A friend of works on the Noble Jim Day told me Marathon has terminated its contract with Noble. He thinks the rig will be headed to Brazil or Africa within a month.
Yesterday’s rumour was the Pride Clarion will be leaving too.
We just got back from backloading casing at the ENSCO 8503. They said that they were probably leaving the gulf at the end of the month.
Brasil is busy as hell! All types of vessels from all over working here. Sure Petrobras is going to try and grab some more rigs!
