CHC Group announced it has been awarded the contract from Centrica to provide helicopter services in support of their forthcoming drilling program at the Fogelberg field in the Norwegian Sea.

“We are excited to work with Centrica as their aviation partner in this project,” said Mark Abbey, CHC Regional 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 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf as we continue to evolve our services and technology to best meet their needs.”

The operation is scheduled to begin in February/March 2018, flying to Fogelberg from CHC's base in Kristiansund. Centrica’s drilling program is expected to last for an initial period of approximately 100-150 days.

The support will be provided by a Sikorsky S-92, 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 North Sea,” said Karl Fessenden, President and CEO of CHC Helicopter. “We look forward to building on our relationship with Centrica in the North Sea and look forward to flying on their behalf upon project commencement next year.”
