CHC has announced a new contract to support Statoil’s operations off the coast of Brazil.
The two-year deal will see the helicopter operator flying to the Norwegian firm’s BM-S-8 area in the Santos Basin.
The missions involving Sikorsky S-92 aircraft will be based out of Jacarepaguá in Rio de Janeiro and will begin in February 2018.
Statoil estimates the amount of recoverable oil from the BM-S-8 license is “in the range of 700 to 1,300 million barrels of oil equivalent”.
Marcelo Luiz Da Silva Soares, CHC’s regional director for Latin America, said: ““We look forward to utilizing our global standards and processes to taking care of our new passengers in Jacarepaguá when this contract begins.”
