In recent days, Caverton Helicopters has added the ninth AW139 to their fleet, as part of its expansion plans to increase market share in the oil and gas offshore support business.
in 2010, the company edged out long-established foreign operators to win a multi-year multi-million dollar contract from Shell involving six helicopters. A seventh helicopter was added in May 2014. Won after a rigorous competitive bidding process, it is on record as the biggest contract ever awarded by the oil multi-national to an indigenous company.
In 2013, Caverton commenced its first international operation after winning the contract to provide passenger transfer and pipeline surveillance services to the Cameroon Oil Transport Company (COTCO), a subsidiary of ExxonMobil.
