12 Rigs of Christmas: Day 6: Precision Drilling Rig 120

10 12 2014

A little late in the day posting this to the blog, but here goes: Precision Drilling Rig 120 is the Day 6 rig of the 12 Rigs of Christmas. It was photographed on an extremely cold February day north of Macoun. I was happy to have fingers when I was done.
This photo shoot was very unique. The mineral rights owners, originally from around here, now live in BC. But they were getting a few holes drilled on their land, and they really wanted one, just one, very large canvas for their wall to remind them where the royalty cheques were coming from. The first hole was drilled by CanElson 21 that October, but I was not able to make it work out. The second hole was drilled towards the end of the winter drilling season, and that did indeed come to pass.
As for the AT-ATs attacking the rig, well, I’ve posted it a few times, because some days it feels damned appropriate.
Photos of this rig can be found here.
My other drilling rigs can be found here.
The photo lab suggested that all orders to Canada should be in by Dec. 8, or yesterday. So if you would like a print of one of these pictures, please contact me directly at brian.zinchuk@sasktel.net. I have the ability to do paper prints up to 16×20 ($75, need to be framed) or 16×32 here in Estevan, or canvas prints from 18×24 ($240), 24×36 ($500) to 36×96 ($1900). Canvas prints cost about $80 per square foot. Canvas prints especially take a fair bit of work, so you need to order early.
I also may be able to order other sizes of prints from my Canadian lab, but those would need to be ordered quickly.
Merry Christmas!
