Caverton Helicopters, a subsidiary of Caverton Offshore Support Group Plc. a fully indigenous company listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange has been awarded a 5 year logistics support contract by CNL, operator of the NNPC/CNL Joint Venture, for provision of aviation services with a 2 year renewable option.
The contract was awarded following an extended competitive tendering process. Caverton emerged successful after scaling through both the technical and commercial evaluation ahead of other bidders. Given CNL’s reputation for very high safety and quality standards, it is safe to say that Caverton’ s commitment to safety, quality and continuous improvement contributed in the no small measure to this successful bid.

Special recognition to the Access Bank Group who have supported Caverton on various projects over the years “Caverton helicopters is poised to continue to work on consolidating its vision to be leading provider of premium aviation services in sub-Saharan Africa to the oil and gas industry.
