Two Semisub Hulls Arrive in Jurong for Conversion

Jurong Shipyard, a subsidiary of SembCorp Marine, has signed an agreement with Noble Drilling to undertake the conversion and outfitting of two of its semisubmersible hulls, Noble Danny Adkins and Noble Bingo 9000-4, respectively. A firm contract is expected to be finalized by the third quarter of this year with delivery of the first hull by the first quarter of year 2009.

The first hull, Noble Danny Adkins left China last week and is under wet tow to Jurong Shipyard where it will be completed to satisfy a firm four-year commitment from Shell received last November to work in the Gulf of Mexico.

When completed, the unit will have living quarters for 200 men and will be capable of drilling to a total depth of 35,000 feet.
