With latitude encompassing all World Heritage sites, do any of the existing
sites, or potential sites,  have oil rigs in their visual or physical
proximity? Would the presence of the oil industry render an area unfit to
meet the criteria to be a site, i.e., The Great Barrier Reef,  as described
in clause vii., http://whc.unesco.org/en/criteria.
