The first tunnel, which was discovered on Tuesday, is equipped with lighting, and a crude oil rail system. Its entrance in the U.S. is located in a warehouse - a small area measuring 70-foot (21-meter) shaft, covered by a cement cap.

The other tunnel is a rather sophisticated one, with a complex electric rail system.
