We will tour the THUMS islands (an acronym of oil companies) located in the beautiful Long Beach marina. Constructed to blend with the city skyline, the tour will take you to an island to see how oil is produced in a safe and environmentally friendly manner. The oil islands were constructed in 1965 to access the Wilmington oil field, the third largest oil field in the United States. The islands are jointly operated through a public-private partnership between the city of Long Beach, state of California, and California Resources Corporation.
