CHC Wins New North Sea Contract

CHC Helicopter Corporation has been awarded a 30-month contract by Kerr-McGee North Sea (U.K.) Limited. The contract includes an extension option for an additional two years.

The contract is for the dedicated services of a new AS 332L2 Super Puma Mk II helicopter, as well as additional pool services from CHC's fleet of AS 332L Super Pumas. It takes over from a previous contract providing only shared pool arrangement, and results in increased revenue for CHC, as well as improved service and greater access to aircraft for Kerr-McGee.

Concurrent with the contract award, CHC has taken delivery of its 12th Super Puma Mk II - the most advanced helicopter currently servicing the offshore oil and gas industry.
