The contract covers crew change and transportation services from the Deepsea Yantai Rig to Shell’s Sola and Bergen bases. CHC will utilize an S-92 aircraft to support the rig.

This latest deal is a continuation of CHC and Shell’s long-standing relationship. Shell selected CHC to provide safe, smooth, and efficient crew transportation services in the region’s remote and challenging environment.

CHC has worked with North Sea energy customers including Aker BP, Equinor, and OKEA, who recently extended their contract with the operator by four years.

Helge Aase Nesvåg, Senior Commercial Director EMEA-E, commented, “Our latest agreement with Shell underscores our dedication to meeting our customers’ specific needs. Our team consistently pursue excellence and will ensure Shell’s team members can always reach their destinations and return home safely and efficiently.

“We’re excited to continue the momentum of our regional growth, both through our commitment to offshore energy projects, and our other service offerings.”

“Alongside its support of the region’s energy market, CHC Helikopter will continue to expand its life-saving search and rescue (SAR) and helicopter emergency medical service (HEMS) missions. CHC provides emergency support around the world, including in Norway, Australia, Brazil, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

“With its local expertise and global network, CHC Helikopter delivers unmatched services across a range of sectors. With a focus on safety, reliability and sustainability, CHC is committed to supporting offshore energy projects.”
