Noble Lloyd Noble Image source Aqualis OffshoreMarine and offshore engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore has been contracted by Noble Corporation to oversee the load-on, transportation and load-off operations of the first journey of the ‘world’s largest’ jack-up rig, the Noble Lloyd Noble.

The rig has an operational air gap of 69 meters and is capable of operating in a water depth of up to 150 meters (500 feet) in harsh environmental conditions. It boasts a maximum total drilling depth capacity of 10,000 meters (approximately 33,000 feet).
