NOBLE EVACUATES THE JACKUP REGINA ALLEN OFF THE COAST OF TRINIDAD
On Thursday December 15th the jackup rig Noble Regina Allen experienced a mechanical issue while preparing to move from its location approximately 26 miles off the coast of Trinidad.
A technical failure in the jacking gear appears to have caused damage to the bow leg braces and joints, preventing the rig from being able to fully retract one of its legs. With the structural integrity of the leg compromised, all rig personnel have been evacuated after confirming watertight integrity.
The rig completed all well operations before the event occurred and thus the well is secure. Noble is working closely with our customer and local authorities in response to the incident.
Noble Regina Allen tilted whilst under construction at SembCorp Marine’s Jurong Shipyard in Singapore on the 3rd December 2012 due to a jacking failure.
The JU-3000N 400 ft jackup was delivered from the Singaporean shipyard in 2013.
