Bristow Group has received a three-year contract extension from Perenco UK to support operations in the UK Southern North Sea through December 2021, the company announced on 24 May.

Under the contract, Bristow will support Perenco’s operations from its Norwich base utilising Leonardo AW139s as well as dedicated back-up support. This increases Bristow’s aircraft support from three to up to five operational AW139s compared to its current contract.

Bristow’s AW139s are medium weight twin-engine helicopters capable of a nominal cruise speed of 150kt and maximum still air range of 636km.

Jonathan Baliff, president and CEO, Bristow Group, said: ‘This extension is a direct result of Bristow’s continued commitment to safety and excellence in service for our clients. We recognise Perenco placed its trust in Bristow to continue to transport its most precious assets – its people – and we look forward to continuing to deliver on our promise.'

Bristow currently operates 30 AW139s in its global fleet.
