Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A +1.3%) says it is idling two Noble Corp. (NE -3.7%) ultra-deepwater drillships, citing the current, challenging environment for offshore exploration and production projects.

Shell says it will idle the Noble Globetrotter II for up to two years, starting in January, during which it will pay a negotiated dayrate of $185K, and idle the Noble Bully II for up to a year at a negotiated dayrate of $200K.

The primary term for the Noble Bully II, Noble Globetrotter I and Noble Globetrotter II are unchanged, with contracts expected to conclude in April 2022, July 2022 and September 2023, respectively.
