HNZ provides helicopter support for Shell at Malampaya (Philippines)

HNZ Group Inc. has won a contract to provide offshore oil and gas helicopter support to Shell’s Philippines subsidiary, Shell Philippines Exploration, BV (SPEX).

HNZ New Zealand Limited has been awarded a five-year extension to its existing contract with Shell Philippines Exploration, BV (SPEX).

This extension replaces the original five one-year option periods at the expiry of the existing contract, and will be in effect from August 2017 to August 2022. The contract for SPEX is for the supply of two AgustaWestland AW139 helicopters for the provision of services to the Malampaya Gas Platform.

Revenues for the extension period of five years are expected to be around $47 million, HNZ said.

“We are very pleased to continue supporting Shell’s offshore operations in the Philippines, said Don Wall, President and Chief Executive Officer of HNZ Group.

“The confidence Shell has placed in HNZ for ongoing helicopter support services both in the Philippines and other regions across the globe demonstrates the reputation we have gained for providing safe, reliable and cost-effective solutions. We look forward to supporting Shell over the course of the renewed contract.”
