Dear DNR,

  • When is the helicorder at LA10-01 going to be fixed?
  • What is going on at the collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne? The helicorders are all screaming this weekend.
  • Why do you allow Nanometrics in Canada to adjust the helicorders at the collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne to an unreadable setting?
  • When are you giving the public an update about the cap rock at the cavern?
  • What are the cavern floor measurements now?
  • When are you going to do an aerial video for the public to see the status of the collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne?
  • What has happened at the Crosstex venue with their construction recently announced?
  • Is it wise to allow the storage of huge amounts of butane next to this unstable collapsed salt cavern at Bayou Corne?
  • What amount of butane is at the Crosstex facility now? There hasn’t been a press release from them since the middle of this month.
  • Why was the headquarters trailer moved and why was the access road to restricted?
  • How is DNR and DEQ protecting the aquifer from Bayou Corne caverns’ pollution?

Friday – Lake FUBAR like Wed. x 2 … Indonesia Quake at Night Sloshes Lake FUBAR

Everything is grumbling and rumbling down below. It is very visible even though the helicorders are set on micro-setting.  It looks like a cavern collapse or new area or wall collapse. Just a guess.

LA12 shows new fuzz effect x 2!

LA12 shows new fuzz effect. It seems the helicorders have some problems and the cavern has some problems and it looks like they are doing daytime work on the scene that shows on the helicorders. Never a dull moment all week at Lake FUBAR.
We still have no idea what is causing all this commotion on the monitors. Officials are mum.

LA10-01 Wed. a.m.

That’s understandable because it fell to pieces at LA10-01 at dinnertime on Tuesday.

LA10-02 showed a big ding just before 3 p.m. Tuesday. You can see it even though Confus-O-Metrics switched the monitors to extreme micro-setting.

LA10-01  went nuts in 2 directions at 4:30 a.m. Wed..

Mother Jones –  This Tea Partier Wants to Turn a 30-Acre Sinkhole Into a Campaign Issue

Tea party Senate candidate Rob Maness has found an issue he believes will resonate with Louisiana voters: a 30-acre, oil-burping sinkhole. During a debate with Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu on Tuesday, Maness was asked about a lawsuit over coastal erosion filed against 100 oil and gas companies last spring by a local flood protection board. For too long, the retired Air Force colonel warned, oil, gas, and chemical companies had had their way with Louisiana, with little government oversight and often at great cost to residents: “The families of Bayou Corne—it’s been over 600 days since they’ve been under evacuation.”

We give up. We don’t have any idea what this wacky graph means (from LA12 today).

AND . . .  Monday there was a lot of fluid movement at 3 p.m..

In case it matters – there’s a ton of pretty big quakes lately down in Ecuador.

Energy Department: U.S. must act now on methane emissions

WASHINGTON — The United States can’t afford to wait until it understands the amount of methane escaping from oil and gas wells, pipelines and infrastructure before plugging those leaks, officials said Monday.

“We know enough to act,” said Judi Greenwald, a deputy director for climate, environment and efficiency at the Energy Department, . . .

. . . . Under a 2012 EPA rule, companies also have until until Jan. 1, 2015 to begin using so-called “green completion” equipment that can pare volatile organic compounds and methane emissions when natural gas wells are hydraulically fractured. The EPA could seek to expand that requirement to oil wells and could impose new requirements for compressors, pneumatic valves and other equipment.
