Babcock Offshore has confirmed two new contracts for helicopter crew change operations out of their Aberdeen 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 their Culzean field for an additional 12 months, adding an extra 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 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.”
