Crosstex Update (dated Mar. 30) -
WELL #1 – 25,429 barrels of BUTANE
WELL#2 – 10,018 barrels of PROPANE
They claim they are just doing ‘normal operations’. Really ???
They are actually ADDING more butane into the risky cavern while Bayou Corne is swamped by Lake FUBAR!
Crosstex update 3/27: 24,678 barrels of Butane in WELL #1
Crosstex update 3/29: 25,429 barrels of Butane in WELL #1 . . . they ADDED 751 barrels(!)

NEW PHOTOS -
no wonder the parish put these up secretly
Texas Brine has a new update!
DEQ has not given out ANY results on water or soil testing in 2013!
Shame on them! Page 11 of the latest Situation Summary says they have samples from January that have been analyzed. On page 12 – 14 DHH claims they haven’t gotten any new water samples to look at(!). That big oil sheen at Lake FUBAR photographed by On the Wings of Care shouldn’t change anything with water quality after all.
has a trailer at the site too. Oh, wait — Everyone BUT DHH has a trailer.
An old list of agencies providing support for the Bayou Corne “incident” from the Governor’s Office.
The DEQ FISCAL YEAR 2012-2013 WORK PLAN has NO mention of Bayou Corne!!
Just to show how much things have changed at the collapsed salt dome zone – check out this Aug. 9 DNR news release:
Today, the Commissioner of Conservation amended the Emergency Declaration dated August 3, issued to Texas Brine Company LLC regarding its salt cavern, requiring these immediate actions:
o Expeditiously drill a well to investigate the salt cavern and to further evaluate potential causes of the subsidence near its well site
- Obtain samples of any cavern content
- Provide daily reports on the progress of the activity
Commissioner Welsh said, “Texas Brine has been ordered to implement these steps as soon as possible and move full-steam ahead. There will also be continual communication with the public on their actions.” Welsh said all information flowing to the department will be posted to keep the public completely informed.
A Fly Over by On Wings of Care (whose server was down this weekend) - - they have PHOTOS TOO!

If that’s a geyser in the middle of Lake FUBAR then the recent Inspection Reports of ‘small’ bubbling are a pack of lies! They have PHOTOS too but their website is offline now. Hope it is from normal causes.
The Advocate – Truck demos vibes near sinkhole
“Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the state capitol, the House and Senate Environmental Quality committees will meet about the sinkhole’s impact on the community and its residents. “
Reporter Bill Lodge has a good article in today’s Advocate about LSU and corruption.
“Federal court filings show some LSU officials were determined to curb LSU professor Ivor van Heerden’s public criticisms of federal engineers’ design and construction of New Orleans levees that collapsed and drowned hundreds more than seven years ago.”
LSU is heavily endowed by big oil and gas companies and is very involved at the sinkhole.
[Most of the official sinkhole news is in Friday's post.]

Elementary school closes down permanently because of sinkholes – Unicoi County, Tennessee
