Offshore Equipment

Drilling Barges:

Barges are small and compact drilling platform, suitable for shallow water operations, for initial prospecting of oil or regular deepening of well head. They are more mobile and technically less complicated to operate and maneuver. The hull structure is mostly rectangular in shape without self-propellant. They are moored to bed either in sea, river catchment area or in a lake, and can drill up to a depth of 2000m to 5000m. Barges contain the following system/equipment: - Drilling platform supported by the cantilever structure on movable substructure, - Derrick structure along with draw works, - Pipe handling system, - Power plant, - BOP Equipment: diverter, stack and control system, - Mud handling and Treatment, - Cranes, - Storage area to handle bulk material like cement, drilling water, fuel for generator and Mud tanks, - Accommodations for Staff: normally for about 70 to 100 persons with helideck.

Jack-Up rigs:

Unlike barges, which is suitable for near shore operation with calm weather, the jack-up rigs can operate in harsh weather conditions in violate sea. The high tech rigs in a triangle shaped hull, supported by three legs can move up and down depending on water level in the sea. Due to stable mooring facility, they can operate at high speed to a depth of 8000m. Like barge, they are not self-propellant. Jack-up rigs contain the following system/equipment: - Drilling platform supported by the cantilever structure on movable substructure, - Derrick structure along with draw works, - Pipe handling system, - Power plant, - BOP Equipment: diverter, stack and control system, - Mud handling and Treatment, - Cranes, - Storage area to handle bulk material like cement, drilling water, fuel for generator and Mud tanks, - Accommodations for Staff: normally for over 100 persons, - Helideck on cantilever structure. - Jack-up facility up to 200m


These types of drilling rigs are capable of operating in deep sea to the depth of 3000m with high-tech dynamic positioning system to maintain its station or with a pre-laid mooring. The hull structure is normally consists of a platform with four legs and its drilling operation located at the center. Most of the equipment and systems are built around the legs with the support of cantilever. This configuration enhances the flexibility of operation of the rigs to carryout simultaneous activities thus, reducing the drilling time and cost of operation. Apart from standard equipment, stated in jack-up rigs, they have equipped with: - State of the art drilling facilities can drill up to a depth of 10000m measured from subsoil level, - Optimized hull structure facilitate in deep drilling at faster rate, - Dynamic positioning system, - Offline capability enhances the efficient and safe operation, - Back-up facility for all main equipment cut-down the down time and saves the operation cost, - Can accommodate more than 150 crew members at a time. CES for the past several years have associated with offshore partners in retrofitting and modernization of various Barges and Platform in the following areas:

Blow-Out Preventers (BOP) Stack

The main constituents of BOP equipment are Annular BOP, Stack BOP, Gate Valves, Ram door opener and a Working platform for easy access and maintenance of BOP. The Operating pressure of BOP varies from 3000PSI to 15000PSI depending upon the requirements. The function of BOP during the drilling operation is to control the sudden surge in well pressure or massive kick-out, through a hydraulically operated ram to close the well with or without drill pipe. It facilitates change of drill pipe even under moderate well pressure. BOP stakes is also equipped with choke and kill manifold to send the Drilling fluid (mud) to well in case of kick. Thus, the BOP controls all phases of drilling operations effectively through, hydraulically, remote controlled panels in the Rig/barge.

Drilling Deck

Drilling deck, where drilling operation performed, is mounted on hull structure with the aid of movable cantilever beams directly below derrick. It houses various associated equipment/machinery, such as, draw works, rotary table, Kelly drive, drill line, drill string and derrick with drill pipe stand. Below the drill floor flow line is located through bell nipple to facilitate the return of drilling fluid (mud) to mud tanks. CES has also carried out modification in moon pool area to accommodate foldable BOP storage area, cellar deck, pathways, mud lab etc.


Helideck is an integral part of the main structure of barges, jack-ups and semi-submergible to facilitate smooth transport of men and materials from main land. Helidecks are either mounted outboard with cantilever support or above the accommodation block and located mainly on the AFT side A typical cantilever type Helideck Thus, this vital support system of all offshore operation is positioned in such a way to enable easy access in landing and departing of helicopters. Helideck is used as a primary escape route for the personnel to move away from hazards in case of emergencies. The helideck includes fire protection system, fueling systems, navigation aids, lighting, emergency alarms and public address systems.

Rescue Boat

All modern drill rigs are provided with a rescue boat, apart from inflatable boats, which can be operated through winches to lower the personnel from deck in case of emergencies to getaway as far as away from site. The rescue boat shelter is built near the accommodation block on a cantilever beam structure, with access ways and crew assembly area, in such a way that the boats can be lowered to sea water directly. CES has carried out helideck and rescue boat structure modifications, retrofits, additional safety facilities for various drill rigs and barges.


Cranes play important role in drilling operation of rigs/barges efficiently. Cranes are oriented in the barges/drill rigs at AFT-STBD and AFT-PORT side of the with boom length of 30 to 40m and safe lifting capacity from 30000kgs to 50000kgs.
