Canadian Helicopter (CHC) has won a new five-year contract, and possible extensions, to support Nexen Petroleum UK’s central and northern North Sea operations.

The service, which includes servicing the Buzzard field’s hookup and commissioning, will involve a dedicated Super Puma AS 332L, with additional flight hours by the CHC pool of AS 332Ls. It represents new work for CHC and is scheduled to start next month.

CHC has also been awarded a new two-year contract, plus options, with The Peak Group to provide helicopter services drawn from the same pool, in support of drilling programs in the southern and northern North Sea. That contract is valued at about $4 million.
