The rig is currently carrying out operations for Tullow Oiloff Suriname for an undisclosed day rate and is set to kick off a three-year contract with ExxonMobil off Guyana in the first half of 2018.

Noble has also secured a contract for its jack-up Noble Houston Colbert which is currently warm-stacked but will head out on a one-year contract with Dolphin off Qatar from early February next year.
