Word has it that Bristow has lost its "ad-hoc" contract with Agip to Caverton, and is battling to renew the Chevron contract at expiration. Any truth to these? Could the reign/dominance of Bristow in Nigeria Helo industry be nearing an end?
appears so! If the rumour is true, got a feel sorry for the Bristow Shell pilots and engineers penciled in for Agip.
Oh dear some people will believe any rumour or be in a hurry to spread it when it's just that!

Time will tell, now matter how many soon-to-be Caverscummers may like to shed crocodile tears for those who decided that a salary always paid on time and no worry about whether one day the Nigerian tax man may just come asking about their unpaid tax is better than a huge salary (which of course nobody has yet got as Caverscum don't take over the Shell Warri and Port Harcourt EC155 contracts until next month, so nobody has yet been paid or is sure if their Nigerian tax liability will be met by the company or may one day come and bite them hard in the nyash
