The deal is set to last for an initial three years, although a further two, one year extensions have been included.

“Bristow has been contracted to operate directly for Petrofac. We look forward to growing this collaborative partnership.” continued Corbett.

“Using a mixed fleet of Sikorsky S-92s and EC225s, we will operate a new operations model with Petrofac as they seek to flight-share with other operators. We will begin operations with flights direct to a platform in the Central North Sea adding additional scope with crew change activity to other CNS locations later in the contract.”
