CJ43 Jack-up

A Modern Replacement for Specific Footprints


The CJ43 is a three legged cantilever type jack-up drilling rig which is part of the well-established GustoMSC CJ series. The series consists of seven distinct types for moderate and harsh environment designs. Based on the successful CJ46, the CJ43 is primarily intended for use in fields where a specific footprint is required due to earlier campaigns. The CJ43 is today’s best-in-class solution for these existing fields due to its robust and modern design and unequalled performance. It can operate in water depths up to 375ft worldwide. The innovative X-Y cantilever skidding system provides a large drilling envelope of 80x44ft and additional free deck space.
