Babcock’s Offshore business has secured a new five-year shared contract with three oil and gas operators for helicopter transport in the northern North Sea.

Babcock said on Friday that the contract would initially see the company operate over 100 helicopter flights each month from Sumburgh in Shetland, on behalf of CNR International, EnQuest, and TAQA.

Flights are expected to begin on July 1, 2020.

Babcock Offshore Director, Simon Meakins, said: “We are delighted to welcome this new customer group to Babcock Offshore and look forward to working with them.  We are committed to delivering the safe and efficient aviation support they require.”
