The search for the missing person, of Bulgarian nationality, is currently under way and being carried out by the emergency authorities, Saipem said in an update on the jack up drilling rig Perro Negro 6 incident, which occurred on July 1st.

Furthermore, Saipem confirmed that monitoring of the wreck has shown no evidence of any type of spillage.

To remind, the jack up drilling rig Perro Negro 6, suddenly tilted and suffered hull damages, due to the collapsing of the seabed under one of the three legs, causing water intake.

The event occurred during the rig positioning on location prior to starting drilling operations, between the coasts of Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo, near the mouth of the Congo River, in approximately 40 metres of water.

At 10:30 AM CEST, the rig, with no personnel on-board, capsized and sank.
