Bristow Norway Secures Multi-Year Contract in the Barents Sea


Bristow Norway renewed 5-year deal to provide S-92 helicopter offshore crew change and search and rescue (SAR) services from Hammerfest to support Eni Norge and Statoil in the Barents Sea


Bristow Norway Secures Multi-Year Contract in the Barents Sea


Bristow, September 18, 2017 - STAVANGER, NORWAY – Bristow Norway today announced that it has secured a multi-year contract to provide helicopter offshore crew change and search and rescue (SAR) services to support Eni Norge and Statoil in the Barents Sea.

The five-year deal, which is a renewal of an existing contract, includes options to extend by three years, and will commence September 1, 2018.

“We are honored to earn the trust of both Eni and Statoil in the safety and quality of our operation,” said Bristow Norway Area Manager Heidi Wulff Heimark. “This contract is a result of our team’s tremendous focus to continuously improve our service delivery, and strengthens our position as the leading operator of offshore helicopter transport in the global market.”

The contract will mean continued high activity at Bristow Norway’s helicopter base at Hammerfest, where the company currently provides helicopter services for Eni´s and Statoil´s exploration and production operations in the Barents Sea. Hammerfest, with its proximity to the Barents Sea, is a well established helicopter base for Bristow Norway, with the necessary infrastructure and experienced workforce in place.

Bristow will utilize a Sikorsky S-92 in oil and gas configuration to provide crew change services for offshore platforms, and a Sikorsky all-weather (AWSAR) SAR S-92 for the search and rescue work to significantly improve offshore safety and rescue capability. Both helicopters will be equipped to the latest Norwegian oil and gas standards, with integrated traffic alert and collision avoidance system (TCAS II), tail mounted cameras and Performance-Based Navigation (PBN). The AWSAR S-92 is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and fully certified for night vision goggles (NVG) operations, with forward looking infrared (FLIR), auto hover, twin-hoist, mission management with moving map and increased on-board medical capabilities. On short notice, the crew change helicopter can be reconfigured as a backup for the SAR helicopter with full AWSAR capability.

“The Barents Sea is a strategically important region for Bristow, and we foresee continued growth of exploration and production activities in the coming years,” said Heimark. “With this contract and our Arctic experience, Bristow is well-positioned for coming exploration campaigns in the high North.”
