In orientation we learned that the JOIDES was once an exploratory oil drilling ship jointly owned by BP and Schlumberger, built in Nova Scotia in 1978. Six years later Schlumberger converted her into a scientific research vessel and changed her name, then Sedco/BP 471, to the JOIDES Resolution and leased her to the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP).
