With regard to the BP
Scotia retained 40% of that when BP
sold assests to Apache, so the Impact should'nt be that dramatic and CHC
did'nt get that contract from Bristow they inherited it in the take over, It was Bristow who were proud at taking the Shell contract from British International (now CHC
Scotia) after they had it for 27 years. With regard to 3 operators again I think that initially Bond are going to be solely BP
as they financed the whole thing with the £100 million 10 year contract, but as ever I'm sure a third operator will drive down contract rates and perhaps we will see contracts moving around again so perhaps there are interesting times ahead.
