Here's a question. I know they are flaring, what is the chance of those flares igniting the gas pocket?

"...it has Assumption Parish sheriff and local residents ordered to evacuate worried about a catastrophic explosion, one according to scientists in an Examiner investigation, would be in the range of one and a half B83 thermonuclear (hydrogen) bombs."

Ya I've read what they think the explosion would be like but my question is what are the chances of that flaring going on (more than one site) igniting the whole damn thing? What kind of safety precautions do these flaring sites have, if any? Anyone ever do this type of work and can tell us?

The flares are up high, I think the science is that the gas stays down low and hugs the ground, and the flaring is done high to prevent such explosions. On erigs they are normally put in a spot where the prevailing wind takes gas away from the flare, but I suppose that part doesn't matter here.
