#5798 Working on Oil Pipeline by JVPD
Black and white photo of men working on oil pipeline, 1944. America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. The largest oil pipeline ever laid runs from the U.S. southwest state of Texas eastward to the Atlantic coast, a distance of almost 1,400 (2240 kilometers) miles, over which 300,000 barrels of oil every day is being pumped to help supply the enormous war demands of the armed forces of the U.S. and the United Nations. The pipeline is 24 inches in diameter and cost $95,000,000 to complete. The section being laid in the ground has been given a coat of hot asphalt paint. The building of the pipeline insured a steady flow of fuel oil from the oil fields to Atlantic coast ports. [0003-0702-1621-2619] by 0003
