CHC Helicopter has reached a five-year agreement with Shell International Exploration and Production to supply helicopters in support of deepwater exploration. The arrangement calls for two Eurocopter AS332 L2 Super Pumas to provide passenger transport and EMS services for Shell’s Noble Globetrotter II deepwater drillship off the coast of sub-Saharan Africa. The multi-million dollar contact is set to begin in July 2013. According to CHC, the company has operated in 19 different countries in Africa, using both the AgustaWestland AW139 and Sikorsky S-76.
