TRANSACTIONS-GULF COAST ASSOCIATION OF GEOLOGICAL SOCIETIES Volume XXVI, 1976

Jules Braunstein and Claude E. McMichael

An exploratory well, the Shell Oil Company, State Lease 3956 No. 1, Offshore St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, was completed in 1963 at a total depth of 8538 feet. The last 1300 feet of hole was cored and drilled through volcanic material of Late Cretaceous Age. The location of this well is shown on Figure 1.
Pre-drilling seismic data had revealed the presence on this prospect of intrusive material with a density slightly higher than that of the surrounding sediments. Gravity data defined a weak maximum here, and no salt was believed to be present.
The igneous material consisted of angular fragments of altered porphyritic basic rock. In cores it proved to be evenly bedded and cemented by sparry calcite. Radioactivity age dating fixed a minimum age of crystallization of…

  2. There was a lot of report of Tar Volcanoes and Mud Volcanoes all over the US in the 1800’s.
    After the Charleston South Carolina earthquake in 1886 this report stop and unexplained booming sounds as well and sand blows and bad gasses coming out ground as well.

  3. Great! Thanks y’all. There’s more of them, too! There are tons of active vents and seeps offshore. There are more ancient volcanoes sitting right offshore…right near that Davy Jones play…more inland, too. There’s a big rift that runs from Northeast Texas across the top of our state…and an area that borders the Tuscaloosa trend, which they are drilling into. And this isn’t speculation. They are really there and there is real recorded scientific/geological evidence and accepted studies for all of them. The oil and gas industry has been playing around in these places for years. Now, they are boasting about their ability to drill down to 30,000 feet and more right smack into them. Having to develop new equipment to “handle” (as if!) the horrendous amounts of pressure and temperatures! So maybe all those whacky theories about the extent of the destruction BP did aren’t so crazy after all!

    • By the way, Minden, our local ammunitions depot sits on top of a major tectonic area!! Let’s drill into volcanos with this new high pressured fracturing technology with chemicals and sludge meant to keep those fractures open!! Then, we’ll drill some more holes to bury the drilling sludge in, which creeps into sediment layers and faults, keeping all those cracks moving…seeping poisoned, radioactive material into our water supply. Drill more holes to store billions of cubic feet of the same stuff we took out of the ground…and lets put it in areas of naturally high hydrocarbon seepage and faults. Then, lets build all our nuclear power facilities and chemical manufacturing plants 2 feet away. Throw in an illegally over-stocked ammunitions facility just for fun. Great planning! Oh, and don’t forget…while all this gas and brine is travelling through natural and man-made fractures, keeping them open and moving…we are sitting on the downside of a slope into the Gulf of Mexico!!!! But, they’ve got this. It’s all under control!

      • My feeling is the biggest experts on caverns in the US do duo duty with the military advising on underground nuke tests etc.
        Then they begin to go up the career ladder with more and more security “clearances” on the way up. They get caught in a military-secret-shrouded-job tarbaby, get all stuck and can never go back to civilian job or academia or anything at all because of all the ‘secrets’ they know. So they steam right on ahead caught in atrap they learn to embrace.
        All top sciences in US (in my opinion) related to military industry.
        Fool around in Darpa webpages or FEMA files long enough and you find out who owns the brains.

        (author of item in link I differ with on many issues but since the Jimmy Savile revelations in the UK this story is haunting)

    • “aren’t so crazy after all” — yeah! That’s mostly why I have some BP articles here. There are many good BP blogs devoted to that disaster so I don’t put every little thing up about them.
      When I saw that volcano thing I thought maybe the seafloor in that area is soet of petrified (non-geology talk) and cracks more easily than regular sea floor. But BP wanted goodied under it and deliberately ignored info about volcano history etc.
      Jumping up and down on a rice paper trampoline and … woops!
