Application of Analytic Hierarchy process (AHP) in the Layout of Jack-Up Drilling Platform

The scientific and reasonable layout of jack-up drilling platform can improve the efficiency and safety of drilling platform operation. Through the application of analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and the establishment of comprehensive evaluation and analysis model, this paper analyzes the commonly used drilling platform layout scheme and optimizes the scheme to meet operational requirements and to improve the ability of the drilling platform operation.
