Welcome to Flutrackers, freedomrox! Thanks very much for the background about the caverns - that explains why TB was milling upwards
from the top of Oxy3 back in 2010. That was a big mystery to me, since I got the impression, (could be wrong), that current convention was to mill from the top down. But if the bottom of the cavern had already been mined through to shale by 1997, then they couldn't mine in that direction. Given that the 1997 diagram shows the cavern right up against the edge of the dome, maybe the cavern should have been plugged at that point, and never re-worked. (If only...)

That is very interesting about the possibility of filling the bottom of the cavern with cement. It does sound like it would have been expensive, but as you point out, look at the expenses incurred from this unprecedented geological disaster. There's the new road, the berm, all the thumping and drilling, and now the 2-month 3D seismic survey. (Like the one Golden Gate did on the north side of the dome in 2007?) Then there is the 6 month long (and counting) evacuation costs and the human toll from that.

I read about the T-Rex studying the area on your blog and in the local papers. There's a good document with photos on that equipment here:
http://esg.eri.ucsb.edu/sites/esg.er...EES@UTexas.pdf

It seems to travel all over the country studying high risk earthquake areas like Seattle, New Madrid, etc. I hope all the studies and new vents have positive results - soon!

The helicorders are really active at this time. Texas Brine was ordered to put the helis online, which they did; now they are back down to only 6 online for La. It would be great if we had some sort of situation update when we see action like what's happening today. Maybe they have already started with the vibrating equipment mentioned below?

There was a meeting yesterday but nothing has been posted yet at the parish site. However, the news covered it. It appears that the residents are understandably losing patience.

Regarding 3d seismic monitoring:
http://www.nbc33tv.com/node/39541

The credit will have to go to Sandia for having these documents available. They will email you the articles you request from this list:

https://ugsprtech.sandia.gov/Pag_Rep...g=Geotechnical

Thanks for sharing that unusual seismic pattern. It sure does look like something generated by research equipment. People are understandably worried about all the tests causing structural damage. I've never heard of anything like that happening, but it would be good to know there was insurance held to cover all possibilities.

What happened at the meeting was a joke. All brand new players, and a one Mr. "X" that kept brow-beating the audience with how he had left Brazil to come up here. He also stated he was a part of the Golden Gate proprietary survey in 2007, and that he was getting a tiny portion of that survey of the westernmost side to compare with the new VSP and 3 D survey to take place sometime this month. One more very interesting thing he did reveal was that they could not perform the 3 D surveys any further east around the other caverns due to the Danger of disturbing them.

I can provide the videos if you need them. Also the USGS heli's are gone. They have now been totally replaced with the geophones and are much more sensitive. Also, the Texas Brine Geo 3 in the 1000 ft. borehole they have been drilling should be online soon. Dr. Stephen Horton has sounded the alarm that much more seismic activity is taking place, signaling what I believe to be a continuation of the last event.

http://assumptionla.wordpress.com/

One question. Which one of the documents did you request to get the 1997 graphic, please? I would like to insert it into one of my articles.

All appreciation to you 'mixin' and others for your investigative skills.

Default Re: Louisiana: Assumption Parish Bayou Corne Sinkhole 2012

From today's parish update:
It has been reported to us, by Dr. Steve Horton, that there has been an above normal recording of seismic activity within the last few days. Should additional details or information regarding this situation become available, they will be posted.
http://assumptionla.wordpress.com/20...smic-activity/

Texas Brine also has a recent update:
1. The sinkhole has remained stable since Jan. 19, when vegetative material
rose to the surface and a small area sloughed in on the southern perimeter.
The vegetative material was corralled on the southeastern edge of the
sinkhole and is expected to be removed this coming week. No other changes
to the size or shape of the sinkhole have been observed.
2. Rehabilitation and elevation of the first segment of the access road that runs
southward from Hwy. 70 along the western side of the pipeline right-of-way
has been completed. A total of approximately 35,000 cubic yards of fill dirt
were added to raise the road elevation and also create a drill pad for a 1,000-
foot deep geophone well. Following the installation of the mat to support
the drilling rig, the first casing was driven, the rig was assembled and
drilling began early Sunday morning .
3. Construction of the square-shaped containment berm surrounding the
sinkhole has begun. Work on the southern segment is underway and
stretches from the Texas Brine site, westward across the pipeline right-of-
way to the southern end of the access road off of Hwy. 70. This road will
continue to be upgraded southward from the 1,000-foot deep geophone well
and will serve as the western boundary of the containment system. Texas
Brine’s facility site will provide containment on the eastern boundary. The
northern boundary, when complete, will connect the Texas Brine entrance
road to the access road nearer to Hwy. 70.
4. Two additional relief wells have been installed on the Texas Brine site. This
brings the total relief well count on the site to four. The first relief well,
installed in late October, continues to flare natural gas at the surface. The
other three are being prepared to start flaring next week.
Two new relief wells have been installed off site: one on the access road
near the intersection with Hwy. 70, and another on the northern side of
Hwy.70 west of the rig road entrance.
Seven additional relief wells will be installed in the area to complete Phase
II. Installation of those wells is targeted for completion by mid-February.
An additional ten (10) relief wells will be installed for Phase III as access to
properties becomes available.
5. The 3D seismic project is progressing. Project design is complete. Efforts
now are concentrated on surveying and on landowner access and permitting.
Representatives of the 3D seismic contractor are working to secure
permission from Bayou Corne homeowners to place seismic geophones on
their property. The placement of the geophones in the Bayou Corne
community, as well as all other receiver points in the project design area, is
important to the acquisition of sufficient data to generate as clear an image
as possible of the subsurface geologic conditions to a depth of 7,000 feet.
6. The passive seismic monitoring system that will replace the USGS
geophones currently in use is nearing completion. The system will be
comprised of a 480-foot deep geophone array, individual geophones placed
in six, 80-foot deep cased wells and a geophone array placed in Well #1, and
the final component, a geophone array placed in the 1000-foot deep well
being drilled adjacent to the access road west of the Texas Brine site. The
entire system is expected to be in place by mid-February. The seismic data
collected by all of the geophones in this passive system will be directed to
the same repository for analysis.
7. After being closed in for the past two weeks, the Observation Well was
opened Thursday in attempt to remove any liquid hydrocarbon remaining in
cavern #3. That process yielded no liquid hydrocarbon. The most recent
logging of the cavern indicated that floor had risen 100 feet since last
measured on Jan. 18.
8. To date, 23 pairs of LEL and H2S indoor monitors have been installed in 16
qualifying structures in the Bayou Corne community. By the middle of next
week, an additional 22 monitors are to be installed in14 other structures..
The monitors are designed to detect both the Lower Explosive Limit (LEL)
and hydrogen sulfide gas if any were to migrate into enclosed spaces in slab-
on-grade homes and structures as well as unvented spaces beneath raised
dwellings and structures. If either is detected at the preset alarm levels (10%
for LEL and 10 ppm for hydrogen sulfide) the monitor alarm will be
triggered and a signal will be transmitted to local emergency responders. To
assure transmission signal strength, a series of outside antennas have been
installed at carefully chosen locations throughout the Bayou Corne
community. To date, after over 90 indoor air sampling events by DEQ and
Texas Brine contractors, no detectable levels of LEL or hydrogen sulfide
have been found.

Thanks for the kind words, Freedomrox... and welcome to the forum.

I thought when they brought the internationally-recognized group, Itasca, to try to get some answers to the unknowns that we would finally get some good info on what's happening. Was any mention made of them in this last meeting?

Actually no mention was made of them at all.

From here you can see the presentation itself. Another meeting is supposed to be held on February 6th, if it hasn't been changed.

Good catch, freedomrox! One of the journals had published it in 1997, but looking at that again, it had been accepted in 1995, same date as in the Sandia reference, so the cavern trouble was indeed known a few years earlier than 1997.

Here's some new articles on developments in the sinkhole story.


Advocate: Residents - Insurance policies canceled

Insurance is great until you need it...


This is an article on the meeting tonight with politicians.

Advocate: Meeting gets contentious

It also has news about technical issues. The Shaw consulting group is recommending putting vent wells right in residential yards, but residents are hoping placement in the swamp or on the edges of residential areas might be adequate.

There's another scientist introduced who's going to give an independent opinion about the results of the 3D seismic survey for the state. This will be in addition to the opinion of the consultant hired by Texas Brine.

No mention of what happened to Itasca, mixin, but here is the Advocate article that reported about how their assessment about the cavern collapse differed from the first theory:
http://theadvocate.com/news/ascensio...-sinkhole-draw
Quote:
BY DAVID J. MITCHELL
River Parishes bureau
December 26, 2012
[snip]
Hecox later said that Pettitt’s work has shown that part of the running theory on the formation of the sinkhole is likely incorrect.

Hecox and other scientists had initially theorized that the cavern had a “frack out” of brine that happened almost immediately before the sinkhole’s formation.

He told residents Tuesday that Itasca has persuaded him that the formation of the collapse zone leading to the sinkhole occurred through a slow-moving fracture of the sedimentary rocks along the salt dome during a several-month span.

Hecox said the tremors residents had been feeling in the months before the sinkhole’s emergence were likely part of this process...
That would tie some of the damages to homes in the area and the bubbling prior, (ignored by both TB and LDNR), directly to the cavern collapse, I think. I hope they are still involved with the analysis...

Although that has been my position all along, and this was not an instantaneous 'Frack out'; I do maintain that nonetheless it was a slow-motion 'Frack out'. It was a process that happened months before 5600 ft. below the earth, and only reached fruition on Aug. 3rd. It was a geologic episode of enormous proportions, and very instantaneous in geological terms.

There are also new developments that are old, yet no one seemed to catch it, until now.

TEXAS BRINE seems to be the fall guy and AGENT for OCCIDENTAL CHEMICAL CORPORATION!

OCCIDENTAL CHEMICAL CORPORATION OWNS THE ‘STINKHOLE’

Source: http://dnr.louisiana.gov/assets/docs...exas.Brine.pdf

Before anyone becomes upset, may I remind, these are Official Government Documents proving my assertions in their own words and in their own maps. I had nothing to do with these documents. Go to the source, please.

These were buried so deep, that it took me almost a year to find them again.

This whole affair has taken a very strange turn, and seems to twist in all directions, yet is supported by official government documents.

Is it true? Is truth stranger than fiction?

Louisiana Sinkhole: Answers are Forthcoming

Residents were literally diluged with information that took most off-guard, and having to view the videos to get even half the information that was imparted to them. This is truly understandable, considering the months of stone-walling, and jibber-jabber with no real answers. This is not the case now.

Finally an understanding of the Bayou Corne ‘Sinkhole’ may be at hand. Instead of boring you with a run down of each and every presentation right off the bat, let’s just introduce the Presenters, or their affiliations, and their results in a quick nutshell.

Napoleonville, LA (NBC33) — An increase in meetings about the Bayou Corne sinkhole is not leading to an increase in confidence for people forced to evacuate their homes.

Assumption Parish residents listened to presentations from state officials for two and a half hours Wednesday night. They heard detailed presentations about seismic imaging, road detour contingencies, and vent flaring.

But for people from Bayou Corne, none of those details touched on the important issue.

"But I'm not getting a lot of benefit because no one's talking about the human side of the issue," said Norm Schewe...

The Advocate has a really good article today examining studies done prior to the Oxy3 collapse and they mention the Sandia article discussed in post 138 here:

(Hooker 6,7,8 got renamed to Vulcan 1,2,3 at some point...which is also called Oxy 1,2,3 now, I'm assuming)


(Source for above map: http://ucmwww.dnr.state.la.us/ucmsearch/UCMRedir.aspx?url=http%3a%2f%2fdnrucm%2fucm%2fgrou ps%2fconservation%2fdocuments%2fooc%2f4282885.pdf. Hat tip to Freedomrox for pointing this out.)

Oxy3 is the westernmost brine well (BW) on the dome at the point that map was made, but in 1987 on page 33 in this document, Texas Brine says Hooker 6 was the only well in that westernmost area that had encountered an 'anomaly' - shale. (There is more on that on page 75.)

That doesn't agree with the 1997 article by Sandia scientists, since Hooker 6 is a little east of Hooker 8, (a.k.a. Vulcan/Oxy3). So I'm still unsure about which of those two caverns had some sort of incident prior to 1997.
Here is the Advocate story:

Shape of salt dome factor in sinkhole
Scientists say cavern created too close to edge of Napoleonville Dome

By David J. Mitchell
Advocate staff writer
February 24, 2013
It's worth reading the whole Advocate article, (good quotes from scientists in there), but I think it settles the question of what cavern Sandia was referring to in the 1995/1997 article - it was NOT the currently collapsing Oxy3. Oxy3/Hooker8 was mined after Oxy1/Hooker6, which sounds like the one described as the westernmost cavern (at the time) that was believed to have pierced through the side of the dome and rested against the supportive shale sheath.

So the question in my mind then was why mine a later cavern even further east??? This was the explanation:

Quote:
"Cartwright added that Texas Brine officials initially believed they had drilled out of the salt dome and took steps to safely create the cavern above the shale. However, later testing proved Texas Brine never went through the edge of the salt formation, he said."

Residents angry as Assumption sinkhole continues collapsing

wwltv.com
Posted on February 25, 2013 at 10:31 PM
Updated today at 1:46 PM

...
Geophyisicists now say the western side of one of the brine caverns is collapsing, filling in from deep in the Earth, causing the sinkhole at the surface to expand and contract.
...
The secretary of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources flat-out testified at the same hearing, “The cavern collapse led to the sinkhole and created a path for the natural gas to come to the surface.”
...
“The sinkhole is constantly changing. It changes every time we go out there. Not just on the surface, but in the sub-surface,” said Gary Hecox, a hydrogeologist with CB&I, formerly the Shaw Group, who is a consultant for the state about how to best handle the sinkhole.

He said it's uncharted territory.

“The cavern was 3,400 feet deep, which is deeper than any known cavern failure impacting the surface in the international record,” Hecox said.

Nowhere in the world has a brine cavern this large collapsed, and Hecox said the data shows it's not finished yet.
...
As photos from the Louisiana Environmental Action Network show, when the sinkhole first appeared, it was just 400 feet in diameter. As of mid-February, it had swallowed nine acres.

Scientists say the worst-case scenario is it could swallow 40 acres.
...

There's been quite a bit of news about this situation recently :

More evidence of stresses on evacuees (Also see the video at the link Pathfinder posted here.):

Displaced by sinkhole, Catholics turn to God for support

“There’s no other answer. If God doesn’t help us, who will?” she said as tears filled her eyes.

Gaudet was one of about 40 people who gathered at a special service at St. Jules on Feb. 22 to pray for those affected by the Bayou Corne sinkhole. Some were evacuees, others just came to offer support.

“I’m here to support these people. I don’t know any of the evacuees personally,” said Patsy Breaux, secretary for the church...

Then the Advocate reports that the cavern described in the Sandia article (Oxy1/Hooker6) is the focus of more concerns about preparedness.

Concerns raised about 2nd salt dome cavern

March 11, 2013

New seismic surveys suggest a second Texas Brine Co. LLC cavern is closer to the Napoleonville Dome’s outer face than previously thought, leading the Assumption Parish sheriff to call Friday for the need to plan for emergence of a second sinkhole in the Bayou Corne area, however unlikely the possibility may be...
Besides being closer to the salt dome than estimated, it might have an antiquated design - though this article might be specific to the geology of Kansas salt formations:

Then over the weekend, Erin Brockovich addressed the Bayou Corne community:

And the state's governor has announced plans to visit the sinkhole.

The owner of a failed salt dome cavern in Assumption Parish committed Wednesday to start the process of optional buyouts for evacuated residents, Gov. Bobby Jindal said.

In a related development Wednesday, a “spasmodic burst” of micro-earthquakes near the failed Texas Brine cavern and different types of tremors to the west of that Bayou Corne site have led to a halt in sinkhole response operations in the close vicinity of the slurry hole, parish officials said...

5:00 p.m. Info from DNR

March 17, 2013 //


The Office of Conservation is advising the public that a large “burp” event was recorded at the sinkhole shortly after 3 a.m on the morning of Sunday, March 17, related to the recent period of elevated deep seismic activity around the failed Oxy 3 cavern and the sinkhole. As has happened in past events, such as the period of elevated seismic activity that preceded the Jan. 19 “burp” event, the recent period of elevated activity was observed for several days prior to a sinkhole event. Though the deep subsurface activity appears to have calmed significantly, Conservation’s contracted experts continue to note shallower seismic activity likely related to slumping of the sinkhole sides and water movement in the sinkhole and immediately below it. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions.

The red line in the photo attached depicts the area of swampland that sloughed in when the “burp” in the sinkhole happened early this morning...

NPR: Massive Sinkhole In Louisiana Baffles Officials

by Debbie Elliott
March 20, 2013 2:24 PM

Louisiana officials are grappling with a giant sinkhole that's threatening a neighborhood. A salt mine collapsed last year, creating a series of problems regulators say they've never seen before, including tremors and oil and gas leaks and a sinkhole that now covers 9 acres.

Residents have been evacuated for more than seven months now and are losing patience.

Ernie Boudreaux lives in a trailer on Jambalaya Street in Bayou Corne, La. Strange things have been happening to his home, he says.

"It cracks. You can hear it. The doors pop open by themselves," Boudreaux says.

The front porch is separating from the trailer and sometimes he smells oil — all problems that started after the sinkhole opened less than a half mile from his house. His neighborhood is under a mandatory evacuation, but Boudreaux comes back a few days a week to care for his dog, Diesel...

There's an update on the activity at the sinkhole over the last few days:
http://assumptionla.wordpress.com/

March 23, 2013:
The Office of Conservation is advising the public that the Oxy 3/sinkhole monitoring alert status has been lowered back to Code 1 – allowing work inside and around the sinkhole to resume. The rate of subsurface activity being detected by seismic monitoring is reduced in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 area, and the waters of the sinkhole have not shown further signs of movement at surface. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions. The public is also being advised that the 3D seismic work is planned for Sunday, March 24, involving the use of boat-mounted pneumatic equipment on the waters of the sinkhole to generate the seismic signals used to help assess the status of the disturbed rock zone near and below the sinkhole.

March 25, 2013
The Office of Conservation is advising the public that the Texas Brine is beginning work on the well pad shared by the Oxy 3A and Oxy 9 wellheads in preparation for moving in a snubbing unit to re-enter the Oxy 3A wellbore and clear out blockage currently preventing direct access to the original Oxy 3 cavern. The snubbing unit is designed to provide maximum pressure control in the wellbore to ensure safety of the public and of workers on site. Contractors will be placing wooden mats on the site, as well as moving some of the equipment already stationed on site to make room for the snubbing unit, expected to be moved on site within the next week.

March 26, 2013
The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that a slough-in occurred last night along the southeastern side of the sinkhole – approximately 25 trees fell into the sinkhole along the southeastern side and a new crack, running parallel to the sinkhole edge, was observed on the Oxy 3 well pad access ramp to the sinkhole. Experts with Conservation and CB&I believe the slough-in event is linked to the period of elevated subsurface fluid and gas movement detected late last week in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3, as has been observed in previous similar events. At this time, the Oxy3/sinkhole monitoring alert status remains at Code 1, allowing work around the sinkhole to continue, as the slough-in appears to be related to the earlier subsurface activity – however, monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions.

March 28, 2013
The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that the Oxy 3/sinkhole monitoring alert status has been raised to Code 2 – requiring all work directly in and over the sinkhole to cease until further notice. Seismic monitoring has detected elevated subsurface activity in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 area indicative of fluid and gas movement below the sinkhole, and a further slough-in was observed along the southeastern side of the sinkhole this morning, with the access ramp from the Oxy 3 well pad to the sinkhole having sloughed in, along with several trees on either side of the ramp. The seismic activity is limited to the Oxy 3/sinkhole area, showing no indication of impact to the Oxy 1 area. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will continue to advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions

There are also 2 new flyovers:

Gas found under slabs of 2 homes near sinkhole
Posted: Apr 03, 2013 4:18 AM PDT Updated: Apr 03, 2013 12:19 PM PDT
Posted by WAFB Staff
BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -

Contractors reported finding the presence of gas under two homes near the massive sinkhole in southeast Louisiana...
The homes were on Sauce Piquante Lane. I think this is the location shown on this map. (Pre-sinkhole satellite view.) That would be
north of La-70, an area suffering most from tremors and odors from reports I've read.

A wonderful organization, On Wings of Care, that uses aviation for humanitarian purposes, has been
flying over the area and their latest set of of videos has the best documentation of the proximity of the community
and highway to the sinkhole that I have seen.

Here are a couple of screen captures:

An overview from south of La-70 including the sinkhole in the upper right
and the bayou winding along the bottom:


Now a tighter shot from north of La-70 looking at the sinkhole on the left side of the frame and in the lower right is the
part of the community north of the highway where gas was found:


More videos, photos and commentary are here:
http://onwingsofcare.org/index.php/p...-flyover5.html

Since there are residents who have evacuated but occasionally return home to check on pets and do work on their property, this could be a very dangerous situation. A technician with our local gas company told me that a small leak I had in a gas appliance in the garage would likely not cause a problem if I was frequently opening and closing the door to ventilate the area. But if I were to take a short trip and come back - the gas could have accumulated to explosive levels by then.

Thanks for the update on that, Tonka. Those movements are certainly unusual. They seem like a condensed version of the seiche waves at Yellowstone Lake.

That's slightly unsettling how those trees just sink straight down.

Yesterday's news declared it's ok to go back into the water:

12:05 p.m. Advisory from the Office of Conservation
April 19, 2013 //

The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that the Oxy 3/sinkhole monitoring alert status has been lowered to Code 1 – allowing work in the sinkhole area within the containment berm. Per Dr. Stephen Horton with USGS, seismic monitoring has detected an decreasing trend of subsurface activity in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 area below the sinkhole over the past few days. Seismic analysts are also advising members of the public following the seismic monitoring data online that the “LA 10” monitor has been picking up echoes of yesterday’s Pacific Ocean 7.2-magnitude earthquake that occurred off the coast of Japan, but these signals do not indicate any impact to subsurface stability in the Bayou Corne area. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions.

http://assumptionla.wordpress.com/

*************************

However, looking at the helicorders now, they have been very active since about 7am.

http://folkworm.ceri.memphis.edu/heli_temp/

**************************

Here is the explanation of the code levels:

Code 1: Minimal to no seismic activity around/below sinkhole; 10 or fewer of the sharp seismic signals associated with rock movement, called mini-earthquakes (MEQs) or the longer signals associated with gas or liquid movement, called Very Long Periods (VLPs) within 24-hour period; allows work on sinkhole and inside berm area to continue

Code 2: Restricts work directly on the sinkhole, indicates some increased seismic activity around/below sinkhole but not at a level that indicates imminent threat of sloughing or movement below sinkhole (10 to 50 MEQs or VLPs in 24 hours)

Code 3: Restricts all work inside the containment berm, indicates seismic activity has elevated to a point similar to what has been seen in past monitoring prior to a sloughing on the shore or movement beneath sinkhole (More than 50 MEQs or VLPs in 24 hours)

Assumption sinkhole’s containment wall gets extended
BY DAVID J. MITCHELL
River Parishes bureau
April 28, 2013

Texas Brine Co. is building a westward extension of a 1.5-mile containment berm encircling the Assumption Parish sinkhole because a 200-foot stretch of the earthen wall is sinking, authorities said Friday.

The berm has been under construction for months to keep oil, salt and other contaminants from escaping the 13-acre sinkhole and harming surrounding freshwater swamps, bayous and aquatic life...
