Former Babcock business lands new helicopter contract with Well-Safe Solutions

The Well-Safe Guardian left the Cromarty Firth last week.

Offshore Helicopter Services, the new name for the former Babcock Aberdeen business, has landed a new North Sea contract with Well-Safe Solutions.

The new deal will see Offshore Helicopter Services “fly hundreds of passengers every month” to and from the Well-Safe Guardian rig.

Last week the Well-Safe Guardian left the Cromarty Firth for the North Sea in what was described as a “landmark moment” for the decommissioning specialist.

The rig is on contract to plug and abandon wells at the Buchan and Hannay fields operated by Repsol Sinopec Resources UK (RSRUK).

Babcock Aberdeen operation to be renamed while competition watchdog mulls CHC takeover

.

Offshore Helicopter Services said its contract got underway over the weekend from its new terminal at Aberdeen International Airport.

The firm is carrying out three flights per week using S-92 helicopters.

Managing director Paul Kelsall said: “Adding this important new customer to our portfolio is a real testament to the fantastic skills and capabilities of our people.

“We are looking forward to working with Well-Safe Solutions, to provide the safe, efficient and trusted services they need and their passengers expect.”

Babcock Aviation had to change its name to Offshore Helicopter Services as it has been sold by Babcock Group to CHC, but is awaiting a green light for the takeover from the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA).

The CMA has referred the case to an in-depth investigation over concerns about the potential for loss of competition.

The Well-Safe contract news comes days after the CMA published a response from CHC, which described the legacy Babcock business as “not a particularly serious competitive threat” to the North Sea market.
