Paragon Offshore’s drillship has grounded in the Port of Corpus Christi, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey ripped the ship’s mooring lines.

According to My San Antonio, the DPDS1 drillship, formerly known as the Noble Phoenix, broke from the moorings on Saturday, sinking a tugboat in the process.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Paragon Offshore, seeking more info on the matter. We will update the article if we get a response.

As for the port of Corpus Christi, it is now in Post Storm Recovery mode.

According to the Port Authority, port personnel are continuing to assess hurricane impacts with initial assessments indicating light to moderate damage and debris.

The Port has begun to recall Tier 2 Essential Personnel to support the recovery operations. Power has been restored to several facilities and numerous others are still on emergency power including the PCCA EOC, Security Command Center and Harbor Master’s Office. These facilities have maintained continuous uninterrupted power.

The port is working toward achieving normal operation by September 4.
