Only 16 overs of play were possible on day three of the weather-affected contest, with the visitors reaching 261 for seven to pass Essex's first-innings total of 228.
However, more heavy downpours left the pitch unplayable on Thursday morning, with the two captains shaking on a draw before play could get under way.
Essex have now drawn four of their opening six matches of the season.
