A mobile submersible drilling structure consisting of a barge hull that rests on bottom, steel posts that rise from the top of the barge hull, and a deck that is built on top of the posts, well above the waterline.

It is used to drill wells in water no deeper than about 30-35 feet (9-10.7m).

Most posted barge submersibles work in inland gulfs and bays.
