Noble (NE) contracts with Shell (RDS.A) to move a deepwater rig from the Gulf of Mexico to Brazil, and expects that more would follow, which "may at some point impact the broader deepwater market." The previous contractor, unaffiliated Noble Energy (NBL), bowed out due to a lack of Gulf permits.

    Sounds like the dw drillers are giving up on the Gulf. Temporarily lost jobs are now becoming permanently lost. Thanks Mr. President...

    OK! Didn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this one out. Reduce supply without reduction in demand means higher prices. Higher prices means "green" energy becomes viable... Business being efficient allocation of resources found a market to employ those rigs to increase their ROI.... A no brainier.... Take the rig you take the jobs... Those left behind become more dependent on government for benefits..And the merry go round go's round and round...

    Not too much more to add to above comments. But a large segment of the US population is oblivious to the environmental agenda of reducing offshore drilling. These lost jobs ought to be hanging around this President's neck like a millstone. Instead, he'll call for unproductive green jobs.

    GE is hiring in China for "green jobs". Of course Immelt is the head of Obama's new jobs council. And see today's 1:54PM market current on GE's effective tax rate of 3.6%. I can't see how the ObaMao administration could get any more moronic and absurd.

    Cincinnatus,

     

    Give this crew (Administration) some more time and I will wager that they will show those who listen as many moronic and absurd maneuvers that one can stand.

     

    Thought the foreign give-aways were under control ? Well, follow
    Ms.Clinton's footsteps out of "meetings" with the ingrate Heads of State and ouch !!!!!!!!

     

    "Never let them see you sweat" !

     

    Can I get some water over here ?

     

    Tom
