Babcock Offshore has confirmed a new three-year contract to provide the expanding UK-based oil and gas company Serica Energy with offshore helicopter crew transport services.
The contract was awarded after a competitive tender and will see Babcock transport Serica Energy passengers to and from the company’s Bruce complex in the North Sea, 340km north east of Aberdeen.
The flights will use a mix of S-92 and H175 helicopters and are scheduled to begin on December 1, 2019 out of Babcock’s main helicopter terminal at Aberdeen International Airport.
Director Offshore Simon Meakins stated: 'We have flown for Serica Energy several times previously so we are very pleased to have now been selected as their aviation partner of choice for this long-term contract.
'All of us at Babcock Offshore are looking forward to building our relationship with Serica Energy as we deliver the safe and efficient aviation support they require.'
