ABSTRACT A commonly held i“ndus try viewpoint is that deep water (WD) jackup (250-350 ft Plus a WD) iS the preferred rig type over shallow water semis ubmersible (6OO-1OOO “ft WD) from almost including any viewpoint risk, a nd cost, operational efficiency, potential rig downtime. A time study was various operational with conducted time a thst show from the scenarios jackup/semisubmersible starts to move on casing location to dtill out of surface should on (SEMI) the semisubmeraible average perform the operation in 1.8 to over 4.7 days faster than a deep water well permanent for jackup. Also the the abandonment to moving off location, SEMI on average will be able to accomplish the same in 0.6 to 1.5 plus daye faster Summing the than a deep water jackup. start and finish operation for the well, averare assuming a good , on the SEMI steady, reasonably trouble free operation for both type units should be quicker by With current contract 2.4 to ti.2 daya. day ratea, and coet of wellheads, casing, rental of BOP, etc., a shallow water SEMI cost will generally be less total well than a deep water jackup.

I water deptha (WD) of less than 200 fee the overall a nd economics operating efficiency of shallow water jack-up generally favora then over a shallow wate semi-submersible (SEMI). However the s called deep water jack-up (DtfJr.r), whic can operate in water depths of 200-30 feet and particularly those from 300-37 plus feet, have become considerably large than earlier designs and have become muc more costly thsn the standard shallow water SE141 available in the Gulf of Mexic Due to experience, the lessening (GOM). of the “mystique” and viewed complexity o floating drilling, and in conjunction wit inherent operational o characteristics both units, it can now be said that i many cases a shallow SEMI water ca operate more with les efficiently, downtime r=, and thus less cost then deep water jack-up. It is the purpose o this paper EC. present a number of point via inherent operating characteristic, risk, economics, etc., for both type unit that demonstrate the above qualitative statement.
