    Offshore drilling contractor Noble Corporation has been awarded a contract by PTTEP for redeployment of the rig Tom Prosser in Australia for a single new production well at Montara.

    The 2014-built jack up rig, which had been warm stacked in the United Arab Emirates since last October on expiry of its drilling contract with Quadrant Energy, will be deployed for two months from early September to late October 2017 at a day rate of US$130,000.

    It will be involved in work for PTTEP in the Bonaparte Basin in which the Montara oil project is located as well as the undeveloped Cash-Maple complex in AC/P54. The field are located 700km west of Darwin and 200km southwest of the Bayun Undan field. The Noble Tom Prosser was designed to drill to depths of 10,000m in water depths of 121m.

    Noble also revealed that a customer has exercised one 30-day priced option for the 2013-built jack-up rig Noble Regina Allen, which is providing accommodation services for an unnamed client in the UK.

    It’s customary at the dawn of a new year to make predictions you have no idea will come true. So what are my predictions at the dawn of 2017 for the world of digital oil and gas? This is tricky because it requires some predictions for oil and gas too. Here goes...

    • Oil Price - No material change
    • Biggest investment area
    • Biggest pay off
    • Hottest careers
    • Biggest let downs
    To read more about these predictions in detail and other great articles - head to the Digital Oil and Gas website for the latest blogs. The contributors to this blog work across the oil and gas industry, from exploration and production, to services and supply chain, in all kinds of digital areas.

    Drones (or autonomous equipment) should encounter a very receptive market in the oil and gas sector. Of all the digital technologies drones will deliver superior triple bottom line benefits. Moreover, it is in many oil and gas basins’ best interests to accelerate autonomy solutions. Here’s why. 


    The oil and gas sector is actually very well suited to exploring and adopting autonomous kit. 

    • The work can be dangerous – fumes and vapours from the product can asphyxiate or ignite
    • The work location is frequently remote and harsh, driving up the cost of housing human operators
    • Well trained human capital is now scarce because of the downsizing in the sector.
    • The sector is an avid consumer of the kinds of kit that autonomous favors – heavy lifters, haulers, movers.
    • The physical assets (plants, pipelines) are long life assets that require steady and often routine attention, making payback easier.
    • The work has lots of routine elements (heavy haulers trundling around mines, or engineers driving around to inspect facilities).
    • Environments where autonomous kit can be deployed are not shared with public use infrastructure (which takes way risks).
