Abstract: A rotary subterranean drill capable of detecting an excessive downhole pressure condition and automatically remediating the causal condition of the detected excessive pressure condition. A pressure detector coupled to a drill string of the rotary subterranean drill can sense an excessive downhole pressure condition that exceeds a predetermined value. When an excessive downhole pressure condition is sensed at the pressure detector drag members are automatically disengaged from the borehole, thereby permitting rotation of the anchorable exterior portion within the borehole. A rotary subterranean drill capable of detecting an excessive downhole pressure condition and automatically remediating the causal condition of the detected excessive pressure condition. A pressure detector coupled to a drill string of the rotary subterranean drill can sense an ...more ...less
