Shell Southern North Sea Contract 2012

Currently with Bristow, up for renewal in July I hear.

Any bets/rumours on who will win it? Bristow, CHC, NHV, Dancopter, Bond, Heliholland??

If HeliHolland get it, i'm screwed, i have trouble enough calling the single one that flys from Durham every now and then the correct callsign. Ends up "HollyHelland" ...... crews never sound impressed

The cheapest? Why else split it from the Northern North Sea?

But if Bristow do loose it then what of their SAR in Den Helder.

Certainly not CHC
no offence torquestripe but you so do not know what you are talking about !

there is as least as much chance of CHC winning it as any others you mention

Rumour has it Shell will announce the award of the contract at the end of the year.

Rumour also has it that the decision of the award of the contract will be Shells' and theirs alone.

Considering that Heli Holland operate helicopters on behalf of Greenpeace, it might be hard to imagine they might ever be under serious consideration for a contract for any oil company?

Worth more!

If they are cheap they will get it. Whales or no whales.

Maybe Shell could make that one of the conditions of the contract.

Does anybody know whether this is a renewal of an existing contract or the expansion of the current one?

The real Q is... New Jobs?

Jobs...... I would wait for the outcome first to see who is succesfull and what country their AOC is because TUPE doesn't always apply.

Yes i know its O&G, but Bristows who have this contract split between NL & UK also operate 2 S61's for NOGEPA (i think). So if they lost the contract, i asked in a earlier post what would happen to the SAR? Would they keep it going in Den Helder or is it part and parcel with this contract.

Question TUPE

It's my limited understanding of TUPE that unless Bristow go under as a result of loosing the Shell contract, then TUPE does not apply. So if, for example, Bond or CHC won the contract, they would not be legally obliged to employ any of the Bristow pilots.

Is this how it works or am I missing something? If its not, then the pilots at Bristow have nothing to fear as they can just walk into another Norfolk based operation. That is assuming it's won by a Norfolk based operator...

Can anyone clarify / expand on this?
