Oil Platform Helicopter Support: Offshore Operations in Houma, LA

For over 50 years, helicopters have been one of the most indispensable resources for those in the oil and gas industry. With the versatility and exclusive abilities of the aircraft and assistance with the transport of crew and cargo, special missions have resulted in an increased profit through the efficiency only helicopters can provide. The Gulf of Mexico oil fields, alone, employs more than 600 helicopters for various uses such as transportation, heavy lifting, search and rescue and surveys. FairLifts is a professional resource for any company or individual in the need for helicopter assistance in Louisiana generally, as well as specifically for Houma offshore operations.

The operators and experienced pilots we do business with have been working in their respective fields for decades, many came directly from the military and are accustomed to the ever-changing conditions and plans of the oil industry. Both daytime VFR and nighttime IFR operations are conducted for our Gulf clients and on-demand flights are easily accommodated in the event of last minute changes. With our expansive partner network, we can arrange a helicopter for you at any time you need it.

Our rapport within the offshore helicopter community not only allows for ease of scheduling but also for providing you with the most options in aircraft models to fit the size of the load or crew capacity and project. While typical shuttles to and from the heliport to the offshore rig may only require a smaller helicopter such as the Bell 206’s, A-stars and EC-120s, heavy lifting and transporting of cargo may call for a larger or medium size model like the S-61s. All aircraft we schedule for our clients come with the most advanced safety technology including floats, rafts, life vests, ELTs, etc. We guarantee we will schedule the right helicopter for your offshore endeavors in Houma.

Whether you are in need of short-term helicopter resolution or if you are in need of a more permanent operator, FairLifts can arrange it. With exploration, drilling and production taking place at greater depths each year and further off the coast, it is imperative that you schedule your recurring helicopter transport soon.

Houma, Louisiana Oil Platform Helicopter Support Houma Oil Platform Helicopter Support

Louisiana is the largest point of entry for waterborne crude oil coming into the US

While there are multiple ports, the largest and most often referenced is the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP). For more than three decades the port has handled more than 12 billion barrels of foreign and domestic crude oil for the world’s largest consumer of petroleum products, the US.

The United States relies on a constant supply of petroleum products meaning business in the offshore oil industry can never be allowed to slow. This has been the case since the early 1900’s when Texaco began drilling on Lake Pelto. Since, Louisiana has grown to have reserves of 458 million barrels of oil (excluding federal offshore areas), 2.1 percent of the nation’s total, and 10 billion cubic feet of natural gas, 4.2 percent of the U.S. total. Besides Texas, the state produces more petrol products than any other.

With business being what it is in the Gulf, a near 25% of all domestic oil production, it is no wonder the use of helicopters is needed. Transporting oil products, machinery and parts as well as crews is an on-demand service and must be handled by a professional and experienced pilot. Which is why FairLifts works with nothing less to provide you with efficient, precise and safe offshore helicopter operations in Louisiana.
