Werribee offshore oil rig?

Post by Robbie1950 » Sun May 24, 2020 12:52 pm

In all seriousness there is something off Werribee the last week or so that resembles an oil rig. Anyone have info on this?

Sorry for the poor photo, couldn't zoom in anymore.

Part of China's One Belt One Road strategy.

So does this mean that landbased fishos will get access to deeper water off Werribee once the island is finished :)
