Noble Corporation plc Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

LONDON, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Noble Corporation plc (NYSE: NE) today reported second quarter 2014 net income of $235 million, or $0.91 per diluted share, compared to $256 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014. For the second quarter of 2013, net income totaled $177 million, or $0.69 per diluted share. Results for the second quarter of 2013 included $18 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, related to cancellation of a contract awarded to a jackup rig under construction. Revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $1.2 billion compared to $1.3 billion in the first quarter of 2014 and $1.0 billion in the second quarter of 2013.

David W. Williams, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Noble Corporation plc noted, "Second quarter results benefited from our strategy to shift the fleet toward a greater mix of premium rigs with contributions from two new jackup rigs, the Noble Houston Colbert and Noble Regina Allen. In addition, revenues in the quarter were supported by contractual dayrate increases on several rigs and the commencement of a contract for the Noble Paul Romano, which returned to work in May. However, due to planned regulatory inspection and maintenance shipyard projects for several rigs, revenues for the second quarter declined modestly when compared to first quarter 2014. 

"As of the close of the second quarter, Noble has added nine new, technically advanced rigs to its fleet since 2011. Two additional new rigs are expected to commence operations during the third quarter with the arrival of the ultra-deepwater drillship Noble Sam Croft in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and the high-specification jackup Noble Sam Turner in the North Sea. Operating performance on our new rigs has continued to improve due in part to the implementation of previously announced operational readiness procedures and crew competency measures.  We believe these improvements are sustainable and should continue to drive operating performance."

Contract drilling services revenues for the second quarter of 2014 reached $1.2 billion, a slight decline of less than 1 percent from revenues reported during the first quarter of 2014. The slight decrease was the result of increased non-operating days in the quarter as six rigs began planned shipyard projects, substantially offset by favorable contractual pricing increases, most notably on the Noble Bully II, Noble Roger Lewis, Noble Jimmy Puckett and Noble Discoverer, and revenues received from newbuilds beginning their first contracts.  Fleet operating days decreased 4 percent during the quarter due to an increase in shipyard days.  As a result, fleet utilization decreased to 79 percent as compared to 84 percent during the first quarter of 2014. Offsetting the utilization decrease was an increase in average daily revenues, up 3 percent in the second quarter to $231,000 compared to the previous quarter average of $223,600, reflecting the addition of premium assets and favorable contract prices on existing rigs. Contract drilling operating costs increased marginally in the second quarter to $577 million compared to $561 million in the first quarter of 2014. Higher costs associated with adding newbuild rigs to the fleet were almost entirely offset by a reduction in mobilization and repair and maintenance costs.

Net cash from operating activities was $526 million in the second quarter of 2014 as compared to $506 million for the first quarter of the year.  Capital expenditures in the second quarter totaled $699 million, including $510 million related to the Company's fleet expansion program. As of June 30, 2014, approximately $1.1 billion in capital expenditures was required to complete the remaining three projects in the Company's newbuild program, comprised of one ultra-deepwater drillship and two high-specification jackups.

Debt as a percentage of total capitalization at June 30, 2014 was 39 percent, a slight increase from 38 percent at March 31, 2014, while liquidity, defined as cash and cash equivalents plus availability under revolving credit facilities, totaled $772 million compared to $1.03 billion at March 31, 2014. The decrease in liquidity primarily relates to final milestone payments on newbuild rigs, partially offset by cash flows from operating activities.

Operating Highlights

The Company's total contract backlog at June 30, 2014 was an estimated $13.4 billion compared to $14.3 billion at March 31, 2014, reflecting a reduced pace of customer contractual activity during the first half of 2014.

Utilization of the Company's floating rig fleet (semisubmersibles and drillships) decreased to 81 percent in the second quarter of 2014 from 85 percent in the first quarter of 2014. Excluding the impact of two cold stacked rigs, utilization would have been 88 percent in the second quarter of 2014 and 92 percent in the first quarter of 2014. The decline in utilization was a result of the Noble Paul Wolff completing its contract with Petrobras in April coupled with downtime for planned maintenance on the Noble Dave Beard in Brazil and the Noble Amos Runner in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The Noble Amos Runner project is expected to extend through the third quarter of 2014. Average daily revenues in the floating rig fleet were $401,200 in the second quarter of 2014, an improvement of approximately 2 percent compared to $393,300 in the first quarter of 2014.

Second quarter 2014 utilization of the Company's jackup rig fleet was 80 percent, a decrease from 86 percent utilization achieved during the first quarter of 2014. The decline in utilization was due to an increase in shipyard days on certain rigs in West Africa and in the North Sea, together with greater idle time due to the completion of contracts for the Noble David Tinsley and the Noble Kenneth Delaney during the quarter. Average daily revenues during the second quarter improved by approximately 5 percent to $130,900 from $125,000 during the first quarter of 2014.  The increase in dayrates is primarily the result of favorable contractual repricing, and the impact of dayrates on the newbuild jackups Noble Regina Allen and Noble Houston Colbert.

At the end of the second quarter of 2014, 74 percent of the Company's available rig operating days for both floater and jackup units were committed for the remainder of 2014.  For 2015, an estimated 50 percent of the available rig operating days were committed, including 59 percent and 46 percent of the floating and jackup rig days, respectively. The calculations for committed operating days include available days for two floaters and one jackup, all of which are currently cold stacked and also contract backlog associated with the Paragon Offshore rigs.

Outlook

Williams closed by stating, "On August 1, Noble will complete the spin-off of Paragon Offshore, creating a separate and distinct company focused on the operation of standard capability rigs. The transaction represents a critical step in transforming Noble into one of the offshore drilling industry's premier fleets, one possessing the modern features and versatility to address the increasing technical complexity of many of our customers' well programs today and in the future. As for Paragon, we believe it is positioned to excel in the standard specification drilling sector, with well-maintained and efficient rigs, highly-proficient crews, a strong customer base and a talented management team.

"We are delighted to reach this point in our strategic transformation and believe the completion of the spin-off will provide Noble with an improved competitive posture and an enhanced platform for creating shareholder value. We strongly believe our improved fleet mix, improving operations performance, best-in-class shipyard execution, demonstrated contracting expertise and improving free cash flow, place the Company in an advantageous position to address opportunities expected in the next phase of the industry cycle."

For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...
DevOps is all about agility. However, you don't want to be on a high-speed bus to nowhere. The right DevOps approach controls velocity with a tight feedback loop that not only consists of operational data but also incorporates business context. With a business context in the decision making, the right business priorities are incorporated, which results in a higher value creation. In his session at DevOps Summit, Todd Rader, Solutions Architect at AppDynamics, discussed key monitoring techniques...
Want to enable self-service provisioning of application environments in minutes that mirror production? Can you automatically provide rich data with code-level detail back to the developers when issues occur in production? In his session at DevOps Summit, David Tesar, Microsoft Technical Evangelist on Microsoft Azure and DevOps, will discuss how to accomplish this and more utilizing technologies such as Microsoft Azure, Visual Studio online, and Application Insights in this demo-heavy session.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

High-performing enterprise Software Quality Assurance (SQA) teams validate systems that are ready for use - getting most actively involved as components integrate and form complete systems. These teams catch and report on defects, making sure the customer gets the best software possible. SQA teams have leveraged automation and virtualization to execute more thorough testing in less time - bringing Dev and Ops together, ensuring production readiness. Does the emergence of DevOps mean the end of E...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
