Jackups

A Jack up rig is a self-contained combination drilling rig and floating barge, fitted with long support legs that can be raised or lowered independently of each other.

The jackup, as it is known informally, is towed onto location with its legs up and the barge section floating on the water. Upon arrival at the drilling location, the legs are jacked down onto the seafloor, preloaded to securely drive them into the seabottom, and then all three legs are jacked further down.
