[quote:Esoteric Morgan:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMzNzgxODg5X0FBQzU3MTFG] [quote:Anonymous Coward 25075586:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMzNzc2NjYzX0MxOEEzN0VE] [quote:Anonymous Coward 25023771:MV8xOTUxNjAzXzMzNzc2NDg4X0NCNUYxNzg1] This has gone so far from the original concern, that the sinkhole would reach a butane-filled cavern, that I've lost track. How is that problem? Did it turn out to be not explosive after all? [/quote] why should it be. salt caverns are being used for natural gas storage all over the tri-state area, and have been for the past 75 years. the intelligent question would be "where the hell did all that gas come from?" [/quote] [b][color=red] EDIT, the pdf found at the bottom of my NEXT comment is probably a good choice to look at first. At he end of, there are large color maps [/color][/b] ===================================== I found this assessment today: Executive Summary—2002 [color=red]Assessment of [b]Undiscovered[/b] Oil and Gas Resources [/color]of the Cretaceous Travis Peak and Hosston Formations, Jurassic Smackover Interior Salt Basins Total Petroleum System, in the East Texas Basin [b]and [/b][b]Louisiana-Mississippi Salt Basins Provinces[/b] http://pubs.usgs.gov/dds/dds-069/dds-069-e/REPORTS/69_E_CH_4.pdf I tried to copy a part of the summary, but, its 2 column nature screwed it up. There is a map showing these assets. I think this might help answer some of you question. The map this as one HUGE area. [/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."
