Offshore drilling contractor Noble Corporation has been awarded a contract for its jack-up rig Noble Regina Allen for operations offshore Trinidad.
In its latest fleet status report, published on Thursday, Noble said that the 2013-built jack-up Noble Regina Allen had been awarded a contract by BHP, starting in September 2020 until February 2021. The dayrate for the contract is $120,000.
The rig’s current contract with ExxonMobil in Canada is set to expire this month. The dayrate for this contract has been $94,000. From mid-December 2019 until late January 2020, the rig will be in a shipyard.
From early February until June 2020, the jack-up will be working for Encana, also offshore Canada.
In early July 2020, the rig is scheduled for a shipyard stay. It will stay there until late August 2020 for contract preparation and mobilization to Trinidad.
Furthermore, according to the fleet status report, the 2011-built drillship Noble Bully II is warm stacked in Malaysia. Earlier in December, Noble completed a transaction with Shell relating to the two joint ventures in which Noble and Shell each held a fifty percent interest.
In the transaction, Shell bought out the remaining term of its drilling contract for the drillship Noble Bully II, and Noble acquired Shell’s interests in the Bully I and Bully II joint ventures.
