The FR8 Pride, a Panamax tanker that carries petroleum products, lost power this morning and drifted into a mobile offshore drilling unit – a large jackup drill rig called the Rowan EXL I. The rig was not drilling at the time; it was damaged and has been stabilized. The tanker sustained flooding in a bow compartment and grounded itself; it is carrying a load of fuel oil. No oil spill has been reported. View a video of the collision and aftermath.
