AN "OIL ISLAND"-LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA Some distance offshore, a perimeter of rocks quarried from Catalina Island is piled up on the ocean floor until it rises high above the waves. Sand and silt are dredged in to fill the area within the rocky outline. Then, oil wells are drilled, to tap pools of black gold below. ADDRESS SceniKrome* FROM Golden West®, 700 W.
