Breaking news: New oil sheen near site of Deepwater Horizon disaster Quoting: Earth Cries

Snip: Experts had predicted such oil leaks would likely take place after the Deepwater Horizon rig was capped. That’s because the blocked oil continues to seek a path to the surface, and that could create fissures or cracks in the sea floor for the hydrocarbons to escape.
This situation is exactly what we’d warned about in 2010 — that the rig diaster, caused by BP’s reckless and foolish actions, would continue to wreak havoc on the Gulf environment for years to come.
Connect the dots to the sinkhole.
As an FYI in relation to this-
Somewhere last night I read that the napoleonville Salt Dome is one of 3 highly desirable oil/gas drilling locations. right now I don't see where I read that.
There has been and is a lot of fracking going on there.
Much to my surprise since I keep hearing how our currently operational oil reserves are insufficient, I was shocked to find that the land is being leased to out of nation companies. (yes I realize BP is british, but I'm so used to it, I forget)
Grand Gulf out of perth, has rights to 33,00 to 35,300 acres for a 3d seismic shoot and drill in Napoleon salt dome area. They have a 25% interest and have leased out to other companies, one being Golden Gate (australia) which gets a percentage of profit and cost. Shooting, which I will explain in a second started in 2007 if not before. The golden Gate link is from 2010. Phase A is 3d seismic shoot, phase B is 3d drilling.
3d seismic shoot and drilling both refer to seismic reflectivity. If you wikipedia that, you find reflection seimology. it says that a Viboseis or dynamite is used. It is the princples of frequency reflection used by haarp. In mining it has been used as survey since 60's. Either RF frequency or electromagnetic frequenmcy is used at speed of sound.
So the fracturing instability has been ongoing and increasing and apparently the napoleonville salt dome and salt domes in general is/are a preferred location.

for those intested, the appendix goes into detail about the salt dome geology and the relation to drilling and low cost high yield
