Shallow Draft Jack-Up

Shallow Draft Jack-Up  is one of the rig design concepts for offshore drilling in shallow water environments.

1. Water depth range: 5 to 100m. Shallow water capability from fully retracting spud cans and possibly require attachment of additional floatation elements.

2. Environmental Impact Potentially low, although dredging may be extensively required which would be environmentally unattractive and expensive.

3. Not suitable for ice

4. Suitable for exploration and development. Easily moved between locations in summer time. Rig up time . . .
