The Jack-up Rig is essentially a mobile platform that is employed as exploratory drilling platform & offshore platform which comprises of a light hull with transportable legs along with holding the competence of lifting the hull over the sea surface. The Light hull is a water-tight barge that glides on the surface of the water & employed to transport all machinery to a specific position. In addition, the Rigs are enormous structures or machines containing of mud tanks, mud pumps, derrick or mast, draw works, rotary table, drill string, power generation equipment and auxiliary equipment. Rigs are effectively utilized in drilling a wellbore. Some rigs are employed on water and frequently built on ships or barges whereas, some rigs are predestined to be utilized on surface.
