CHC has been awarded a contract from OMV (Norge) AS to support their forthcoming drilling program in the Norwegian Sea.

STAVANGER, NORWAY, December 13, 2018 – CHC Group today announced it has been awarded the contract from OMV (Norge) AS, to provide helicopter services in support of their forthcoming drilling program at the PL 644 field in the Norwegian Sea.

“We are excited to work with OMV as their aviation partner in this project,” said Helge Nesvåg, CHC Sales Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). “This project allows us continue to build on our decades of experience supporting oil and gas customers in the Norwegian Continental Shelf as we continue to evolve our services and technology to best meet their needs.”

The operation will begin in Q2l 2019 flying to the Deepsea Bergen drilling rig from CHC's base in Kristiansund. There will be up to four flights per week using a Sikorsky S92, which has a proven safety and availability record, reaching more than one million fleet hours of service in 2016.

“CHC is proud to continue a safe and reliable transportation offering to customers in and around the Norwegian Continental Shelf,” said Per Andre, CHC Helicopter’s General Operations Manager for Norway. “We look forward to helping OMV meet their transportation needs throughout this project and are eager to start flying on their behalf upon project commencement next year.”
