#Oi2020: Drill Bit Rescue from 30,000 ft.

Mack Ponder to perform the rescue—he retrieved the pipe sections and drill bit from 30,019 feet deep. Drilling was then resumed at the site (about 12 miles west of Cordell)—with the well setting a world record at the time – and remains one of the deepest ever drilled. Marine Technology Reporter has been commissioned to publish the Official “Oceanology International 50th Anniversary Edition” which will distribute with the MARCH 2020 edition of MTR.

a higher level of appreciation of technologies such as acoustics and sensors. This also included manned submersibles, which at the time, “were believed to be the answer to deep underwater exploration, taking humans beyond safe diver depth,” according to the book Advances in Marine Technology, as published by the Marine Technology Society. In fact, as this technology was developing, it was also concurrently “pushed to the sidelines by the development of ROVs, which proved the safest way to work at deep depths, marking the transition from human intervention to robotics,&rdquo
