Norsk Helikopter is a Norwegian helicopter company that transports crew to oil installations in the North Sea. It has headquarters in Stavanger and has additional operations out of Bergen, Brønnøysund, Hammerfest and the oil platform Heidrun. The company operates a fleet of 12 helicopters and has 197 employees.

The company has contract for crew flights with Statoil, ExxonMobil, BP, Talisman Energy, TotalFinaElf, and ConocoPhillips. In addition it has one AWSAR (All Weather Search and Rescue) Eurocopter Super Puma helicopter stationed on the Statoil platform Heidrun.


The company started operations from the Norwegian oil capital Stavanger in 1993. The company was a joint venture between the Ugland shipping family and the Aberdeen based Bristow Group, who operate helicopters to oil installations on the British sector of the North Sea. Bristow Group is partially owned by the American Offshore Logistics, and in total the three companies operate 420 helicopters.

The first new base was opened at Bergen Airport, Flesland in 1999. Later Norsk Helikopter has opened bases at Brønnøysund Airport, Brønnøy (2002) and at Hammerfest Airport (2004). In 2001 it also opened a base on the oil platform Heidrun.

In March 2005 the company bought the helicopter operator Lufttransport and its Swedish subsidiary with the same name from Norwegian Air Shuttle. Lufttransport was previously a subsidiary of the main competitor CHC Helikopter Service.
