This year’s festival ran Saturday August 16.

Energy Matters – Canadian Geographic cover shot

We just snagged the cover of the June 2013 Canadian Geographic magazine for their feature story, Energy Matters, 13+ Things You Don’t Know About Energy.

We made this shot of riser and drill pipe in the Moon Pool of the semi-submersible offshore drill rig, Eirik Raude owned by Ocean Rig

We also have a few other shots from the Newfoundland offshore oil fields inside so grab a copy on the newsstand this week and enjoy a good magazine for a change.
