The £70 million ($140 million) investment includes the helicopters, training, tools and equipment. The S-92 fleet will support the integrated aviation consortium, the partners of which are Shell, BP, CNR, BP and Petrofac. Together, they contract with Bristow to deliver aviation logistics in the northern North Sea sector.
