Bristow Group, Inc. today announced a three-year contract extension from Perenco UK Ltd. for seven-day-a-week coverage in the UK Southern North Sea through December 2021, with Bristow providing a tailored aviation solution to meet the clientís specific needs in support of their operations offshore Norwich.

By leveraging its diverse fleet of aircraft, Bristow plans to support the operations seven days a week from its Norwich base utilising up to five existing Leonardo AW139s and dedicated back-up support. This increases Bristow’s aircraft support from three to up to five operational AW139s compared to its current contract with Perenco.

“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,” said Jonathan Baliff, President & CEO, Bristow Group. “Bristow is bringing new and innovative ways of doing business to provide cost-effective solutions and best-in-class service while continuing our tradition of outstanding safety and performance for our clients worldwide.”

Bristow’s AW139 are medium weight twin-engine helicopters cleared to operate up to 14,991 lbs (6,800 kg). With a 12 seat configuration, Bristow’s AW139s have a spacious 120 ft3 (3.4 m3) baggage compartment ensuring maximum comfort and loading flexibility. With a nominal cruise speed of 150 knots (278 km/hr) and maximum still air range of 343 nautical miles (636 km), Bristow currently operates 30 AW139s in its global fleet.
