Jackup Rig Rates Softening

Oil services firms fall amid possible pricing slide.

Noble Corp. (NE:noble corporation) said in a meeting with RBC Capital Markets that prices have been falling to the $185 million to $215 million range for jackup rigs, down from $225 million to $250 million. Noble Energy is concerned that national oil companies have started to build their own rigs, "which would effectively displace demand," RBC said in a note to clients.
