REDUCING THE ICE FORCES ON JACK-UP LEGS
Author : Tian Hua and Andrew Palmer
Jack-ups have many advantages for drilling and production in the Arctic. The technology is developed and well-understood, and a jack-up is a self-contained and operationally flexible system that can readily be installed and moved from site to site. In the Arctic, however, a disadvantage is that the legs are not ideally designed to resist the substantial forces applied by Sea ice processes. It is plainly essential that the legs remain able to lift and lower the hull, and any modification must allow for this. Field experience in the Bohai Sea and elsewhere demonstrates that ice forces on tubular
