CHC to Provide Additional Aircraft for Shell’s Prelude Development

CHC Group has announced that three new Sikorsky S-92 aircraft will begin serving Shell for the company’s Prelude FLNG project from its base in Broome, Australia. These new aircraft will join a fourth S-92 already in use as part of a two-year extension of the current Shell contract in place since mid-2012.

Shell Australia’s Prelude FLNG project will be one of the first to produce natural gas at sea from offshore production platforms, and will then transfer it to a fleet of specialized ships for product transportation directly to customers. By using this process, Shell will use significantly less materials, land and seabed than developing the same gas reserves via a similar onshore facility while also reducing the impact on sensitive coastal habitats.
