Murphy Oil has selected the ultra-deepwater drillship Noble Bob Douglas for work in the Gulf of Mexico.
EL DORADO, Arkansas – Murphy Oil has selected Noble Corp.’s ultra-deepwater drillship Noble Bob Douglas for work in the Gulf of Mexico.
Under the deal, the drillship will operate in the US Gulf of Mexico in a time period covering early to late July.
The drillship had been cold stacked since its previous contract, when Apache canceled its contract offshore Suriname.
After Murphy’s July contract, UK-based Irish firm Tullow Oil will then take the drillship for work offshore Suriname again.
