Noble Corporation reports that in the wake of Hurricane Ike the Company has concluded an aerial survey and preliminary on board evaluations of most of its active U.S. Gulf of Mexico units. The Noble Paul Romano and Noble Amos Runner experienced mooring failures and drifted from their original respective locations, but have been boarded and power has been restored. In addition, the Noble Lorris Bouzigard has experienced damage to its mooring system but has remained in the area of its primary location. The rig has been boarded and power has been restored. Tugs are on station to assist with the start-up of each of these three rigs and other than the above mentioned mooring equipment, there is no other apparent significant damage.
Additionally, the Company has start-up crews on all other active rigs in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico except the Noble Clyde Boudreaux which is scheduled to be remanned tomorrow. Other than the occurrences noted above, there are no indications any of the Company's other rigs have sustained significant damage.
There have been no reports of injuries or environmental incidents. The Company has notified the regulatory authorities and is working closely with its customers.
