"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

My World -- industry III

To visit more My World hit the site!
Continuing on with my industry posts, the third thing that keeps this area going, is the oil field.  
Just outside of town is an area that has these oil wells.   Across the way was a smaller one that was pumping.  They turn them on and off as needed, this one was off.
Across the highway, we see some other oil field highlights.  Pictured above is where they heat the oil for moving.
These are crude oil storage tanks.  Behind these in the hills are more oil wells.
In town, is stored the pipes used in the field.  
More pipes.
I was lucky as we headed out to see if a rig might be parked in the yard.  Pictured here is a work-over rig and a dog house.  The dog house is the get out of the weather, eat and change area for the workers.
Another angle on the rig.

Carrie/Troy: What a neat look the industries of your world. That was some neat information on the oil field production.

Thanks so much for the tour neighbour. Montana and my home province of Saskatchewan have lots in common.

Not something I like looking at, but I guess we have to produce what we can rather than buying it overseas. We have small pumps scattered around in fields here....and we have coal mining.

When I was little I remember driving by the oil fields in Southern California. Some of the pumps were decorated like huge insects with bouncy antennae. I always got such a kick out of seeing them. Now I live a long ways north. This is my first time at That's My World. I would like to introduce you to my town, Powell River, BC. -- Margy
