Arctic Experiences
Our Family
Alberta Oilfields

In July 1976 Panarctic Oils Ltd. organized a trip for wives of employees to visit the work sites in the arctic.
This picture of my wife, Paulette, and myself was taken at the base camp at Rea Point on Melville Island.

Arctic Experiences
1973 - 1986

This site has photographs taken during my 13 years in the Canadian Arctic Islands with Panarctic Oils Ltd.

Here you will find photographs of the men, animals, landscape and equipment used in the search for oil in the Arctic.

I hope you find it interesting and that you will come back again for a visit.

This site will grow as quickly as I have time to add new pictures. I will also add pictures from other contributors (see Chapter 4 and Chapter 5)

We hope you like what we have done, please let us know by signing the guest book.

There are links at the top and bottom of this page to my genealogy site and to a site with pictures from the Alberta Oilfields. There are also links to my brothers' sites - Mark's sailing experiences, Duncan's experiences as a trucker, and Alan's memories of life in a northern mining town.
