Coming To A Neighborhood Near You...

Indiana Jones isn't the only one coming out of retirement these days. There is talk of bringing retired urban drill sites around Los Angeles back on line to squeeze the last drops out crude out of their nearly spent reserves.

KFWB AM 980's (Los Angeles) Lori Kellman has a series of podcasts reporting on the move from every possible angle (economic, environmental, NIMBY, etc.)

The largest urban drill field in L.A. is the Wilmington field and it is putting out about 40,000 barrels a day.
