How many Sikorsky S76A ( Allison Engines) still in the oil patch

Out of interrest, who still has A models on contract in the offshore industry.

3 in Indonesia on contract to Conocco, star Energy and Premier Oil. They are soon to be replaced by C++'s, thought I would get the question in while they are still on contract.

There were 2 with China Southern on Hainan Island, not sure if they are still on contract.

The two on Hainan Island are long gone now and replaced with C++s. I don't think that Bristow has any A series or A+ on contract any more. Many have been used for spare parts and some were for sale.

There is one in Djibouti which has been idle for a few years, but may soon be back in service.
