    News // July 13, 2001
    Noble Drilling Corporation reports that its rig, the Noble Jimmy Puckett, a 300ft independent leg cantilever jack-up, has suffered damage while under tow in Indian waters.

    The unit encountered significant weather, which resulted in the lossof the derrick and other drilling components.

    The unit was returned to Mumbai, India, and is currently waiting until weather abates to conduct a full assessment of the damage. Given the current weather conditions, a full assessment may take several weeks to complete. Further information will be released to the market at that time.
