“Aker BP was a great partner in this process and took a long-term business approach to their procurement of these safety critical services. We are committed to providing the safest and most efficient service to Aker BP in support of their exploration and production activities,” said Heidi Wulff Heimark, Bristow Managing Director/Accountable Manager in Stavanger, Norway. “We are especially honoured by their trust and confidence in us and that this contract extension will bring long-term stability and maintains efficiencies in the service.”
