I think the one comment about the earthquake years ago makes an excellent point. The poster had refered to an earthquake in the bayou is like shaking a bowl of jello. Either that was no taken into consideration when building or it should not have been built there to begin with. That said, how is this going to effect all other construction. This has the potential to make 100's if not 1000's of homes and businesses unhabital. Just to dangerous. What if they get a decent sized earthquake and things begin sinkng to quickly for people to get out of harms way? Those caves are all over the place down there, one wrong move/shake could breech one or more of them. Or so I would think. That whole place is at or below sea level. Maybe people need to invest in pontoons for the house foundation..haha But really, might want to consider seeing if there would be an affordable way to make the houses more pliable, so that if there is an earthquake the structure will not collapse and will allow people to get out of town if need be. If I lived there I would be scared to death right now. A good friend of mine is from there, although she is no longer living there, she still has family there. I am going to ask her if she knows anything about this, I'm not sure how far away they live from Assumption.

love and prayers for all persons and friends in bayou country

someone is not being upfront about this

the locals were doing a top notch job before the state came in

now the whole place is in femas hands, so god bless and keep your heads down

(somehow I can't shake the thought of the fema guys being...ummm... lost in the swamps, while the locals laugh their butts off)

I have to agree, I don't think that there is anything that can be done to save homes and structures is a large earthquake rattles and everything starts to sink. I spoke with my friend and her family lives in NO and have not heard anything about the sinkhole.. why doesn't that surprise me? I had sent her a link, they were a bit curious.

 Quoting: Paa Tal


In the "Ghost of Isaac," while Assumption Parish officials say the storm had no impact on the sinkhole, they have released on Friday an interactive map of all the bubbling sites near and miles from the giant sinkhole but say the size of hole is still under wraps after the tropical storm force winds and rains heavy hit the area enough to force a mandatory evacuation of all residents in the parish.

"We have received several inquiries about updated measurements of the sinkhole; however, until access is granted back into the sinkhole, accurate measurements will not be available," Assumption Parish officials stated Friday in a blog post.

Despite Isaac's tropical storm force winds and rains heavy enough to force a mandatory evacuation of all residents in Assumption Parish, officials say Hurricane Isaac had no impact on a sinkhole near Bayou Corne, according to Associated Press on Friday.

"But after the storm trudged past the parish, three new bubbling gas sites were discovered Tuesday in Bayou Corne, Grand Bayou and Triche Canal," the AP reports.

Re: HUGE Louisiana sinkhole!!!!
OP
is the same thing happening here as with the BP rupture....after a large GoM storm all work had stopped...then when everyone came back the issue was gone...all reports were "all is good"
but the most important thing nobody cared about the issue after the first...."all is good" report and the masses moved on to other news stories.

and now there is talk of a second well drilling happening.
more bubbles coming up in different ares....but all we here is "All is good and safe."

did we see the story go down into the memory hole?

more and more methane bubbling up is not safe or good!

We live 40 minutes from the sinkhole. It dawned on me as I was looking at the latest picture that the sinkhole blends in with the swampy surroundings very well. How many more sinkholes might we have in south Louisiana that no one has noticed? There are so many swampy areas that don't have people living nearby and are inaccessible even by boat.

4:10 p.m. Additional Drilling Update

Per Texas Brine, on yesterday while installing a seismic monitoring station in a geo-technical core well, a sonic casing was driven down to 475′. While removing the outer casing, at 415′ they encountered a pocket of gas which blew grout and mud out of the casing. A gauge was placed at the well head which read 180 pounds of pressure. The drilling company then went back into the casing with heavier drilling mud to complete the operation and not lose the geo-technical core well which is currently setting before the technological equipment can be installed.

wtf does THAT mean???
there are just random "pockets of gas" that they don't know about and cannot even foresee while drilling that can explode?
this sounds like russian roulette

Re: HUGE Louisiana sinkhole!!!!
Contrary to what most folks think, random gas pockets can be hit while drilling almost any well - even deep water wells. There are lots of tests done prior to drilling for oil, but there is no way to predict with 100% accuracy whether there are any gas pockets in the path of the drill bit.

My family members have been in the oil business for about 40 years, and my hubby has been on numerous drilling rigs when new wells were being drilled. Everyone on-site is schooled in safety procedures in case a gas pocket is hit - some have enough pressure to blow all the pipe back out of the hole, but even smaller pockets can cause equipment failures that will allow gas to escape and catch on fire. My dad was severly injured in just such an instance.

A working oil derrick can be a dangerous place.

I've been rather nervous about what the rig currently drilling into the salt dome will encounter - I haven't read whether they intentionally left the dome pressured up or not. If they did, that could be an incredibly dangerous operation, whether they hit random gas pockets or not!
