Flat Stanley on the drill rig floor

Ron:

Welcome to the rig floor! Here you see how our men work on a drill pipe.

Flat Stanley:

Thank you Ron! The workers here on the drill rig told me that they screw together 30 meter lengths of steel pipe and send them down through a hole in the middle of the ship called the moon pool. It takes miles of pipe to make it all the way to the seafloor. And then we can start drilling!
