Offshore rig taking on water but stable after wave

GALVESTON, Texas (AP) — An offshore drilling rig is taking on water but is stable after being hit by a large storm wave off the Texas coast.

The U.S. Coast Guard says the rig was drilling for oil and gas in 3,000-foot depths around 10 a.m. Tuesday when the wave hit.

Petty Officer Manda Emery says the platform was knocked 55 feet, and one of three watertight chambers in one of the rig's six floatation columns began taking on water.

Emery says the platform is being kept level and there is no spill. None of the 116 crew members was injured, and there have been no evacuations.

The rig is about 130 miles from Galveston.

Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Andy Kendrick says the well is being drilled for Houston-based Anadarko Petroleum Corp.
