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.
