Oil producer ConocoPhillips (COP.N) said all staff were safely evacuated from a drillship that listed and sank off the coast of Malaysia on Tuesday.
The Naga 7 drillship was being placed at a site off the coast of Sarawak state when one leg of the jack-up rig penetrated the soil, according to owner Velesto Energy Bhd (VELE.KL). No drilling had begun.
A total of 101 employees were transferred to rescue vessels, according to Velesto, which said it had begun an investigation and was evaluating recovery options. Jack-up rigs are generally designed to work in shallow waters.
