(KFWB 980) – There are some pretty unique features to this city, including those oil islands right off the downtown shoreline.

We learned those towers that look like condos are actually oil rigs that move around the islands to tap into the various wells.

In the second part of our trip to Island White – one of four of the so-called THUMS islands – we learn more about what they do out there from guide Bill McFarland with Occidental Petroleum.
