Astrid Sørensen - Statoil
Statoil awards Bristow Norway contracts for personnel transportation from Bergen and Florø starting on 1 May 2017.
The awarded contracts will effectively ensure the safety of our transportation services. At the same time the contracts reflect a market situation with lower activity offshore, and a continuous need for flexible and cost-efficient solutions.
The contracts are valued at around NOK 1 billion in the 5-year fixed period. In addition the contracts include four yearly options.
“The contract awards will strengthen the competitiveness of the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) through opening up for more efficient flight programme that will help reduce costs for the petroleum business. This ensures predictability in relation to long-term activities and adds value on the NCS. We look forward to further develop the cooperation with Bristow Norway, and working closely on the new contracts,” says Astrid Sørensen, Statoil’s senior vice president for joint operations support.
