Three Noble jackups on assignment in the Middle East

Offshore staff

HOUSTONNoble Corp. has secured a one-well contract offshore Qatar for the Noble Houston Colbert, with drilling expected to start next month.

In June the rig completed a drilling assignment offshore Argentina.

Another jackup, the Noble Alan Hay, entered a shipyard this summer for a scheduled inspection and maintenance program, which was completed in September. The rig has since returned to service offshore the United Arab Emirates.

In July the jackup Noble Mick O’Brien started an estimated 400-day contract in the Middle East, while last month, the jackup Noble Regina Allen began providing accommodation services in the North Sea under a new contract.

Also in the North Sea, the Noble Lloyd Noble, having mobilized from Singapore, is jacked up and undergoing final acceptance testing before starting a four-year (primary term) contract.

At the conclusion of 3Q, one of the company’s eight semisubmersibles, the Noble Paul Romano, remained under contract with a program that should last through the rest of this year.

Six of the company’s eight drillships are under contract, with the Noble Sam Croft and Noble Tom Madden currently warm stacked in the US Gulf of Mexico.
