S. Korea discovers oil pipeline illegally installed by USFK during 40s and 50s

Investigators have found an oil pipeline that was illegally installed and used by US Forces Korea (USFK) in Gunsan, North Jeolla Province, in the 1940s and 50s.

Sources at South Korea’s Ministry of National Defense and the city of Gunsan told the Hankyoreh on Apr. 1 that the city and the Defense Installations Agency found the pipeline underground on a second dig near 609-29 Gaesa Neighborhood, in the vicinity of Okgu Reservoir, on Mar. 31.

The steel pipeline, with a diameter of 150mm, was buried around 70cm underground, running from Gunsan Harbor to an airfield on the US Kunsan (Gunsan) Air Base. The pipeline was presumably left there by USFK after they shut it down 40 years ago.
