Babcock Offshore has confirmed two new contracts for helicopter crew change operations out of its Aberdeen, Scotland, base.
The work will see Babcock continue and expand aviation support operations with oil-and-gas operators Total and CNOOC Petroleum Europe Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited.
Total selected a bid from Babcock to continue operations with the company in its Culzean field for an additional 12 months, adding an extra Sikorsky S-92 helicopter to Total’s established flight operations.
Babcock will add an extra S-92 to CNOOC Petroleum Europe Limited’s established flight operations until September 2019, in support of activity in the Central North Sea and West of Shetland.
Babcock’s director of offshore, Simon Meakins, said: “There is great potential for continued development in the North Sea and we are seeing some really positive moves here. We have the fleet, the experience and the long-term stability to provide the right level of support and service to today’s oil-and-gas companies and are looking forward to continued safe growth.”
