CHC Awarded Two North Sea Contracts



CHC Helicopter has been awarded a three-year contract renewal, plus options, by Tullow Oil Plc., for the provision of a sole-use AW139 helicopter commencing in July, 2006, and a seven-year contract renewal, plus options, by Perenco UK Limited, also for the provision of a sole-use AW139 helicopter, commencing later this year.

Both aircraft will be based at CHC's base at North Denes, England, replacing older model aircraft. The Tullow Oil contract represents the first deployment in the North Sea of the AW139, a new medium twin-engined helicopter from Agusta S.p.A. CHC also recently began operations of the first of two AW139 aircraft from its base at Den Helder, The Netherlands.
