NHV Secures North Sea Helicopter Services Contract with Dana Petroleum
NHV Group has secured a new long-term contract with Dana Petroleum for the provision of helicopter services to the oil and gas firm’s central and northern North Sea assets.
As part of the contract, NHV said daily flights will depart from NHV’s base in Aberdeen to the Triton FPSO in the central North Sea and Western Isles FPSO in the East Shetland Basin for a period of five years.
NHV, which said it will add a new H175 to its fleet in Aberdeen to support Dana Petroleum, revealed that the new contract had created a “number of employment opportunities” at NHV’s Aberdeen base.
“We are delighted that Dana Petroleum have selected NHV to provide helicopter services to their North Sea operation,” NHV’s base manager, Jamie John, said in a company statement.
“We are excited to begin this new partnership and look forward to supporting Dana’s operations in the North Sea,” John added.
Martin Lawson, Dana’s UK operations manager, said Dana was pleased to award NHV with a five year aviation support contract.
“We are confident that NHV will deliver our aviation requirements across our North Sea assets in a safe, cost effective and fit for purpose way,” Lawson said in a company statement.
NHV started operating out of Aberdeen at the beginning of 2016 and announced the opening of a new hangar, apron and passenger handling facilities in October 2016.
