Drill Barge

What is a Drill Barge?

A drill barge is simple a barge equipped for oil and gas drilling, but compared to a drillship it does not have its own propulsion system and must hence be towed to the drilling site by other vessels. The drill barge is used in inland, shallow or smooth offshore areas where the water depth is typically less than 150 meters.
