Noble Corporation has been awarded new contracts for one of its drillships in the Gulf of Mexico and Suriname.
The company’s latest fleet report showed that the ‘Noble Bob Douglas’ drilling rig has been contracted to work in the gulf of Mexico for Murphy Oil in July this year.
The same rig is then contracted to work in Suriname for Tullow from early October to early November 2017.
The rig was last contracted by Apache in Suriname, in a job which ended in April.
The company also announced that Shell had exercised its right to terminate its contract for the ‘Noble Hans Deul’ jackup rig – with that work expected to end in late September this year, instead of August 2018.
