Noble Bully I Wins Global Floating Rig of the Year Award

The “Noble Bully I” was awarded by Shell with this year’s Global Floating Rig of the Year award, recognizing her as the best performing floating rig for Shell worldwide in 2013.

The “Noble Bully I” is the first drillship featuring the Huisman Dual Multi Purpose Tower. Huisman was awarded with the contract for the drilling tower, related pipe, riser and BOP handling equipment onboard “Noble Bully I” in 2007.

The “Noble Bully I” and her younger sister “Noble Bully II”, are designed to offer a low cost and more flexible alternative for drilling in ultra-deep water. The selection of Huisman’s in-house designed compact box type drilling tower instead of a conventional derrick allows for a significantly smaller sized vessel compared to other deep-water drillships of similar capacity.

Keppel Shipyard completed the integration of two drillships, Bully I and Bully II, for a Shell and Noble joint venture company back in 2011.

The “Noble Bully I” is currently working in the Gulf of Mexico on the Olympus project.
