SIMOP on Jack up Rigs
30 July 2018
Hi All,

I would appreciate if any one of you can share SIMOP matrix for a Jack up rig and what changes or up gradation required at rig to meet SIMOP requirements.
Any case study with cost estimate will be appreciated.Thank you

In general, beyond the ability to achieve the required air gap (and the changes that increase will generate) and provide for the necessary POB, there are no changes needed to the rig.  I suggest you start with PetroWiki and the SPE publications, you should be able to find a lot of hard data there.

Also, be advised that cost estimates are highly specific to the project ... and some or many of the actual costs for a SIMOPS program may not even be able to be separated out from a conventional drill-then-complete program.
