Cantilever structure is a very important component of Jack-up drilling rig, which improve well numbers, flexibility and efficiency of drilling operation during the preloading process. The load cases of the cantilever system are complex, whose structural strength is a key factor of whole drilling rig safely operating in offshore[1], this paper design and research a new and safe load test solution to verify the structure strength of cantilever and drilling rig body whether meet the design requirements or not[2], through simulate normal drilling operation condition by top drive hanging test barge, pipe rack and set back area piled steel blocks. This solution will apply in POD-5 Jack-up project, and the test results will prove the safety and feasibility of this test solution.
