What is a jackup drilling rig?

    The jack-up drilling rig is a movable platform which is able to stay in one location on the ocean floor. It includes a number of legs to prop it up, these legs aren’t lowered until the platform has been guided to the correct location,  these legs are then jacked down onto the ocean bottom. The legs of a jack-up drilling rig prop the hull of the barge above the reach of the ocean and the waves produced therein.
