The proposed underwater exploratory drilling rig guarantees the sinking of wells in specified geological conditions with observance of safety requirements, environmental friendliness and high quality of works at a relatively low cost. The machine is a part of the drilling complex, which in addition to the machine usually includes: a base vessel, a lowering-raising system, a power supply system, a control, monitoring and protection system, an emergency system, etc.
