CHC wins Faroe Petroleum contract to support North Sea exploration drilling program

CHC Group has been awarded a new contract with Faroe Petroleum to provide helicopter services in support of their exploration drilling program at the Brasse Field in the North Sea, the company said.

The operation will begin in summer 2017, flying from CHC´s base in Bergen using a Sikorsky S-92, which has a proven safety and availability record, reaching more than one million fleet hours of service in 2016.

Faroe Petroleum´s drilling program is expected to last for an initial period of approximately 70 days and the contract includes an option to extend CHC´s services beyond this initial period.

CHC Helicopter provides helicopter service in some of the most remote and challenging environments around the world. The company transports customers in the oil and gas industry, supports search-and-rescue and EMS contracts, and provides maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services.
