It's a rig for drilling gas wells in shallow water. You sail the rig to the desired location, wind down the legs and the legs lift the platform out of the water - hence 'Jack-Up'. You can then drill for gas or oil or whatever - they were quite commonly used in the North Sea, because the weather makes it very difficult to drill with a floating rig.
