Helicopter Assistance for Galveston Offshore Operations and Texas Oil Ops

For half a century, helicopters have assisted the oil and gas industry all over the world including places like the North Sea, Persian Gulf and African coasts, and of course the Gulf of Mexico. Initially, after the Vietnam War, helicopter pilots needed to find jobs working as civilians and due to their training and experience in harsh environments they proved to be fantastic open water flyers, so most were easy to introduce into the offshore business. FairLifts works with these veterans as well as professional operators globally to offer our clients more options for aircraft, specialized pilots and in more locations.

Helicopter Assistance in the Home of The Texas Oil Boom

The Texas oil boom began in 1901 however offshore operations took place several years later. By 1915 the oil production by the Galveston Bay area was underway. Galveston is considered a city within the metropolitan area of major oil and petroleum contributor Houston who played a major role as a beneficiary of the Boom. The area has since become home to one of the largest concentrations of refineries and petrochemical plants in the world. Deepwater and ultra-deepwater drilling and exploration is still considered to be the future of the Gulf business contributing to the US’s massive intake of petro products and Texas is the largest contributor beating out even Louisiana in production.

With the growth of Texas’ contribution to the US production rate in mind, companies are starting to look to the future of offshore operations and how they can make them more cost effective and efficient. This is leading to more companies employing the use of helicopters to transport workers to the remote vessels and platforms located uo to 200+ miles off the Texas Gulf Coast.

Galveston Offshore Helicopter Crew Transportation Offshore Crew Transport

Offshore Crew Transport

Most offshore vessels and deepwater platforms are located 200+ miles off the coast which makes getting to and from the facility for shift changes or visits can be difficult. Helicopter transports are in great need to get crews to and from ships, platforms and remote facilities. They provide a safe, quick and reliable solution for personnel transport for major crew shift changes and for the conveyance of executives, supervisors and investors for visits. Often, corporations will contract this service to us for the long term or recurring transport of its crew members throughout the year, however, short term contracts can also be arranged in the event you are in need of an on-demand solution for a smaller period of time. For most crew transports, smaller aircraft are typically used unless you are in need of a larger group to be taken to and from base, in which case a mid to large size aircraft can be scheduled as well. By working with FairLifts, you are guaranteed the most versatile and cost effective solution that gets your crews to base fast and safe.

Galveston Helicopter Movement, Placement, Installation and Repair of Cargo and Equipment

Cargo and Equipment

No one wants to take a break in production if work is going smoothly, especially with the roughly hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil being mined each day in Texas. Minutes can mean a good deal of revenue lost, and when a repair or part is needed, a helicopter can make all of the difference in delay time. Whether you need drilling supplies, major components, or the installation of a large piece to the production rig, a helicopter can provide that precisely and in the quickest way possible.
