12 Rigs of Christmas 2015: Day 7: Red Dog Rig 1

1 12 2015

On the first day of Christmas, the toolpush gave to me… Red Dog Drilling Rig 1.

Last year I posted 12 Rigs of Christmas, and it was a big hit. So here’s the 2015 version.

This rig was shot in 2013.

There’s something interesting about this rig – it’s the only one that I’ve shot that is no longer in operation. Well, to a point. You see, Red Dog rebuilt their initial rig, using certain components, into Rig 5. I like to think of it as the mythical phoenix, the bird that is reborn out of its own ashes (although no ashes were involved to my knowledge.)  I haven’t had the opportunity to shoot it as Rig 5 yet, but maybe some day.

The Red Dog Rig 1 gallery can be found here – Red Dog Rig 1.

If you’re looking for more rigs, check out the master drilling gallery here. You can find Red Dog Rig 3, Rig 3 and Rig 4 there as well.
