No wonder they try and hide their cavern inventories from the public! There is only a state directive to Crosstex to get rid of product near the expanding out-of-control salt dome collapse below Lake FUBAR. That means these figures from last Sept. on this map are pretty much the same as all oil and gas companies report ‘business as usual” in Assumption Parish.
As of Sept. 2012 there were OVER 120 MILLION BARRELS of LPG just in the map area . . . not counting the rest of Assumption Parish.
DOW + KDS product shown on the map = 120,793,163
And checking just ONE of the natural gas caverns we see
MORE than 15 MILLION BARRELS in one spot.

On this map (9-2012) where we found the methane in the water wells there is a cluster of DOW storage caverns east of Grand Bayou that say they have LPG stored in them. We posted earlier that LPG stands for Liquefied Petroleum Gas and is a mix of propane and butane. The water wells are NOT the drinking water which is piped in.
When you look up the wells on the map the SONRIS records have lousy (or scrubbed) data on the cavern contents. SONRIS product type ’00′ means NO PRODUCT SPECIFIED(!).
We assume it is still LPG as it is hugely profitable right now and there’s a new export terminal for it in Texas.
Here are some of the wells in the cluster – there’s more on the map
- 972001 DOW STORAGE
- 187182 DOW STORAGE
- 181612 DOW STORAGE
- 972247 DOW STORAGE
- 145921 DOW STORAGE
- 145382 DOW STORAGE
- 971766 DOW STORAGE
- 971487 DOW STORAGE
- 971540 UCAR STORAGE
- 971541 UCAR STORAGE
We were about to look up these 3 DOW LPG storage cavern records but the SONRIS pooped out on us. So let’s look at how much LPG these 3 caverns contain -
- Well # 122209 - 4,142,803 BARRELS of LPG
- Well # 973102 - 4,727,557 BARRELS of LPG
- Well # 138107 - 4,727,557 BARRELS of LPG
TOTAL BARRELS (just those 3) – 13,597,917
THAT’S OVER 13½ MILLION BARRELS – in just 3 caverns. . . near an uncontrolled collapsing salt dome!
That would make quite a rumble if air somehow got in, say in an earthquake, and set them off!
All the wells in Assumption Parish (more than 1,200!)
Buyout delays have Bayou Corne residents outraged
BAYOU CORNE,LA (NBC33) — People living in Bayou Corne have had enough of waiting to be bought out. They say Texas Brine is wasting time and not giving any one an offer.
“Texas Brine playing a game of we’ll frustrate you. We will promise you things. We’ll disappoint you,” Nick Romero, Bayou Corne resident, described.
Texas Brine crews have appraised homes in the area, but so far no one has received a buyout offer. . . .
Thanks to Freedomrox for this tip -
SB200 Lobby Squad:
A big vote Monday at the state senate to reconsider sb200. Let them know how you feel! Contact info is on the LEAN legislative preview page. It has a button link on the sidebar too.
Lots of seismic monitor activity. LA14 going off full blast since midnight. Are they drilling, driving work trucks etc. at 3 and 4 a.m. there? Maybe a pump or machine doing the geo-phone installation. Cave-in and crumbling below usually looks more sporadic.
This weekly SONRIS report (well info from DNR) says (p. 4) a lot going on at Lake Verret and Gulf South is busy in Assumption Parish… and they are not putting in geo-phones.
New Madrid Fault Zone
This Sept. 2012 DNR map has just been put up on the ‘Methane’ page. Amounts of methane exceed 20,000 ug/l in some wells.
CLICK ON IMAGE FOR FULL SIZE
On the measurement (ug/l) Freedomrox says -
ppm stands for parts per million. There is 1000g in a kg, 1,000,000 mg in a kg, and 1,000,000,000 ug in a kg.
1000ug/kg is therefore 1ppm
1800ug/L is 1.8ppm.
So we are talking about 20.4 ppm. Essentially useless as a water well because of gas infiltration, and highly dangerous to liquid products, without extensive liberation and filtration of methane gas.
Dow Chemical to Appeal $1.2 Billion Judgment in Price Fixing Case
Dow Chemical Co. (DOW) said it plans to appeal a federal court’s judgment ordering the chemical company to pay $1.2 billion for the alleged price fixing of urethane chemicals.
The fine was ordered by a U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas, on Wednesday. Dow was one of several companies named in the price fixing suit, though other defendants had earlier settled the accusations while denying the charges. BASF Corp. had agreed to pay $51 million, while Bayer AG (BAYRY, BAYN.XE) agreed to pay $55 million and Huntsman International LLC agreed to pay $33 million. . . .
So for filler . . .
We say to Texas Brine:
“Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!”
