Investors must be patient with Noble Corporation for now, since the results of the company's new contract developments cannot be reflected until the third quarter of this year. Indeed, the company is seeing troubled times, but there are substantial signs that conditions will improve later this year. The Noble George McLeod, a jack-up rig that is currently undergoing modification in the Arabian Gulf recently secured a new contract with Talisman to perform work in Malaysia starting May 2013. The rig is expected to have a day rate of $115,000 under this contract. This will be the biggest revenue boost for Noble Corporation.To maximize earnings and to capitalize on the opportunities being presented now, Noble Corporation must focus on reducing rig downtime. The company recently issued a statement that it is developing an enhanced plan designed to ensure that its drilling rigs and their related management procedures comply with applicable maritime laws and leading industry practices. If this plan pulls through, then the company may find a way to make up for its lackluster performance last year.
