NOTE: The map is drawn on a map showing the 2006 Gulf of Mexico quake.  This Lisaleaks post says the 2006 quakes were centered around a deep water drill site“…2006 Feb 10 M5.2 event with the epicentre near to BP Atlantis deep water production facility. “

This post has links to more maps – Map Showing the 7-7 Quake, the Landslide and Ship Shoal oil leak

DATES (2013) and LOCATIONS:

All of these events are near the points affected by the Gulf of Mexico earthquake in 2006.

The NOAA Incident Map has a lot  of items in the Gulf.

    • did you see recent explanation from officials (community meeting) that the gas bubbles are “raindrops” in size? Looks like a backed up toilet blowing in most spots!

    • I was looking at same thing and wondered where 295 was in relation postings on map
      Feb. 21, 2013 (Subscription Only): APACHE is seeking to kill a highly pressured gas well at Main Pass Block 295 in the Gulf of Mexico as jack-up rig Rowan Cecil Provine mobilises for possible relief drilling at the request of US regulators.

    • yikes!
      Recently I added ‘Fuel Fix’ to the news section of the sidebar.
      I think these things connect thru basement corridors….

  1. “How a Jack-up Rig Blowout Occurs:

    …While drilling, natural gas from the surrounding formation will quite frequently enter the wellbore as the rig crew is drilling down into the earth, and this pressurized flammable gas naturally wants to float to the surface.

    So imagine a barrel-sized unit of natural gas enters the wellbore at 10,ooo feet below the rig.

    According to Boyle’s Law, the volume of gas will double each time the pressure is halved. So at 5,000 feet, it’s expanded to 2 barrels, as it migrates up to 2,500 feet, it’s at 4 barrels, 1,250 feet – 8 barrels, and so on, until the bubble has expanded to the rig floor.

    Left unmitigated, this kick can cause serious disaster on board a drilling rig, as witnessed in the case of the Hercules 265, and as seen in the Deepwater Horizon disaster.”

  2. Thanks so much for map and updates. Really scarry when you think how many of these well are blowing up in such close proximity at such high pressure. Not to mention all the gas being released on land, sinkhole, etc. I wonder if any studies have been performed to see what the sea floor was and if it has risen…if so how much…just wondering. Tried to research but not luck.

    • The other explanation that would de-bunk the idea of big methane undersea leak or fissure from BP disaster site would be if these rigs are allowed to fail for some underhanded profit reason. Like maybe they are unproductive and somehow the operators get a big insurance pay off. Or if local refineries get to jack up prices based on less product, etc.
      But that seems like a stretch.
      But, even though it would be a dirty deal… it would be less scary than our idea about methane shoving up under the Gulf and inland in the bayous.

  3. so once all the gas is gone from all these blowouts what replaces it Or not? like when you bake a cake and it rises and gets cracks in it and you stick a toothpick in it cause it still soft in the middle it sinks. I hope the whole gulf does not turn into a giant sinkhole…
