As a provider of offshore drilling services, Noble was designated an essential service for critical infrastructure at the outset of this COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore throughout this difficult time, we have continued to operate with the support of our internal response team pursuant to our crisis management and business continuity plan. We have also taken comprehensive steps to protect the health and safety of those on our rigs, those traveling for crew change, those having to serve extended hitches offshore, and those providing shoreside support from home and our offices. While evolving conditions differ significantly in the areas around the world where we operate, we continue to look to the direction and guidance of the respective local and national governments, and global health organizations to best protect health and safety of our people and those around us.
Following the government’s guidance on developing conditions at certain locations, we have implemented partial attendance at certain offices. Added health and safety measures are in place for those on location. Whether working from home or back at our offices, our work and support for our offshore employees and dedication to our customers continues.
Please note: While we may be back at some shoreside locations, our offices remain closed to onsite visitors and guests until further notice.
