  51. Initial Drill for Re-Entry - This 14 7/8 inch four roller cone tungsten carbide insert roller bit is used to drill the initial hole after the re-entry cone has been landed on the ocean bottom. It is used to run the 16-inch casing which is hung below the cone. Then comes the 11 3/4-inch casing necessary to prevent deep penetration holes from filling up with debris. A similar 10-inches in diameter is used to drill the remainder of the hole.

  54. Dynamic Positioning and Re-Entry. Schematic diagram showing general arrangements allowing positioning of the drilling vessel in deep water and technique of drill hole re-entry. The re-entry cone, on the sea floor, is 16 ft. in diameter and is mounted on steel casing in the upper part of the borehole, where it is inserted as the initial borehole is started. When the casing and core are fully in place, the assembly is detached from the drill string and the hole is drilled deeper. To change a bit, for example, the drill string is recovered to the ship, the bit is changed, and then again lowered to just above the cone. The vessel is moved as necessary to position the bit directly above the cone, as seen by side scanning sonar, at which time re-entry is made by lowering the pipe.

  72. Entering Bethlehem Steel's Hoboken, N.J., Shipyard is the Glomar Challenger, unique deep sea drilling ship which recently brought up the oldest sediments yet recovered from the world's ocean basins -- Middle Jurassic limestone 160 million years old. The cores were recovered in the Atlantic in waters three miles deep, and they will be used to interpret the formation and early history of that ocean. This ocean-bottom coring, known official as the Deep Sea Drilling Project, is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and is under the management of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, of the University of California at San diego. Scientists who participated in this historic phase of the proejct described their findings at a news conference in New York city today (June 1). While at the Bethlehem Hoboken Yard the Glomar Challenger will take on additional supplies for the next portion of the project. Owned by Global Marine, Inc., the twin-screw, diesel-engined craft has a length of 400 feet, beam of 65 feet, and draft of 20 feet. Her derrick top is 194 feet above water level

  85. Dynamic Positioning-Drawing shows how the Deep sea drilling Project ship, Glomar Challenger, remains on station while working in water depths up to 20,000 feet. Dynamic positioning usersa computerized system of pulses from acoustic beacons on the ocean floor which are picked up by a ship mounted hydrophone array, fed into a computer, and translated into corrective action by propulsion units (tunnel thrusters and ship propellers) which automatically keep the Challenger precisely on station. The drawing also shows the flexibility of the drill string which weighs 400,000 pounds at a water depth of 20,000 feet.
