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 Ocean tow of jackup drilling units book 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.

Determination of Cold Water Areas Fire Drills and On-Board Training. 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.

In this condition, the Jack Up Unit is afloat on its own hull with its legs raised as with a Field Tow, but, for many Units, additional precautions must be made.

A drill ship is a vessel with a drilling rig and station-keeping equipment for drilling oil fields in deepwater. Drill ships have a larger payload capacity than semi-submersible drilling vessels, but face shortcomings in terms of their motion characteristics.

Figure illustrates a drill ship. A jackup rig is a mobile, self-elevating drilling platform equipped with legs that are lowered to the ocean floor until a foundation is established for support, at which point the hull is raised. Where oil rigs go to die. Ina rig called Ocean Viking had been idly and unhopefully prospecting in this region, when a worker named Stale Salvensen, down on .This results in a bifurcation of the drilling fleet for both the jackup and floater rig classes and is evidenced by the higher specification drilling rigs generally operating at higher overall.
