Noble Takes Delivery of New High-Spec Jackup

Tuesday, September 04, 2007
Noble Corporation reported that the Company has taken delivery of a new high-specification jackup drilling rig constructed by Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co. Ltd. in Dalian, People's Republic of China. The Noble Roger Lewis, the first of three such rigs being built for the Company, is in transit to its inaugural drilling assignment in Qatar, where it will work under contract to Shell.

The Noble Roger Lewis was constructed based on the proven F&G JU-2000E design, which includes enhanced environmental protection, safety and drilling efficiency features to meet the ever-increasing requirements of worldwide exploration and production operations. The Noble Roger Lewis is designed to operate in water depths up to 400 feet and is equipped to drill wells in high-pressure/high-temperature environments up to 30,000 feet deep. Compared to many other jackups, the Noble Roger Lewis has more deck space, higher variable load, more drilling capacity, greater cantilever reach (up to 75 feet), and accommodations for a greater number of personnel.
