A number of "pock marks" have appeared on the sea floor as far as 20 miles away from the original Macondo blow out. Oil and methane gas is escaping from areas that have never even been drilled. "Frighteningly, these fissures appear to be growing and connecting with each other. The methane pock marks are growing in size. Even worse, the weakened sea floor is being heaved up into a massive, fracturing, mound. A geological time bomb, previously locked away under miles of rock, has been disturbed. Evidence is pointing to the very grim possibility that a methane gas bubble, 15 to 20 miles in diameter, could indeed rupture the sea floor and escape with unimaginable violence. "John Kessler of Texas A & M University, said "This is the most vigorous methane eruption in modern history". The oil contains 40% methane – much higher than the usual 5%. The USGS claims that 2,900 cubic feet of gas is accompanying each barrel of oil from the well – also much higher than usual…." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSOkmBAuRg0 ,, October 10, 2012 at 4:39 pm Log in to Reply Here is a video as to the 100,000 psi under the gulf and talking about cracks on top of the gulf floor horendous gas explosion mt saint helens underwater that would blast out of the Gulf and Tidal waves 600 MPH across the Gulf [link to www.youtube.com] http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZJD_ShUHnn4 [/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."
