Noble Energy (NBL +0.4%) says the Bright exploration well in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico came up dry after reaching the targeted objectives.

The well was drilled to a total depth of 13,500 ft. and has now been plugged and abandoned; NBL says full well assessment and the integration of drilling results into its geologic models will determine future exploration plans on the Atwater Valley acreage.

BP (BP -0.5%) operated the well with a 50% working interest, while NBL held the remaining 50%.
