CHC Brasil has announced it has agreed a new contract with Equinor Brazil, to support the High Activity Period (HAP) in the Peregrino field.

Peregrino field is the largest field operated by Equinor outside Norway. CHC will support Equinor through the HAP stage of the project from Cabo Frio, and will provide a dedicated aircraft to deliver a major program of maintenance, upgrades and repairs on the floating production storage and offloading vessel.

Licia Rocha, CHC’s Sales Director – Latin America, commented: “We are thrilled to be supporting our client Equinor Brazil as it enters the HAP phase of the Peregrino field project. We deliver safe and effective transportation offshore each day, and our hard-working team continuously goes above and beyond to deliver the highest levels of operational excellence to our customers. This new contract exemplifies that, and we welcome the opportunity to be involved in the Peregrino field project.”

Licia continued: “The oil and gas sector is buoyant in Brazil. We are not only seeing an increased demand from core customers – such as Equinor – but there’s also been a significant number of new projects coming forward - which we are extremely well positioned to support.  The market is growing, and we are well placed to continue executing our growth plans for the region as a result.”
