The failure, which bring forth the abyss
In this part of the review, we will study in detail chronicled sprawl giant sinkhole in Louisiana, which recently marked one year. Especially that usually gets there first until Wikipedia is stingy with information . American geologists say that nowhere in the world is nothing like this has ever been observed . Behind the phenomenon of the Bayu-Korn even stuck the title of “Mother of all karst failures.” Meanwhile, the failure of this creeps “methane gin”, which is powerless against the American army and the Ministry of Emergency Situations. . . .
. . . . According to geologists, it looks as if on the periphery of the dome in the entrance area of tectonic faults began pressurization associated with some deep processes. This process leads to a change in direction and velocity of groundwater and karst formation dips. Perhaps in the case of the cave Hydroxy-3 was provoked all job making Texas Brine from the end of 2009 (crimping salt caves and their extension with hot steam and water).
Through local tectonic faults gases and liquid hydrocarbons began to move upward in the section to the surface and made contact with the underground flow of the Mississippi Delta. Began “spread” of the gases in the area. Best of all outputs of methane and its associated gases were visible on the water of rivers, channels, wetlands, and then most of the karst lake. Sometimes 30 meters from residential buildings . However, numerous fixed gas sensors and the “dry” areas under the foundations of buildings, and in open areas. . . .
Against the background of alarm on the part of Texas Brine occurred strange resignation and appointment of the Secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources ( without explanation of reasons). But the main thing: the ministry for over a year knew about the emergency situation in the salt dome, and yet issued a permit for injection of radioactive waste in the production of a salt dome. . . .
