ADNOC Drilling Company and Helmerich & Payne, Inc. announced the finalization of the Rig Enablement Framework Agreement.

 

The Framework Agreement will advance ADNOC Drilling’s land rig operational performance, as well as support its ambitious growth and expansion plans. Focused on improving drilling efficiencies and unlocking operational savings, the Framework Agreement builds on the Asset Purchase Agreement and IPO Cornerstone Agreement announced on September 8, 2021, further strengthening the strategic alliance between ADNOC Drilling and H&P.

 

Abdulrahman Abdullah Al Seiari, CEO of ADNOC Drilling, said: “The Rig Enablement Framework Agreement announced today is a natural evolution of both our strategic alliance with H&P and ADNOC Drilling’s growth trajectory. By sharing global best practices and further optimizing our world-class rig fleet, this agreement turbocharges ADNOC Drilling’s significant competitive advantage, enabling us to further capitalize on and cement our leading position as the largest national drilling company in the Middle East and the only national drilling company that offers start-to-finish well services. The resulting efficiency gains will deliver enhanced operational excellence, in turn delivering even greater value to our shareholders.”

 

John Lindsay, H&P’s President and CEO commented, “We are excited about our alliance with ADNOC Drilling. Our cornerstone investment in ADNOC Drilling’s IPO supported the execution of our international growth strategy to allocate additional capital outside the U.S. and is a testament to our belief in what ADNOC Drilling and H&P can achieve together. The finalization of the Rig Enablement Framework Agreement now provides further opportunity to build on this strategic relationship and combine our capabilities to deliver exceptional operational performance.”

 

ADNOC Drilling’s recent IPO was the largest-ever listing on ADX, raising over $1.1 billion and marking a significant milestone in ADNOC’s value creation strategy. Substantial demand saw the IPO oversubscribed more than 31 times, highlighting strong confidence in the Company’s growth trajectory. As a Cornerstone Investor, H&P committed $100 million to the Offer, subject to a three-year lock-up period.

  Noble Corporation announced that it has entered into an asset purchase agreement to sell five jackup rigs for $375 million to a newly formed subsidiary of Shelf Drilling, Ltd. whose obligations under the asset purchase agreement will be guaranteed by Shelf Drilling. The sale, which is subject to approval of the UK Competition and Markets Authority, is intended to address the potential concerns identified by the CMA in the Phase I review of the proposed business combination between Noble and Maersk Drilling.   The Remedy Rig Sale Agreement includes the rigs Noble Hans Deul, Noble Sam Hartley, Noble Sam Turner, Noble Houston Colbert, and Noble Lloyd Noble and all related support and infrastructure.  Associated offshore and onshore staff are expected to transfer with the Remedy Rigs.  Following the sale, Noble expects to continue to perform the current drilling program for the Noble Lloyd Noble under a bareboat charter arrangement with Shelf Drilling until the second quarter of 2023 when the primary term of its current drilling contract is expected to end.  The charter arrangement would pass the economic benefit of the drilling contract to Shelf Drilling.  Drilling contracts for other Remedy Rigs are expected to be novated to the Buyer, subject to the clients' consent.    Noble will provide certain customary transition support services to the Buyer for a limited period of time.  The Buyer is expected to finance the acquisition through equity and debt financings by the Buyer and Shelf Drilling, but the purchase is not conditioned on such financing.  The Remedy Rig Sale is expected to close promptly following closing of the Business Combination (and following receipt of CMA approval).  Additional information related to our Remedy Rig Sale will be provided in an 8-K expected to be filed by the Company on June 23, 2022.
