HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mar. 12, 2013– Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE:EPD) announced today that it has received transportation commitments to support development of a new 270-mile pipeline header system that will deliver ethane to petrochemical plants in the U.S. Gulf Coast region. As designed, the Enterprise Aegis Pipeline (“Aegis”) will originate at Enterprise’s Mont Belvieu, Texas liquids storage complex and have the capacity to transport purity ethane to multiple petrochemical facilities in Texas and Louisiana. . . .
This big project is described in gushing terms in this bankster write up:
Trend No. 1
The U.S. energy map is changing, and in order for oil and gas producers to get the most bang for their buck, they’ve got to get production from unconventional regions to the highest paying markets in the country. That’s where Enterprise comes in. The partnership has an expansive asset footprint along the U.S. Gulf Coast and its capacity for processing natural gas and fractionating natural gas liquids is hard for competitors to match, let alone beat. However, much of this production is suddenly coming from the northeast corner of the country, and not the Gulf Coast as it has in the past. As a result, Enterprise is moving full steam ahead on its planned ethane pipeline, the ATEX Express, which will run from the Marcellus Shale to the Gulf Coast.
The ATEX Express will have access to every ethylene plant in the U.S., and some producers like Chesapeake Energy who have already secured capacity on the line acknowledge that their production won’t increase until this project comes online. . . .

This 2008 sinkhole in a collapsed salt dome in Daisetta, Texas shows what happens when water meets salt dome.

Then it is 3 football fields in size!

Lots more and scary description of this rapid dome collapse - Houston Chronicle – Daisetta’s huge sinkhole draws state officials’ attention
“Daisetta sits above a salt dome. Salt water separated from crude oil taken from production wells is often disposed of in wells in the dome.”
Thanks to Freedomrox for story date -
For the month of April DOTD has Bayou Corne inspection reports (no photos) done on April 12, April 22 and April 27. (The top list item for April hasn’t all the reports in it.)
Texas Brine put out another one of their “fact” sheets. They say the west side of Lake FUBAR is stable. umm-hmmm.
Forgotston says: TO MEMBERS OF THE LSU BOARD OF SUPERVISORS: Please stop wasting our hard-earned tax dollars appealing the judgment requiring you to obey the Louisiana Public Records Law. This topic is worth watching for obvious reasons!
2.8 quake Lincolnton, Georgia
2.2 quake – Mitchell, Georgia
The formula for big profits – have an “accident” at a plant – U.S. Gulf Coast gasoline made a killing after that fire in Krotz Springs.
We will add a new part on the sidebar with River Level info – here is a good page from WAFB – River Stages

This is from a reader -
. . the 1st DNR Senate Committee meeting I went to in 2011 about Lake Peigneur.
Eugene Owen talks about arsenic contamination. Steve Langlinais spoke about salt water intrusion. Of course the Senate Committee tuned Save Lake Peigneur people out!!
Eugene Owen, of Baton Rouge, Director & Chairman of Utility Holdings Inc., the holding company for Baton Rouge Water Company, Parish Water Company, Inc., Ascension Water Company and LAWCO, New Iberia, stated that 8 years ago because of contamination problems, wells had to be moved, costing millions. Increased withdrawal from the Chicot Aquifer by AGL’s (JISH) proposed well-pumping would significantly accelerate the rate of potential contaminates, arsenic.
Steve Langlinais, engineer, Vermilion Parish, stated that a hydrologist claims that this could lower the withdrawal level in the Chicot aquifer as much as 17 to 75 feet. He also stated that the Chicot aquifer has not recovered from the 1994 water withdrawal from the first two natural gas salt dome caverns and one concern would be more salt water intrusion.
Salt water worries are in this article in the Advocate posted today.
