A drilling rig has sunk offshore eastern Malaysia while it was being prepared for work at a ConocoPhillips-operated exploration block.

The NAGA 7 tilted “due to soil rapid penetration” at the WL4-00 site according to its owner, local firm Velesto Energy. All 101 personnel on board were evacuated, and the rig subsequently sank.
