ExxonMobil has contracted Noble Corporation for drilling of the Liza Phase 1 development wells set to begin in 2018.

OilNOW understands the Noble Bob Douglas drill ship will begin its campaign by Q2 2018 and the contract is expected to expire in 2021. The full contract day rate has not been disclosed.

Noble is currently inviting expressions of interest for the provision of a range of services and materials to commence work in the Stabroek Block next year.  These include personnel logistics, grease and lubricants, rigging and lifting equipment, catering, PPE clothing and safety supplies, valves and fittings, electrical commodities, house fittings, office supplies, structural steel, pipe, and fittings, communication equipment among others.

The Liza Phase 1 development is approximately 190 kilometers offshore in water depths of 1500 – 1900 meters. The development plan includes completion of a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel designed to produce up to 120,000 barrels of oil per day. The FPSO facility will develop approximately 450 million barrels of oil from the Liza Field.
