Héli-Union receives certificate for safe operations in Myanmar

Héli-Union has received an appreciation certificate to acknowledge its safe and efficient services for Woodside’s initial oil and gas exploration campaign in Myanmar.

The H225 (formerly the EC225) aircraft, operated by Héli-Union, was used for a long range crew change operation that lasted for 3 months. The main mission of the contract was for personnel transportation from Yangoon, Myanmar facility to Woodside’s AD-7 and A-6 blocks with the furthest distance travelled up to 300 nm per trip.

Last year, Héli-Union announced its partnership with Priority 1 in launching commercially based offshore helicopter Search and Rescue (SAR) services for oil and gas companies.

Heli-Union’s history in Myanmar dates back to the 1980s when Héli-Union first entered the growing market for a seismic operation with a Puma helicopter.

Héli-Union continues to maintain a strong business presence in Myanmar. The company deploys several helicopters in Myanmar including AW139, H225 to S76 C++.
