The storage sites connect with Acadian Gas Pipeline Company, Gulf South Pipeline Company, and Florida Gas Transmission. Maximum withdrawal was listed as 1.1 bcf per day. uh.. :abomb: [/quote] "Since June, the community centered within the latest south Louisiana oil and gas disaster, Bayou Corne has been having earthquakes caused by a powerful but unknown underground source. "They're very possibly related. One of the ways they might be related is that the earthquakes are the things that happen first and the gas may bubble out just because of all the shaking, but we don't know that and it could be something else as well," said Stephen Horton, a University of Memphis researcher. U.S. Geological Survey seismological recordings from a station near the northern Assumption Parish community of Bayou Corne show a series of earthquakes occurred on June 8 and July 3, Horton told locals, as reported by the Advocate. The USGS station was then picking up quakes as far away as White Castle, about five miles from Bayou Corne." Looks like USGS has been keeping these quakes off the maps and away from the public.:hiding: [/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."
