Use thisExxonMobil has signed a contract for two Airbus H145 helicopters to support a liquified natural gas (LNG) project in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The new H145 model with a five-blade, bearingless main rotor provides a 150kg increase in useful load.

The aircraft will be based at the Hides Gas Conditioning Plant (HGCP) in Hela Province of the PNG Highlands and will be used to transport personnel and equipment in support of PNG LNG Project operations.

The sale is the first by Airbus Helicopters to ExxonMobil and the first order in the oil and gas sector for the new H145 in the Asia Pacific region. Ben Bridge, executive vice president Global Business, for Airbus Helicopters said “it’s an honour to win the confidence of a safety and performance focused customer like ExxonMobil for operations in PNG’s highly demanding operational environment. The new H145 has made a strong start in the market and it’s clear that it has a great future across multiple market segments.”
