[quote:BarbToo:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMzNTMwOTU3XzdCQjVCRjFE] [quote:Paa Tal:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMzNTI4NTk0X0JGQzc1OTkw] Morning Fly over! [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_Wg9hpwbU4&feature=plcp[/youtube] [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2SJv8hromuA&feature=plcp[/youtube] We’ve received notification just minutes ago that the bit on the snubbing rig has to be changed. This will push back drilling operations 12-15 hours. http://assumptionla.wordpress.com/2012/09/21/945-a-m-rig-update/ [/quote] Look at the trees around the drill site in the video. They're all turning white and dying. I don't think the drill site is 'that' close to the original sinkhole. If we've got the same kind of tree damage at some distance from the sinkhole, whatever's FUBARed under there is HUGE and OMG, something bad's getting ready to happen. Reminds me of what happened when they accidentally drilled into the salt dome under Lake Peigneur. OMG!! [/quote]
The initially estimated 200 by 200 feet sinkhole that developed late last week, swallowing ancient cypress trees 100 feet tall near Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou communities in south Louisiana, is now reported to be 380 feet deep with a diameter of 372 feet, filled mainly with salt water with traces of diesel fuel, and only 1,500 feet from a cavern filled with butane, according to Tuesday morning news. Analysts' reports further hint that Texas Brine Company's cavern failed, but the butane cavern failing is today's worst-case scenario.
If a nearby butane-filled cavern fails, as it appears the brine cavern did,
"it could cause an explosion felt up to two miles away."
