There are three ways to move or transport a drilling rig, towed on its own buoyancy, loaded on to a towed barge or on a self-propelled heavy lift vessel. Each has a different risk profile that is influenced by the route, season, weather, sea-state, type and condition of the drilling rig.

In the next IUMI webinar, Richard Palmer, Senior Consultant for LOC Australia, will cover key areas of risk and common mitigations along with the challenges faced when selecting the type of rig move and planning for rig move operations. The presentation will tie in examples with the recently released Joint Rig Committee’s “Rig Location & Move Code of Practice” (JR2019-005).
