I’ve received a few e-mails from folk asking about “rigmover”. What do I do? Well as part of a small team we move and position rigs at sea. Once a rig has drilled a hole and successful or not the hole will be plugged and the rig will move off to drill another. There are two types of rigs we move, Semi-Submersible and Jack-up’s. Semi’s float on large pontoons and are held in place by 8 0r 12 large anchors, Jack-ups have long legs that lower or rise to place the hull of the rig in the water (for towing) or to lift the hull out of the water for drilling operations.

This was my very first rig move and one of my first photo’s taken on the job, We are under tow as we pass a platform with a Jack-up along side it (Jack-up is on the right). I will start posting more work photo’s, I need to remind myself, if it wasn’t for my job I wouldn’t be able to travel so much.
