The 12 Rigs of Christmas: On the first day of Christmas, my missus gave to me Stampede Drilling Rig 1

Over the years, I’ve photographed many of the rigs working in southeast Saskatchewan. It’s time to renew the 12 Rigs of Christmas! Over the next 12 days, you’ll see rigs of companies come and gone. Some are still with us. Some have changed names and colours. People have come and gone. But you know what? Our industry is still keeping our trucks fueled and our people warm.

Helium in Saskatchewan, Part 3: Our place in global production and minimizing environmental impact
