Modularised and Pile Elevated Drilling Rig
Modularised and Pile Elevated Drilling Rig is one of the drilling rig design concepts for shallow water environments.
1. Water depth range: 2 – 10m
2. Low environment impact. Installation and removal of piles may be complex.
3. Suitable for ice. Piles dimensions and clearance could be designed so that berms and/or ice rubble makers are not necessary.
4. Suitable for exploration. Designing the rig to cantilever over the side of barge would permit low numbers of production wells to be drilled.
