CHC, March 12, 2018 - Since Shell’s Prelude floating liquid natural gas (FLNG) facility arrived in the field, CHC Helicopter has safely flown approximately 15,000 passengers to and from the facility, with the four S-92s racking up 2,782 flight hours and 171,080 nautical miles with no injuries or incidents.

Prelude is located 475km north-northeast of Broome and is in the process of being commissioned.

Approximately 800 people are working and living on Prelude and the adjacent accommodation support vessel during this commissioning phase of the project.

In the midst of all of this activity, the team in Broome have had to contend with two cyclones (hurricanes) and tropical lows which have dumped 1.5m (5ft) of rain on the coastal town and airport, where CHC has its base, in the last three months alone.

That equates to more than two years’ worth of rainfall.

In addition, the team has welcomed a work experience student from the local high school for a semester, and has worked with the Nyamba Buru Yawuru Ltd to create an internship program. The first intern started in early February.
