Drill ships

The whale factory that became two unites:

One half became the drill barge Western Offshore VII, which finally became the storage barge Ismaya:

The other half became the drillships Western Offshore VIII and went through many Owner/Operator and many name changes.
She became the Noble Duchess:

And finally PARAGON MDS1 (IMO:7632022)

Unless you believe another version:

Which version is true???

Or could it be that the aft part of the whale factory was joined with the bow part of Esso New York to become the WO8??
