When using a subsea BOP with a jackup, factors like SIMOPS can be considered – in terms of landing the Christmas tree while drilling another well. A jackup can run a Christmas tree on the drill pipe, either assembling the tree on the Texas deck or delivering it to the Texas deck as one piece with the aft crane. With semis, even in a benign environment, such SIMOPS activities are usually avoided due to too many risks with the subsea BOP, the marine riser and the subsea infrastructure.
