Beyond the Frontier

Top of page

Beyond the Frontier documents three approaches to Arctic oil exploration, including Esso Resources' artificial island technology and Dome's ice-island construction. This film gives an impression of what it is like to be on a drill ship in McKinley Bay, fighting a storm on an artificial island thirty km off Tuktoyaktuk, and building an ice island 2800 km north of Edmonton.

1983, 22 min 35 s
