All personnel on the rig were safely evacuated after the incident occurred and no personnel remain on the rig. The rig, a 200 foot mat cantilever type unit, is still supported by its damaged legs but is listing approximately 4 degrees with the bow 5 or 6 feet under the water line. The Company has not yet determined the full extent of damage, projected repair costs or necessary time to repair the rig. Technical assessments for jacking the rig down are currently underway.

The rig has a net book value of approximately $16.5 million and is insured for $33.0 million.
