Thanks for the find Raymond. In light of me writing the feature "Black Gold" about the Nigerian oil industry, I've discovered we're having our own clandestine oil war right here in LA. Have you always wondered what the flowered-pattern tower spewing out smoke next to Beverly High is on Olympic? Or that inconspicuous DWP building on Pico, just east of Bevery Dr? I had a sneaking feeling, this confirmed it. My only qualm with the video is the host keeps referring to all these sub-neighborhoods as West Hollywood. Nowhere in LA does Pico even come close to running through WeHo. Nevertheless here's VBS exploring LA's oil underground..
