Bristow feels BP 'trust' with new North Sea deal

Bristow said UK operations will not be affected, despite issuing a statement that it is assessing the firm's "ability to continue".
Bristow has won a new contract with BP

Bristow Group today announced a new, five-year contract with BP to support its North Sea operations.

The company will use Sikorsky S-92s operating out of its bases in Aberdeen and Sumburgh.

Eastern Airways will lay on fixed wing support.

Bristow Group recently filed for US-style Chapter 11 bankruptcy in an effort to restructure and strengthen its balance sheet.

Matt Rhodes, director UK and Turkmenistan oil and gas, said: “We recognise BP has placed its trust and confidence in Bristow and we are committed to maintaining the highest safety standards every day and at all times, while delivering an efficient and best-in-class solution to help BP achieve their business objectives.

“This award further builds on Bristow’s success in the region, adding to two additional long-term contracts recently secured operating from our Aberdeen hub.”
