FI

CHC had 2 x L2's there for a little over a year in offshore support. With the onboard seat tanks fitted they worked well , although anti-ice version maybe even better. For a combined onshore support + offshore support and SAR role L2's would work a treat and with 225's now back on line ,there should be a few around. Being based at Mount Pleasant isn't for everyone though. Port Stanley was more civilised , but hangarage is a problem as the rag hangar built for CHC has now disintegrated.

Does anybody know how the FI SAR is going to pan out. Will it end up with BHL or the other bidder?

Bristow Group Announces Multi-Year Contracts Including New Clients And New Markets


Contracts expected to generate in excess of $2.8 billion in revenue


HOUSTON, Sept. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bristow Group Inc. (NYSE: BRS), the leading provider of helicopter services to the offshore energy industry, announced today in advance of the Johnson Rice Energy Conference, that since the beginning of calendar year 2014, it has secured several renewal and new multi-year contracts for oil and gas and search and rescue operations (SAR). These contracts provide for a total of 31 large and five medium helicopters and are expected to generate in excess of $2.8 billion in revenue over the current life of the contracts.

Jonathan E. Baliff, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We continue to enter new markets by creating a more integrated logistics solution for our global clients. The renewal of existing contracts in Canada that were not previously disclosed and the securing of new contracts in new markets like the Falklands are proof of our ability to expand through a complete and differentiated suite of point to point transportation services. These successes derive from the innovation and close coordination that our operations, commercial, and finance teams bring to our clients every day, worldwide. These contract wins also exemplify the strong demand we continue to see for offshore logistics services, specifically as it relates to the increasing number of deepwater production facilities across the globe."

One year contract doesn't seem worth the effort.... Is that the correct bullet for the FI and not Norway work ?

Is your mid-November a bidder notification date?

Is there a cooling off period?

Fair question Jim, and I really don't know the answer. That's why I keep coming here to infill with whatever snippets of gossip are out there.

Obviously we're already at that point in time. Contract announcements frequently seem to slip by weeks or months.

I know a chap who works on the current Brintel contract, who has just told me they've been informed that they are the preferred bidder and are now in a 30 day cooling off period.

Not sure of the procedure, but does this sound about right?

That is a good result if it is the case, Sparky and the boys and girls down there have been doing a sterling job for many years.
