Who is Floyd J. Karsten?

His name is on the lease facility inspection report for the butane cavern.

This page on Chevron brands mentions a Floyd  Karsten:

If it’s the same person does Chevron hold liability for all the butane near the rapidly expanding sinkhole?

UPDATE, Oct. 7

Now that we have a bunch of docs about the butane cavern on our new DOCUMENTS page we notice this “Floyd J. Karsten” name a lot. The first doc we see it on is dated OCT. 1949. If he were a young oil man of twenty back then he would have a DoB of 1929[!!]. HIS NAME IS ON CURRENT DOCUMENTS. That would make him at least 83.


UPDATE – April, 2013

Also – some other info found.

His name is on the famous 38525 Well, revisied Lease Facility Inspection Report, dated June 29, 2012



UPDATE – Oct. 28, 2013

We found FLOYD L. KARSTEN on a MAP! It looks like Bayou Corne. It is from the ( CB&I ) PUBLIC BRIEFING of Sept. 17, 2013

  1. The name comes up twice in this spread sheet. Look at #68 & #75/Savoie [XLS]

  2. He’s like a “Sock Well holder”.

    I’ve never seen anyone w/so little online about themselves. Is he crusty old like 99 or what?

    How can this be?

    How can someone with such business have “nothing” “Nada” “zip” “zilch”? This isn’t passing the smell test at all.

    But most of all explain to me this… how can there be zero on the address, other than those two docs?

    see > https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&site=&source=hp&q=%22403+City+National+Bank+Bldg%22+%22HOUSTON%2C+TX+77002-0000%22&oq=%22403+City+National+Bank+Bldg%22+%22HOUSTON%2C+TX+77002-0000%22&gs_l=hp.3…1554.21760.0.25138.…0.0…1c.1.8.hp.aln5j65V3os

  3. Maybe there is a father and son Karsten. The Middle initial here is ‘J’ but some docs say middle initial ‘L.’. You get a lot when you look up Floyd L. Karsten Company …

    • OK – be sure not to confuse mid. initial guy J with L. I think L is the parent who played basketball at U. of Denver (big mining college) and J is the son and F J K is a company name too with others doing the paperword (and maybe Floyd J doesn’t even know about it!). F J K signs NO documents. odd.

  4. It use to be “Whitney National Bank” but the location has moved.

    • I did a search with Chevron.
      So far …. I think this is like the movie ‘Chinatown’. This fellow who had a tiny oil co. ‘Karsten’ (maybe in the depression years … had his name taken secretly by others to make a dummy company with that bank as an address so they could do stuff.
      They have a bunch going on at the N. Gulf-shore of Texas,

      (disclaimer: we are shootin’ smoke here so do not sue us for talking HYPOTHETICALLY about Karsten family members who have a well in Bayou Corne, Louisiana.)

  5. Running a search on Karsten & Chevron I pulled up this doc, it’s cached http://www.cnbc.com/id/33586977/partners/permalink/config.xml

    Name return is “Thomas” Karsten

  6. Ok I am really, and seriously grasping here, but so little comes back (I swear an internet scrub has occurred) I can’t look past it for whatever reason, therefor I’m sharing it 😉 (no stone unturned is my thought here)

    This is from a Google search result….

    1. Karsten Nowrot, Emeka Duruigbo: Multinational Corporations and International Law. Accountability and Compliance Issues in the Petroleum Industry
    , 47 German Yearbook of International Law 967-968 (2004)
    source: http://www.tsulaw.edu/faculty/profiles/Duruigbo_Emeka/Emeka_duruigbo_CV.pdf

    I did a “control f” search on the doc for Karsten

    Who knows, but if we stay at “we will” figure it out.

    • WordPress is putting you in a pen!
      Now I gotta wade thru a million comments like ‘Stop Snoring NOW!’ etc. in the spam bin to free all the diverted comments!

      WordPress suddenly SUCKS!!

  7. WHOA!
    (Sorry I’m not giving my contact name because the source “ROCKED IT” and I know if I need more help I can ask for it) 😉

    This is an “Orphaned Well” taken over/away from Karsten by the “State” years back.

    I have the key to the door and I’m running down the halls to get to it.

    BRB with everything I can find 🙂

    • now I am. YOU, however, were in the spam pen!
      I rescued you!

      %$#@!! WordPress.

      By the way – EVERYBODY –
      if you have you put up a comment here with
      ‘enlarge’ or ‘snoring’ here you will now get blocked.
