ESD Staffers returned from their field trip (in early October 2007) to Otway, Australia and have these photos to share. Here's what Barry Freifeld (Hydrogeology) had to say about their experience. "We have successfully landed the assembly in the borehole. The most amazing thing was lifting the entire 120 ft-long bottomhole assembly and dropping it in using a 70-to crane and a 15-ton crane to perform a two-crane-lift over the borehole. It was a Herculean effort to get everything down in three days but the workover crews were great. Every few hours a new weather front would come through and dump buckets of water down on us."
