June 24, 2008 – Over 80 delegates attended the first AgustaWestland Oil & Gas Industry Seminar held in Singapore earlier this month. The focus of the event was on oil and gas industry helicopter operations in Asia and Australasia and was deemed a great success by those attending. Delegates attended from a number of service providers and operators such as Heli-One and ERA Helicopters, together with representatives from several regional operators.
The delegates were able to listen to briefings by aviation experts, helicopter operators, regulatory authorities and oil companies and to share views about offshore operational safety, regulation and future challenges facing aviation support for the oil and gas industry.
Briefings were also given on operators "real-life" experiences of introducing and operating the AW139 in the offshore oil and gas support market. The AW139 has, in just a few years, established itself as the leading helicopter in this market, outselling all other medium twin helicopters on the market. The AW139’s superior performance, cabin space and modern technology have proved popular with operators around the world.
