  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Oil-Laden Core-Dr. Maurice Ewing (left), of Lamont Geological Observatory, looks at a piece of oil-laden sedimentary core being held by Dr. J. Lamar Worzel, also of Lamong. The two noted geophysics were Co-Chief Scientists on the first leg of the Deep Sea Drilling Project. The oil core was recovered at the Sigsbee Knoll in the Gulf of Mexico in 11,743 feet of water with drill bit penetration 480 feet threough the floor of the Gulf. Holding the plastic core container at the right is Jim Dean, of Mobile Oil who was Cruise Operations Manager aboard the drill ship, Glomar Challenger

  8. First Re-Entry Core Crew - It was a historic occasion early in the morning on Monday, June 15, 1970, when the first re-entry procedure core was hoisted on the drilling floor of D/V Glomar Challenger. Engineers, drilling crew members and scientists hold pieces of the gray, hemipelagic sediment. Back row, left to right, Leon Blurton, Global Marine Inc Project Officer for re-entry; Benneth E. Brunot, SSDSP Project Manager, and V.F. (Swede) Larson, DSDP Operations Manager. Second row, A.C. Wheeler, Max Stillwell, Dan Womack, Travis Rayburn and Homer Smith of the drilling crew. Rayburn was drilling superintendent. Front row, Dr. Terry Edgar, DSDP Coordinating Staff Geologist, DSDP Chief Scientist Dr. M.N.A. Peterson, Charles Simon and Art Bedwell of the drilling crew
