Jack-Up Rigs

Jack-up rigs, the most popular type of mobile offshore drilling units (MODU), are self-elevating mobile platforms with retractable legs. Today, jack up rigs are built to drill deeper and in harsher environments. Used in depths that can sometimes exceed 500 feet, the jack-up rig design provides a stable drilling environment. The complex rack and chord leg structures that allow the elevation of the platform require highly specialized steel and a complicated fabrication process.

Edgen Murray provides plate, bracing pipe and fabricated components for these versatile platforms. We have long standing relationships with leading and qualified steel manufacturers who are able to produce material that meet the stringent requirements of these rigs and work closely with experienced and capable global fabricators who specialize in creating the rack and chord structures for jack up legs. With construction across the Gulf Coast, Middle East and Asia Pacific regions, we leverage our specialized vendor network and provide global project management teams to best meet project requirements for operators worldwide.
