karl Fessenden, President and CEO of CHC Helicopter. “We look forward to continuing to build on our relationship with Neptune and meet their aviation transportation needs for the duration of these projects and beyond throughout the EMEA region.”

CHC’s third H175 entered service in late April. These agreements reflect CHC’s expertise in supporting the global oil and gas sector, whilst showing customers our evolving services and technology that can best fit their needs.
