Drilling an Oil Well - Boring by Turbine Featured Print

Drilling an Oil Well - Boring by Turbine

Drilling an Oil Well - Boring by Turbine. Liquid mud is pumped at high pressure through a non-revolving pipe to a 'turbo' drill (shown in the inset enlargement) at the bottom of the well. The casing of the 'turbo' which is fixed to the pipe and therefore cannot revolve, contains a small turbine. As the mud flows through the turbine it makes it turn. The turbine's shaft is connected with the drill through gearing, so the drill also is rotated. Having done its work, the mud escapes at the bottom of the casing and flows back to the surface outside the pipe. Date: circa 1920s

Ouled Nails Woman in Covered Camel Palanquin

An Ouled Nails woman in Southern Algeria, showing her very distinctive and elaborate traditional clothing. The women earned money through belly dancing. The women are heavily made-up, going unveiled at all times and wear their hair up, creating an incredible style. Pictured in a camel palanquin (covered litter), used to transport wives and children across the arid desert, each with a central ventilation shaft, which can double as a tall structure to alert rescuers if buried in a sandstorm in the desert. Date: circa 1904
