China’s homemade deep-sea drilling platform completes sea trial. China’s sixth-generation homemade deep-sea semi-submersible drilling platform has successfully completed its deep-sea trial, local media reported, marking a further improvement in China’s capability of manufacturing high-end deep-water drilling rigs. Offshore Semi Submersible Drilling Rigs. An image of some components included on an offshore drilling rigs. Examples: Mud pump, hydro-pneumatic subsurface accumulator system for blowout preventor, hydro-pneumatic skid package system for blowout preventer remote control, and drill pipe.
Semi-Submersible Drilling Rig Drilling Contractor Hartlepool End-Client: Date: Location: Scope of Work: • Detailed rigging survey • Detailed QuikDeck® platform design and load calculations • Full encapsulation and subsequent calculation package under wind load • Design, planning and deployment of ‘end-to-end’ system from. The semi-submersible drilling rig Songa Encourage is DP-3 platform, designed for efficient year around drilling, completion, testing and intervention operations. It is equipped for up to meters water depth, and the flexible design allows for future deepwater and arctic operations which can be implemented by minor upgrades.

The first semi-submersible floating production platform was the Argyll FPF converted from the Transworld 58 drilling semi-submersible in for the Hamilton Brothers North Sea Argyll oil field.
As the oil industry progressed into deeper water and harsh environments, purpose-built production semi-submersible platforms were designed. Bythe number of submersible drilling rigs had increased to around InShell Oil successfully converted an existing submersible rig Blue Water Rig No.1 into the first semi submersible drilling unit for operation in the Gulf of Mexico when it was found to have good stability and motions whilst being towed at a partial draught.
John Halkyard, in Handbook of Offshore Engineering, History of the Semi-Submersible. Semi-submersibles evolved from a drilling vessel type called a “submersible,” which operated sitting on bottom in fairly shallow water and provided a working deck well above the highest expected waves (see Lim and Ronalds, ).These units transited afloat on pontoons and required “stability.
Drilling Semi-Submersible. Semisubmersible rigs are floating offshore drilling units with pontoons and columns that, when flooded with water, cause the unit to partially submerge to a. An accurate and complete representation of the response of a drilling vessel to waves is a valuable engineering tool for predicting vessel performance and designing drilling equipment.
The wave response for a floating vessel may be obtained, to various degrees of accuracy, from model tests or analytical means, as described by Barkley l and Cited by: 9. The motion behaviour and strength of semi-submersible had been investigated by many distinguished scholars, such as Hooft, l Kim, Chou, 2 Skoge, Pedersen 3 The progress of research work has further improved the behaviour of semi-submersible drilling platform and has made many new types of semi-submersibles e.g.
pipe layer, floating crane and Cited by: 2. A study has been carried out to evaluate the effect of semi-submersible drilling rig motions with variation in the mooring line pre-tension to the safety of the incorporated drilling riser.
Semi. An animated look at a semi-submersible offshore platform featuring Cat C engines. Stena Drilling operates two semi-submersibles; the Stena Don and Stena Spey.
Stena Spey is a conventionally moored unit; whilst Stena Don is dynamically positioned ans is in the process of being fitted with a self-contained 8-point mooring system.
A study has been carried out to evaluate the effect of semi-submersible drilling rig motions with variation in the mooring line pre-tension to the safety of the incorporated drilling riser. Semi-Submersible Drilling Platform Mooring Chain Underwater Semi-submersible Offshore Platform - Duration: China's new homemade semi-submersible drilling rig put into operation.
Semi-submersible drilling platforms include a submersible hull and an above-water deck that are interconnected. These semi-submersible platforms are moored over the drilling site and are normally provided with a central opening through which the drilling rig is operated.

April Google Scholar /25/. Analysis of Peak Mooring Forces Caused by Slow Vessel Drift Oscillations in Random Seas. The hydrodynamic motions at this draft are very small, and this has promoted the use of semi-submersible as a stable platform for exploration drilling for offshore oil and gas.
They can be towed into position by a tugboat and anchored, or moved by and kept in position by their own ‘azipod’ propellers with dynamic positioning by: Semi-submersible.
In the design of a semi-submersible, and its configuration in particular, a clear idea of the functions it must perform should be in hand. These will strongly influence the configurational choices. Besides function like drilling, other functions include production, heavy lift, accommodations and operational support (surface.
SEMI-SUBMERSIBLES. During the 70's, 80's, and 90's, F&G's world class Pacesetter and Trendsetter designs enjoyed unparalleled success with over 48 of this type of semi-submersibles built. One of the primary challenges for F&G in accommodating the demand for deeper drilling was the need to.
Semi submersible 1. Definition A semi-submersible (semi submerged ship) is a specialized marine vessel with legs/pontoons for buoyancy to float, and weight to keep the structure upright, which used in a number of specific offshore roles as, • offshore drilling rigs, • heavy lift cranes, • oil production platforms, • safety vessels.
The Semi-submersible Early history. Semi-submersible rigs make stable platforms for drilling for offshore oil and gas. They can be towed into position by a tugboat and anchored, or moved by and kept in position by their own azipod propellers with dynamic positioning.
ARCTIC S 3 SEMI-SUBMERSIBLE DRILLING UNIT The complete drilling system is enclosed to provide an acceptable working environment. Because of the integrated design of the BOP handling system, the substructure is flush with the main deck of the vessel. Materials can therefore be handled in a safe Size: KB.
