Jack-up platforms are a type of mobile offshore drilling unit designed to provide stable support for various types of operations in the petroleum industry for the exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons from the seabed. This type of design of jack-up platforms is based on several factors, including water depth, soil conditions, environmental loads, and platform performance requirements. The platform must be designed to withstand the forces of wind, waves, and currents, as well as the weight of the drilling or production equipment. This article provides a summary of the conception, building, installation, operation, and analysis of jack-up structures. It highlights the different types of jack-up platforms, their components, and the various factors that are considered during their design, construction, and installation.

Keywords : Jack up platforms, Design, Operation, Construction, Installation, and Analysis.
