Sembcorp Marine has delivered the jack-up rig Noble Lloyd Noble to UK-based offshore drilling contractor Noble.

The seventh ultra high-specification harsh environment jack-up rig Noble Lloyd Noble is based on the GustoMSC CJ70 design, as well as Statoil’s ‘Category J’ specifications and has an operational air gap of 69m.

The rig has a maximum total drilling depth capacity of 10,000m and is capable of operating in water depths of 150m in adverse environmental conditions.

"The rig has a maximum total drilling depth capacity of 10,000m."

Noble Lloyd Noble is planned to be deployed in Statoil’s Mariner field development in the North Sea under a four-year charter agreement. It also has the capacity to operate over a very large platform or in a subsea configuration.

The Noble Lloyd Noble project achieved eight million man-hours and worked without reportable incidents onboard the rig. It also recorded a low accident frequency rate (AFR) of 0.10 per million man-hours worked over a construction period of 31 months. 

Sembcorp Marine president and CEO Wong Weng Sun said: “The Noble Lloyd Noble reaffirms Sembcorp Marine’s ability to continuously scale new peaks as a manufacturer of the world’s most sophisticated rigs.
