Noble’s Homer gets work in Israel

Hard at it: the Noble Homer Ferrington to get animated off Israel for GeoGlobal

US offshore services giant Noble has won a rig contract from Canadian minnow GeoGlobal for its drilling unit Noble Homer Ferrington.

Financial details of the deal for the semi-submersible to drill at a pair of licences off Israel have, however, not been disclosed.

NYSE-listed Noble is yet to announce the deal but Calgary-based GeoGlobal released the information to the junior New York Anex bourse today.

GeoGlobal did not put a time frame on the agreement but said it will have use of the rig from 1 December. Nobody was immediately available at the company for comment on Friday.

Upstream had reported in mid June that GeoGlobal was around a week away from firming up a contract to drill at its Myra and Sara licences off Israel. It is believed that the first well to be drilled with be at Myra.
