Bond Offshore Helicopters has won a five-year deal to supply UK North Sea crew change support for Nexen Petroleum.
Bond will primarily use using two Sikorsky S-92 helicopters, with the first aircraft coming into service in February 2014 and the second in March 2014.
Both aircraft will operate out of Bond’s Aberdeen base.
Before this, Nexen used rival CHC to ferry staff to platforms.
Luke Farajallah, managing director of Bond Offshore Helicopters, said: “I am delighted to be working with Nexen. This is an important new customer for Bond and I look forward to providing our new partner with a safe and customer-focused service.”
Bond is owned by the Avincis Group.
Last month, engineering service company Babcock International confirmed it was in “exclusive” talks over a potential joint venture with the London-based Avincis.
It is thought Babcock was looking to pay about £400million for a 50% stake in the company ahead of a possible full takeover at a later date.
The announcement comes just days after rival Bristow secured a five-year deal to provide helicopter support for BP’s West of Shetland operations .
