    Jackup rigs, or self-elevating units, are mobile platforms which consist of a buoyant hull which has been fitted with several movable legs. The existence of the hull enables the drilling unit and all attached machinery to be transported to the proposed drilling site with its legs up and the hull floating on the water. mobile offshore drilling unit to conduct the activities proposed in this plan. Rig specifications will be included in each Application for Permit to Drill. Safety features on the drilling unit selected will include pollution prevention, well control, and blowout. 1. m tow line deployed in m signicant wave heights, leading to a peak load of t.

The oil and gas industry, as a whole, is considered to be a stream of activities from the upstream activities (getting natural resources from the ground) to the downstream activities (purifying them for use as fuel or plastic and other things).Offshore drilling is very much an upstream activity.

On the barge's deck are steel posts that extend above the water line. A drilling platform rests on top of the steel posts. These rigs are typically used in areas with calm water. A jackup is a rig that sits on top of a floating barge. A ship tows the barge to the drilling site.

Once positioned, the jackup can extend legs down to the sea floor. An oil platform, offshore platform, or offshore drilling rig is a large structure with facilities for well drilling to explore, extract, store, and process petroleum and natural gas which lies in rock formations beneath the seabed.

Many oil platforms will also contain facilities to accommodate their workforce. Most commonly, oil platforms engage in activities on the continental shelf, though.

Offshore drilling is a mechanical process where a wellbore is drilled below the seabed. It is typically carried out in order to explore for and subsequently extract petroleum which lies in rock formations beneath the seabed.

Most commonly, the term is used to describe drilling activities on the continental shelf, though the term can also be applied to drilling in lakes, inshore waters and.

Generally, the only alternative to a shell pad is a shallow water jack-up or a submersible rig. And in some instances, it is impractical to tow these mobile rigs to the location because of the necessary dredging.

A possible solution to this problem, devised by Chain Jacks, Inc., is a jack-up. Drilling terminology deals with major rig components, processes and equipment required to drill and case a well.
