So CHC has taken over Babcock/OSA and their impact has so far included:-

1 A client giving CHC notice to switch to Integrated Helicopter Services. (a startup formed by the OSA management team so quickly alienated by CHC Australia.)


2 The pilots being hours away from industrial action.

3. Every supplier up in arms as the bills arenít getting paid, including the power to a hangar disconnected as a result!

Bravo! The only surprise is that it took this long.

I guess you can add Total Denmark to the list?

It's not really the same. I think the Danish conversation went:

CHC: "We're happy to provide the service, but here's the new price."
TOTAL: "We're happy that you will provide the service, but we are not going to pay that."
CHC: "We're no longer happy to provide the service. Goodbye!"

It's just a shame for OHS that UK law won't let them walk away from the contract in the same way that Danish law enabled CHC to do just that.

I think itís more to do with the fact that the CEO of CHC is the ex boss of Maersk Drilling, and Total DK is basically Maersk Oil.

The protected industrial action by Offshore Services Australasia pilots began today. Nothing major yet, mandated breaks to the flying program and refusal to complete ancillary taskings such as post flight paperwork, online training and base husbandry.

Cam and Liam are in a tricky spot, with a body of legacy CHC pilots on a significantly better deal than that offered to OSA guys, yet doing the same job, in the same aircraft, in one case, out of adjacent hangars, all under the CHC banner.

Never a dull moment in offshore.
