Bristow to Supply Shuttle Services for Total in Central North Sea

Bristow Helicopters has won a new contract to supply shuttle services between the Safe Caledonia flotel and the Franklin platform in the Central North Sea.

The company, a leading provider of helicopter services will, operate morning and evening shuttles, using an offshore-based AS332L aircraft, for Total E&P UK Ltd.

The Total contract, which began in April, is initially for a four-month period but has options to extend the requirement until December 2009.

It is one of a number contracts secured by Bristow this year to provide aviation support for the North Sea oil and gas industry.
