An offshore drilling platform owned by Noble Corp. (NE) and operated for Petrobras (PBR) has been stabilized and non-essential personnel were evacuated after tilting, but there appears to be no risk of it sinking.

The SS-53 platform, located in the Campos oil basin off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, began to list early this morning, leading to the evacuation of 79 crew members to another rig.
