Sepia Scenes - Refinery View of the Tulsa Skyline

Tulsa's familiar skyline is put in another context here.  We are on the west side and and looking across the Arkansas River at downtown Tulsa through part of the large oil refinery on the immediate west side of the river.  This facility works 24/7 cracking the crude oil which is pumped out of the ground from a number active oil wells in the Tulsa area and much more piped in from the surrounding area.  Tulsa is still an oil town.

It was your urban photography which first attracted me to this blog.

Great shot. There is a gritty side of Tulsa that many people don't see. The west side of the river and the many fabrication shops in east Tulsa and the port of Catoosa. Tulsa in many ways contributes to the world energy industry.
